Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Nám ná jáná máná ná máná
Rauṋiin parii ese páshe
Svarńáloke áṋká cokhe
Balle ámáy hese hese

Álor deshe nivás ámár
Káje ghuri sárá saḿsár
T́áni táháy je more cáy
Ámáre je bhálabáse

Ghure beŕái sadái ámi
Uŕe cali náhi thámi
Priitir d́ore báṋdhá paŕe
Giitir sure jái bhese

নাম না-জানা মানা না-মানা
রঙীন পরী এসে' পাশে
স্বর্ণালোকে আঁকা চোখে
বললে আমায় হেসে' হেসে'

আলোর দেশে নিবাস আমার
কাজে ঘুরি সারা সংসার
টানি তাহায় যে মোরে চায়
আমারে যে ভালবাসে

ঘুরে বেড়াই সদাই আমি
উড়ে' চলি নাহি থামি'
প্রীতির ডোরে বাঁধা পড়ে'
গীতির সুরে যাই ভেসে'

Name unknown, revered or not,
Coming beside, a colorful Fairy.
Eyes traced by golden beams,
He spoke to me, always smiling.

"My home is in splendor's realm;
With work the whole world I travel.
Those who long for Me, I lean toward them,
The persons who love Me.

"Incessantly I roam about;
Without halt I fly around.
Getting bound by love's strings,
I go on rising in a hymn's melody."

Musical notations


Currently, only the following audio rendition is available. Though the audio quality is acceptable, it should be noted that the last two words of the third line in the second verse are transposed. The meaning remains the same; but this alteration is not supported by any published Bengali source, and there is no compelling reason for the change. Perhaps the singer was motivated by some sort of poetic symmetry, but other songs are not bound by that. Hence, this recording cannot be accepted unreservedly.
