Bengali Lyrics:

 

                    এসো শ্যামল সুন্দর,
আনো তব তাপহরা তৃষাহরা সঙ্গসুধা ।
বিরহিণী চাহিয়া আছে আকাশে ॥

সে যে ব্যথিত হৃদয় আছে বিছায়ে
                  তমালকুঞ্জ পথে সজল ছায়াতে
                  নয়নে জাগিছে করুণ রাগিণী

বকুলমুকুল রেখেছে গাঁ‍থিয়া
বাজিছে অঙ্গনে মিলনবাঁ‍শরি ।
আনো সাথে তোমার মন্দিরা
চঞ্চল নৃত্যের বাজিবে ছন্দে সে _
বাজিবে কঙ্কণ
বাজিবে কিঙ্কিণী,

                 ঝঙ্কারিবে মঞ্জীর রুণু রুণু ॥

 

 

The Song In English Transliteration:

 

                                   Esho shyamolo sundaro,

Aano tabo tapohora trishahora songhosudha

Birohini chahiya aache aakashe

Se je byathito hridoy aache bichaye

                                Tamalkunjopothe sajol chayate

                                Nayone jagiche karuno ragini

Bakulmukul rekheche ganthia,

Bajiche aangone milanobansori

                              Aano sathe tomaro mondira

                             Chancholo nrittero bajibe chonde se

                             Bajibe konkano bajibe kingkini,

                             Jhonkaribe monjiro runo runo

 

 

The Song In English Translation:

 

                     O Dark Beauty, come upon us,

Let your elixir-presence rid heat and thirst.

The lovelorn earth gazes at the skies.

She awaits you laying down her aching heart

                  On pathways in moist shades of Tamal groves,

                  There’s a soulful tune in her eyes.

She has woven Bakul* buds,

Her flute plays on the note of union in the courtyard.

                  Bring with you your Mandira,**

                  To ring to the playful beat of the great dance—

                  Bangles will jangle, waistband will jingle,

                  Ringing anklets will continue to tinkle.

*Bakul is a sweet scented tiny flower

**Cymbal
