Bandanene Ranga Bandanene Enna - Purandaradasaru
bandanEne ranga bandanEne enna|p|
tande bAlakrishNa navanIta cOra |a|
Did bAlakrishNa, my father, ranga, the butter thief, come to me? (asks yashOda)
ghalu ghalu ghaluremba ponnandige gejje
hoLe hoLe hoLe yuva pAdavanUruta
nali nali nalidADuta ungura araLele
thaLa thaLa thaLa hoLeyuta shri krishNa |1|
Did vAsudEva come with 'gejje' making the sound 'ghalu', with sparkling feet, with ring on his toe finger, with shining body.
kiNi kiNi kiNI remba karada kankaNa
jhaNa jhaNa jhaNa remba naDuvina ghaNTe
dhaNa dhaNa dhaNa remba pAdada toDavina
miNa miNa miNa kuNidADuta shri krishNa |2|
Did He come with kaNkaNa (on the forehead), with bell on His pelvis, playing all along?
hiDi hiDi hiDi yendu purandara viTalana
duDu duDu duDu duDane ODuta
naDi naDi naDI yendu pellane piDiyalu
biDi biDi biDi dammayya ennuta shri krishNa |3|
If he has come, try to catch Him, do not allow him to run away again, when we ask Him to come, he will beg us to leave him. But do not do that!
