Pallavi: The one who tends to the cows, darling, please don't go, I tell you!

1: I'll give you well-boiled milk, crystalized sugar AND sugar!
Handful of butter too! Don't you go out in the hot sun!

2: I don't need boiled milk, crystalized sugar
I'd happily graze the cows and be back in a moment!

3: On the banks of the river Jamuna, there's the fear of thieves
Should they come and beat you up, you would be distressed!

4: Have you seen a thief among thieves, tell me mother!
If they do come, I would reduce them to pieces!

5: In gOvardhana hill, there are ferocious animals
If you see a bear or a tiger, you would be so scared, my darling

6: When the forest beasts see me, they come running to me
When they come in hoards, I will hunt them and win!

7: When endearing balarAmA comes and asks for you
What kind of answer can I give him, tell me!

8: Tell him that I am playing ball with friends in the street
When he comes looking for me, I would appear before him!


ketakits,
If you need word by word meaning, I will give that too.

Lakshman, I think the word is pASamuLLa, in the beginning of the 7th line.

Also, the last word in the last line is ninRiDuvEn.
