Ke Oi Dake Aire Bacha Ai

Ke oi dake aire bacha ai

Mayer katha jena shona jai

Kahar seba karte ese

Achi rato kahar sebai

Dhaner lobhe maner lobhe

Mago ar na jena din jai


Translation

Who calls to me,

“My child, come, come”?

I came into the world

To serve the Mother.

Alas, whom do I serve now?

I serve ignorance-night,

I serve material-wealth,

I serve human-pride.

Mother, may I not any more waste

My precious aspiration-life.
