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


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.
