This is a translation of a sweet hindi song, all about how the residents of Vraj are always thinking of Krishna and singing "Govinda Damodara Madhaveti!". I sang this one in the play for Janmasthami as well.

he krsna he yadhava he sakheti,
govinda damodara madhaveti

while churning the butter one mother in Vraj,
Remembers the butter thief little Krsna.
with a choked voice she is crying-
Govinda damodara madhaveti!

another lady while cleaning her yard,
says, "hey govinda please play in my yard!"
In deep meditation she is singing,
Govinda damodara madhaveti!

Mother Yasoda awakens Krsna,
"wake up O Enchanter and open Your eyes"
Look at the door all your friends are waiting,
Govinda damodara madhaveti!

The schollars absorbed in all their studies,
and the merchants immersed in making money
No matter who they all are singing-
Govinda damodara madhaveti!

with pails in their hands some sweet young girls,
with their two hands begin milking the cows,
they sing to the rythm of milk squirting (flowing)
Govinda damodara madhaveti!

Chorus Govinda damodara madhaveti

the pujari gets up in the morning
he goes to the temple to awake the deity
saying ocean of milk open your eyes please!
Govinda damodara madhaveti!

a gopi's small child sleeps in a cradle
she rocks the baby by pulling a rope
completely absorbed in love she sings-
Govinda damodara madhaveti!

within that crib the baby starts crying,
still absorbed in pure love she says sweetly,
please don't cry just sing with me
Govinda damodara madhaveti!

a bride awakens her husband eagerly,
"my dear wake up please give up your sleep!
now is the time to glorify Hari"-
Govinda damodara madhaveti!

For those interested, here also is the Original Hindi:
he krsna he yadava he sakheti
govinda damodara madhaveti
dari mathani dadhi me kisine,
tabe dhyana ayo dadhi cora ka hi
gada gada kantha pukarati hai,
govinda damodara madhaveti

he lipati angana nari koi
govinda ave mam grha khele
dhyanastha me yahi pada ga rahi hai, govinda ..

mata yasoda hari ko jagave
jago utho mohana naina kholo
dvare khare gvala bula rahe hai, govinda...

vidhyanuragi nija pustakonmen,
arthanuragi dhana sancarohmen
ye hi nirali dhvani ga rahi hai, govinda,..

le ke  karonmen dohani anokhi,
gau dugdha kare avala naveli
gau dugdha dhara sanga ga rahi hai, govinda...

jage pujari hari madiron men,
jake jagaven hariko sabere
he ksirasindhu ab netra kholo, govinda...

soya kisika suta palane men,
dori karon se jab khencati hai
ho prema magna usane pukara, govinda,...

roya kisika suta palane men,
ho prema magna usne pukara
rovo na gavo prabhu sanga mere, govinda..

koi naveli patiko jagave
pranesa jago ab ninda tyago
bela yahi hai hari gita gavo, govinda...
