Alaa nuvvu choosthe chalu, veluthu veluthu venuthirigi
Adho lanti thenela baanam, digadha edhaloki
As you turn back and look at me...a honey smeared arrow stings my heart

Nuvvu nadiche dhaarulalo poola ghandhale oopiriga
Jatha nadiche manasu kadhe haayi raagale aamaniga
The sweet scent of the flowers in the path you walk is my breath
This love story of two hearts is a melodious spring season to me
