Krishna thulasi poo choodi jnan innum,

Kanna , Kari mukhil varna , nee ,
Yennanen kannil kulirai vannirupoo
Oh Krishna who is of the colour of black cloud ,
You have come and staying in my eye as coolness.
Kalindi vechi kala ganathin sruthi ,
Melikkan thano , ninnodakkuzhal ?
Gokula vasikalkkayi mathramo ninde,
Lokaika bodham Venuganam.
Was your sweet music of the Flute to merge,
With the sound produced by the waves of River Yamuna?
Was the music of your flude which made the world wise ,
Only meant for the people of Gokula?
