Ramabhi Rama Manasu Ranjilla
By Sage Thyagaraja
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Ramabhi Rama manasu ranjilla palkaka Radha
Eemahini velasina thela sada nadho
Bhangaru medi panbupai bhama mani Janaki,
Srunga rinchu koni cheluvonda ninnu kani
Pongusu malle virula poojinchu vela Sri Hari,
Sangeethamu padumni Swami Thyagarajutho.
Oh Rama who is pretty, can you not talk sweetly to me
Do you know why were you were born in this world
When the great Lady Janaki sitting on a golden cot,
Having made her up and looking very pretty,
Is worshipping you with jasmine, with great love,
Can you not ask this Thyagaraja to sing a song.
