Chakkani raja Margamu
Chakkani raja margamu undaga,
SAndhula doraneelee Oh Manasa
Chikkani paalu mee gada undaga,
Cheeyanu gangasagara mele.
Kantiki Sundara taramagu roopame,
Mukkanti noda chelage naamame,
Thyagarajinthane nelakona deivamee,
Itu vanti Sri Saketha Ramuni Bhakthiyane.
When there is a pretty royal highway,
Why travel in narrow streets, Oh mind.
When you have thick tasty milk available,
Firmly say no to the hateful toddy.
When the eyes feast of his very pretty form,
When Lord Shiva repeats his name,
When that God is living with Thyagaraja
And when you have this type of devotion to Rama of Ayodhya,
Why travel in narrow streets
