Lyrics

Transliterated by Ramkabharosa
0. Ab maratā piyasā, ab maratā piyāsā. (2)
(Refrain) Dhobiyā jal bīch me` maratā piyāsā. (2)
The washer-man (the soul) stands there right in the waters
(of divine knowledge), (yet is) dying of thirst (ignorance).

1. Jal me` thaṛ pīye nahī mūrakh, achha jal hai khāsā. (2)
Apane ghar ke marama na jāne (2), kare dhobiyan ke āsā.
Jal bīch maratā piyāsā. (Refrain) (ṛāūī)
Standing in the water, the fool does not drink – (but) the water is good.
He does not know that is the body’s essence – he only wants to wash.
He, right in the middle of the water, is dying of thirst.

2. Chhin me` dhobiyā rove dhove, chhin me` rahe udasā. (2)
Aape bandhe karam kī rassī (2), āpan gar ke phansā.
Jal bīch maratā piyāsā. (Refrain)
One minute the washer-man weeps aloud – the next, he’s motionless & sad.
He himself is braiding the noose of his deeds – and tying it around his neck.
He, right in the middle of the water, is dying of thirst.

3. Sachhā sabun lehī na murakh hai santan ke pāsā. (2)
Dāg puranā chhutat nahī (2), dhovat bārah māsā.
Jal bīch maratā piyāsā. (Refrain)
The fool forgets to pick up the soap of truth – that wise men always use.
The clothes have an ancient stain that won’t go away – even by washing
for twelve full months. He, in the middle of the water, is dying of thirst.

4. Ek rātī ko jorī lagāve, chhori diye bharī masā. (2)
Kahe Kabīr suno bhāī sādho (2), āchhat annā upāsā.
Jal bīch maratā piyāsā. (Refrain)
He uses up all his strength for a mite – and gives up a thousand times more.
Says Kabir, “Listen, good people (brother) – in the presence of food, you fast.
He, right in the middle of the water, is dying of thirst.”
