Lyrics 

yamunā-tīra-vānīra-nikuñje mandaṃ āsthitaṃ |
prāha-prema-bharodbhrāntaṃ mādhavaṃ rādhikā-sakhī ||

nindati candanam indukiraṇam anu vindati khedam adhīram |
vyāla-nilaya-milanena garalam iva kalayati malaya-samīram ||1||

mādhava manasija-viśikha-bhayād iva bhāvanayā tvayi līnā |
sā virahe tava dīnā ||dhruvapadaṃ||

avirala-nipatita-madana-śarādiva bhavadavanāya vīśālam |
sva-hṛdaya-marmaṇi varma karoti sajala-nalinī-dala-jālam ||2||

kusuma-viśikha-śara-talpam analpa-vilāsa-kalā-kamanīyam |
vratam iva tava parirambha-sukhāya karoti kusuma-śayanīyam ||3||

vahati ca calita-vilocana-jala-bharam ānana-kamalam udāram |
vidhum iva vikaṭa-vidhuntuda-danta-dalana-galitāmṛta-dhāram ||4||

vilikhati rahasi kuraṅga-madena bhavantam asama-śara-bhūtam |
praṇamati makaram adho vinidhāya kare ca śaraṃ nava-cūtam ||5||

dhyāna-layena puraḥ parikalpya bhavantam atīva durāpam |
vilapati hasati viṣīdati roditi cañcati muñcati tāpam ||6||

prati-padam idam api nigadati mādhava tava caraṇe patitāham |
tvayi vimukhe mayi sapadi sudhā-nidhirapi tanute tanu-dāham ||7||

śrī-jayadeva-bhaṇitam idam adhikaṃ yadi manasā naṭanīyam |
hari-virahākula-ballava-yuvati-sakhī-vacanaṃ paṭhanīyam ||8||

    It is great to have this blog. Since Google does not have Sanskrit translations as yet, you would be rendering great service if you could also come up with translations, preferably into English, of these incomparable lyrics.
