Phule phule dhole dhole,
Bohey kiba mridu baay.

Phule phule dhole dhole,
Bohey kibaa mridu baay.
Totini hillolo tuley,
Kollole choliya jaay.
Piko kibaa kunje kunje,
Piko kibaa kunje kunje,
Kuhu kuhu kuhu gaay.
Ki jaani kishero laagi,
Praano kore haay-haay.

Phule phule dhole dhole,
Bohey kibaa mridu baay.
Totini hillolo tuley,
Kollole choliyaa jaay.
Piko kibaa kunje kunje,
Piko kibaa kunje kunje,
Kuhu kuhu kuhu gaay.
Ki jaani kishero laagi,
Praano kore haay-haay.

Phule phule dhole dhole,
Bohey kibaa mridu baay.
Phule phule dhole dhole,
Bohey kiba mridu baay.

A touch of sweetness in the breeze that
Softly cradles buds today
A winding stream that gently gurgles
In its happy course at play
The cuckoo sings in trees and gardens
a cuhoo cuhoo cuhoo lay
My absent heart does not know why
It’s absolutely borne away
