[dum-dara dum-dara mast-mast dara]
[dum-dara dum-dara mast-mast dara]
[dum-dara dum-dum]

[all stanza x2]


tērē binā bēsvādī bēsvādī ratiyā The night is tasteless without you,
ō sajnā oh, beloved
[both lines x2]
rūkhī rē ō rūkhī rē, Dry, oh, dry,
kāṭūm̐ rē kaṭē, kaṭē na I pass it with difficulty
tērē binā bēsvādī bēsvādī ratiyā The night is tasteless without you,
ō sajnā oh, beloved
[both lines x2]


[dum-dara dum-dara mast-mast dara]
[dum-dara dum-dara mast-mast dara]
[dum-dara dum-dum]
ō [ham-dum] bin tērē kyā jīnā? Oh [ham-dum] what life is it, without you?
[all stanza x2]


na jā cākrī kē mārē Don't leave by reasons of service!
na jā sautan pukārē Don’t leave, (my) mistress summons!
sāvan āēgā tō pūchēgā If Sawan comes, it will ask
na jā rē Don't go
phīkī phīkī bēsvādī Insipid and tasteless
yah ratiyā this night
kāṭūm̐ rē kaṭē, kaṭē na I pass it with difficulty
ab tērē binā sajnā sajnā kāṭē, kaṭē na Now, it passes with difficulty without you, beloved
kāṭē na kāṭē na tērē binā it hardly passes without You


tērē binā bēsvādī bēsvādī ratiyā The night is tasteless without you,
ō sajnā oh, beloved


[dum-dara dum-dara mast-mast dara]
[dum-dara dum-dara mast-mast dara]
[dum-dara dum-dum]
ō [ham-dum] bin tērē kyā jīnā? Oh [ham-dum] what life is it, without you?


tērē binā cām̐d kā sōnā, khōṭā rē Without you the gold of the moon seems false
pīlī pīlī dhūl uṛāvē jhūṭhā rē (as if) fake yellow dust were raised
tērē binā sōnā pītal Without you gold is bronze
tērē saṁg kīkar pīpal With you, a kikar is a pipal
ā jā kāṭē na ratiyā Come, the night hardly passes!


[dum-dara dum-dara mast-mast dara]
[dum-dara dum-dara mast-mast dara]
[dum-dara dum-dum]
ō [ham-dum] bin tērē kyā jīnā? Oh [ham-dum] what life is it, without you?


tērē binā bēsvādī bēsvādī ratiyā The nights is tasteless without you,
ō sajnā oh, beloved
[both lines x2]
rūkhī rē ō rūkhī rē, kāṭūm̐ rē kaṭē, kaṭē na Insipid, oh, insipid, it passes with difficulty


[dum-dara dum-dara mast-mast dara]
[dum-dara dum-dara mast-mast dara]
[dum-dara dum-dum]
ō [ham-dum] bin tērē kyā jīnā? Oh [ham-dum] what life is it, without you?
[all stanza x2]
