i thought it was paavaka bhayahara as krsna drank the forest fire and saved the gopa gopis once thus removing the fear caused by fire(paavaka)

I can't recall who, but someone very recently sang on TV, "Bhavaka Bhaya Hara". It should of course be Pavaka Bhaya Hara.
I found the wrong text also in a couple of places:
1. http://srgm.info/srgm-docs/govardhanagiri.pdf
2.http://www.karnatik.com/c1195.shtml
