Meaning:

pallavi
My mind is all aflutter, Oh Krishna, listening to the joyous, enchanting music of your flute, My mind is all aflutter!

anupallavi
Transfixed, I stood there like a statue, oblivious of even the passage of time, hey, mysterious flautist!

caraNam
In this clear moonlight (that makes a day of the night), I strain my eyebrows hard and look in your direction, the mellow tunes of your flute come floating in the breeze... my eyes feel drowsy and a new feeling sweeps my being

Come! Mould my tender heart, make it full and fill me with joy! Come! take me to a lonely grove and fill me with the emotions of ecstatic union!

You are the one who danced and made merry on the sun-bathed waves of the ocean! Am I to go on pleading for you with melting heart, While you are enjoying yourself with other women? Is it right? Is it proper? Is it what dharma is? My heart dances even like your eardrops do when you blissfully play the flute! (My sad heart is all aflutter)
