Thaanaga valiya vandhu peranandam tharu Nandan thiru maindhan,
Thayirodu vennaikku thandavamadi , samaikkum pothu idai kurumbukal aadi,
Kuyil isai kuralaale thalattu padi,

Our Gopala is a very smart boy,
The Son Of Nanda comes of his own accord ,
And gives us very great joy,
After dancing for curd as well as butter ,
Doing mischief while we are cooking,
Sing lullaby in his nightingale like voice ,
And making our babes sleep.
The song along with the flute to make the world swoon,
Apart from that His presence with his pretty face,
When we know it it is the question of respect and pride,
Would the knowledge of Veda and music be necessary.
1.When we go bathing he will come along with us,
Without stoping he will point out ups and downs on the eay,
Without telling any one he will climb the tree,
And afterwards showing various plays and give back our saris.
2. If butter is over then there is curd,
And there is pot for us to churn as much as we want,
If he attracts the eye, then there is our mind,
If he also attracts the mind, what else is there?
3.For one fist of beaten rice he will give the world,
For one hand of butter, he would give himself.
Just if you think “I will give”, it is sufficient,
For giving to him is impossible thing
4.The witness for his feet is snake Kalinga,
The witness for his pretty walk is the banks of Yamuna,
And curd pot stand is the complete witness ,
For his putting his hand in the pot and taking the butter.
5.All kids of Gokul crowd round him,.
When there is crowd, the Vedas play s and dances there,
And all jobs keep on pending ,
And my minds wish nobody seems to know.
