(1) Sej wo sooni dekh ke rovun main din raen,
Piya piya main karat hoon pehron, pal bhar sukh na chaen.

[Day and night, I see an empty bed, and cry
Calling for my beloved, I remain restless for ever.]

(2) Bhai ray malla jo hum kon paar utaar,
Haath ka devongi mandra, gal ka devun haar.

[Oh, brother oarsman, if you let me cross the river,
I have for you my gold bangle, my necklace.]

(3) Khusrau baazi prem ki main khelun pi ke sung,
Jeet gayi to piya moray, haari, pi kay sung.

[I, Khusrau, play the game of love with my beloved,
If I win, the beloved’s mine, defeated, I’m beloved’s.]

(4) Bae gaye baalam, bae gaye nadia kinaar,
Aapay paar utar gaye, hum to rahay ehi paar.

[He has crossed, the beloved has crossed,
Has reached the other side, on his own.
With me, left here alone.]

(5) Ek guni nay yeh gun keena,
Hariyal pinjray mein dedeena;
Dekho jadoogar ka kamaal,
Daalay hara, nikaalay laal.

[One trickster performed this trick,
Inserted a (green) parrot into the cage;
Oh, what an act the sorcerer shows,
Puts in green, takes out red !]

(6) Gori sovay sej par, mukh par daaray kes,
Chal Khusrau ghar aapnay, saanjh bhayee chahu des.

[The fair maiden rests on the wreath (of roses),
Her tresses covering her face,
Let us, Oh Khusrau go back now,
The dark dusk settles in four corners.]
