Give me back my sweet one

Words : Extract from ‘The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna’ - Music : Naren

O Madhavi, give me back my sweet one!

Give me, give me back my sweet one!

Give him back for he is mine

And make me your slave for ever

 

He is my life

As water is to the fish

You have hidden him in your bosom

I am a simple guileless girl

And you have stolen

My beloved!

 

Give me, give me back my sweetest one!

Give me, give me back for he is mine!

Give me, give me back my sweetest one!

Give him back o Madhavi

Give him back to me

 

O Madhavi, I shall die for my sweet one!

I cannot bear to live without him

Without my Madhava I shall die

Oh give him, give him back to me!

 

He is my life

As water is to the fish

You have hidden him in your bosom

I am a simple guileless girl

And you have stolen

My beloved!

 

Give me, give me back my sweetest one! 

Give me, give me back for he is mine! 

Give me, give me back my sweetest one! 

Give him back o Madhavi

Give him back to me

 

How far from here is Madhura?

Where dwells the beloved of my soul, of my soul

 

Give him back to me!...

 

So give him back to me! Give him back to me!...

 

Oh Madhavi, give me back my sweet one

Give me, give me back my sweet one
