चोला माटी के

चोला माटी के
चोला माटी के राम 
एकर का भरोसा..


द्रोना जैसे गुरु चले गये, करन जैसे दानी
बाली जैसे बीर चले गये, रावन जैसे अभिमानी
चोला माटी के राम
एकर का भरोसा..  

कोनो रिहिस ना कोनो रहा भई
आए सबके पारी, इक दिन आए सबके पारी
काल कोनोला छोड़े नाही - राजा, रंक, भिकारी
चोला माटी के राम
एकर का भरोसा..  

भौ से पार लगे बर हे ते
हरी के नाम सुमर ले, संघी हरी के नाम सुमर ले
ए दुनिया माया के रे पगला
जीवन मुक्ति कर ले
चोला माटी के राम
एकर का भरोसा..

and a rough translation

A Cloak of Clay

A cloak of clay, this body
Trust it not..

Teachers as great as Drona, givers as great as Karan
Heroes as great as Baali, self-possessed ones such as Raavan
All perished, remained nobody
A cloak of clay, this body
Trust it not..

Nobody is free from its shackles
Nobody is left behind, o brother
One day comes each one’s turn
The king, the poor, the beggar
Time spares nobody
A cloak of clay, this body
Trust it not..

Cross the sea of existence
Remember His names, o friend
This world rests on illusion, o deluded one
Seek release
A cloak of clay, this body
Trust it not..
