Alpa Kathar Manush Ami

Alpa kathar manush ami
Alpa katha koy
Beshi katha balte amar
Prane kare bhoy
Beshi kathar sathe thake
Mithya parichoy
Taito ami alpa katha koy


I am a man of few words.
I speak very little.
When I talk much,
Fear captures my heart.
When I speak too much,
Utter falsehood becomes my name.
Therefore, I am a man of few words.
