Lyrics 

kuru yadu-nandana candana-śiśiratareṇa kareṇa payodhare |
mṛga-mada-patrakam atra mano-bhava-maṅgala-kalaśa-sahodare ||1||

nijagāda sā yadu-nandane krīḍati hṛdaya-nandane ||dhruvapadaṃ||||

ali-kula-gañjanam añjanakaṃ rati-nāyaka-sāyaka-mocane |
tvad-adhara-cumbana-lambita-kajjala ujjvalaya priya locane ||2||

nayana-kuraṅga-taraṅga-vikasa-nirāsa-kare śruti-maṇḍale |
manasija-pāśa-vilāsa-dhare śubha-veśa niveśaya kuṇḍale ||3||

bhramara-cayaṃ racayantam upari ruciraṃ suciraṃ mama sammukhe |
jita-kamale vimale parikarmaya narma-janakam alakaṃ mukhe ||4||

mṛga-mada-rasa-valitaṃ lalitaṃ kuru tilakam alika-rajani-kare |
vihita-kalaṅka-kalaṃ kamalānana viśramita-śrama-sīkare ||5||

mama rucire cikure kuru mānada manasija-dhvaja-cāmare |
