Raastaar Gaan

Buker bhitor onnyo karur gaan,

Cholchey shurey paal tuley ujaan.

Roopshayorer shyamla nodir tirey

cchutir raater neel jochonar bhirey,

hariye jawa rokto joba rode

lukiye pitch er rastaa gulo rnodey,

amaar paaye rokto jobar bheer

chhutchey gaari korno tuner tir.

Jaachey bheshey jonakir ek shaari

Hoyeto ekta chotto dokan baari

Aalor malaye shajiye debey boley

shonaar horin shongshaar gorey toley.

Taito taara laal alotey stobdho,

shaada kaalo haater kaachey jobdo.

Ghurni jhorer monoroma taaley

shaada kaaloo rasta ta posh maaney.

Haater cchowaye gayok jorey thont

baastob boley ebar jege oth.

Khuchro kotha, ticketolar bag-ey

Rokto joba paan er pick er daagey

Raamdhanu hoye manushgulor shor

shophed aaloye dicchey shilmohor.

Roopkathar alaoye holo phanki

shohor er aaj golpo howa baaki.

Gaaner shurey shopno hoye cchilish,

Aaj nishithey poroma hoye milish?
