Din Chalechhe Khela Dhulai

Din chalechhe khela dhulai

Dakbo kabe prabhu tomai

Khelar katha shudhui mane pare

Bidya nai buddhi nai

Murkha bale sabai tai

Jethai dekhe sethai ghrina kare


Translation

I am wasting my time in sports and fun.

O Lord, I know not when I shall call You.

Only a life of amusement satisfies me.

No knowledge have I, no intelligence have I;

Therefore, everybody calls me a fool.

Alas, they also do something more unthinkable:

They despise my innocent stupidity,

My innocent ignorance.
