maiṁ hūm̐ sām̐pōṁ kī rānī I am the queen of serpents,
kāṭā mām̐gē na pānī (if) bitten, don't (even) ask for water,
sāgar sē mōtī chīnūm̐ I seize pearls from the ocean,
dīpak sē jyōti chīnūm̐ I seize the light from the lamp,
patthar sē āg lagā lūm̐ I strike fire from the rocks,
sīnē sē rāz curā lūm̐ from the chests, I steal secrets
hāṁ, curā lūm̐ Yes, I steal
curā lūm̐ I steal
hāṁ, hāṁ, curā lūm̐ Yes, yes, I steal
