Pallavi:

Kshirasaagara Shayana ! Nannu – Chintala Betta Valena? Rama!

Anupallavi:

Vaarana Raajunu Brovanu Vegame

Vacchinadi Vinnaanuraa Rama!

Charanam:

Naarimaniki Jiralicchinadi

Nade Ne Vinnaanura

Chirudau Ramadaasuni Bandhamu

Dirchinadi Vinnanuraa

Nirajaakshikai Niradhi Daatina

Ni Keerthini Vinnanuraa

Taarakanaama Tyagaraajanuta!

Dayato Neelukoraa Rama!

Meaning:

Lord, reclining in the Ocean of Milk! O Rama! Should you keep me immersed in sorrow ?

Did you not rush to the succour to elephant king Gajendra ?

I have heard of how you protected the honour of Draupadi by supplying clothes.

I have also heard that you were responsible for the release of Bhakta Ramadaasa from incarceration.

For the sake of lotus-eyed Sita, you crossed the ocean, earned fame for yourself. One who possess Taaraka as name! Lord! Deign to accept and grace me.
