உங்கள் புழக்கடைத் தோட்டத்து வாவியுள்
செங்கழுனீர் வாய் நெகிழ்ந்து ஆம்பல்வாய் கூம்பினகாண்
செங்கற் பொடிக் கூரை வெண்பல் தவத்தவர்
தங்கள் திருக்கோயில் சங்கிடுவான் போதந்தார்
எங்களை முன்னம் எழுப்புவான் வாய்பேசும்
நங்காய்! எழுந்திராய் நாணாதாய்! நாவுடையாய்!
சங்கோடு சக்கரம் ஏந்தும் தடக்கையன்
பங்கயக் கண்ணானைப் பாடேலோர் எம்பாவாய்.

This song is sung to wake up a Gopika who had planned the previous night with such conviction that she would get up first and wake up everyone


Yesterday, the lady  who said would wake up first and then wake up all of us with so much assertiveness, what are you doing now? You have forgotten everything and are sleeping like a log. Are you not ashamed? You are just words but no action.

Back in your garden, the lillies have gone back to sleep and the morning flowers have all blossomed.The Sages who wear the robe dyed ln brick red with shining white teeth have all started towards their respective places of worship.

Wake up and join us now. Let us sing praises about our lord Krishna,  who wears The conch and Chakra(wheel) and who has beautiful lotus eyes.

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) .
