கீசுகீசு என்று எங்கும் ஆனைச்சாத்தான் கலந்து
பேசின பேச்சரவம் கேட்டிலையோ? பேய்ப்பெண்ணே!
காசும் பிறப்பும் கலகலப்பக் கை பேர்த்து
வாசநறும் குழல் ஆய்ச்சியர் மத்தினால்
ஓசை படுத்த தயிரரவம் கேட்டிலையோ?
நாயகப் பெண்பிள்ளாய்! நாராயணன் மூர்த்தி
கேசவனைப் பாடவும் நீகேட்டே கிடத்தியோ?
தேச முடையாய்! திறவேலோர் எம்பாவாய்.

This song is sung to wake up the leader of the Gopikas.

Hey you beautiful young lady, the leader of our group, can’t you hear the loud chirping of the love birds? You are sleeping as if you have been possessed ! Cant you hear the beautiful rhythmic movement of the two logs that the yadhava women use to churn the curd constantly.Our Narayanan(krishna) resides in everyone as body and soul. He is the epitome of beauty. He took the avatar of Krishna  and was born and brought up in Yadhava kula. He killed the demon ‘Kesi’ who was sent by Kamsa, Krishna’s maternal uncle and hence got the name ‘Kesavan’.

We have been singing the glory of our krishna in this month of Marghazhi ,in the early hours of the day and you have been pretending enough to be sleeping ,knowing we are waiting outside your door. Enough now! wake up. This is not  good conduct by you. Get up and open the door!

P.S. It is out of love for Krishna that i have attempted this translation. A million apologies to all the scholars and the learned if i have committed any mistake(s) .
