(refrain) r ke bajabe bamsi syama braje nai (go)
mana duhkhe kande eka kamalini rai go
syama braje nai
phuler basara kali
ami saba nisi jagiya
syama ase nai (go)
syama virohe kande kande suka sari
syama virohe kande kande vraja nari
baja na syamer venu
gosthe cale na dhenu
vrajete cale gecche praner kanai (go)
Refrain: Now that Syama has left Braja, who else will play the flute?
1) Since Syama has left Braja, the beautiful lotus-like Radharani is so unhappy that She is constantly weeping.
2) While decorating a forest bower with wildflowers, Radharani exclaims, “My dear friend, all night I lie awake weeping because Syama will not be coming. He is no longer in Braja!”
3) Due to separation of Syama both male and female parrots are weeping, along with the cowherd girls of Braja. Syama is no longer playing the flute and the cows no longer go out to the pasture. “My dear friend, our life and soul, Krsna, has left Braja!”
