Kawlu piyanpath wahanna sandalu thalaawae
" Shut the windows of your ( mansion's ) balcony "
Oba durai nethata maa sitina laweli thalaawae
" You are far from my sight from the sandy plains where I live
Wilaka duraka mal pipunae apata nowemai
"Flowers bloom in a far away lake, (but) not for us"
Oru paaru awith balaa yaawi wil diya gamburui
" Boats come and sail away, the lake waters are deep"
Mal suwanda puraa adee yanne bambarun komai ?
" How are the bees attracted to the sweet smell of flowers ?"
Sandalu thalaawata pelpatha duranam bomai
" ( But ) My humble abode is very far from your mansion"
Kiri sinaa salana sandawatha ahasema randunaawae
" Your smiling face, like the moon, let it stay in the sky"
Ingi marana tharu kalum ahasata noma penunaawae
"Let the sky not see the glow of the twinkling stars"
Sitha aaetha aran yana wimanae sandalu thalaawae
" (When) The mind floats far away towards your (mansion's) balcony"
Kawlu piyan wasanu manavi nethukan hamuwae
" Shut your windows from my sight"
