Hey mehuliyana vadhya tofaan,
nikade chhe haiyare maro to jaan (4)

Dhodhmaar eh to varsya kare,
Gaarje vaadal veej chamkya kare (2)
Hey mehuliyana vadhya tofaan,
nikade chhe haiyare maro to jaan (2)

Kichad thay bahu lapsi javaai,
Melate kapda kem schoole javay (2)
Hey mehuliyana vadhya tofaan,
nikade chhe haiyare maro to jaan (2)

Raincoat peru to topi oodi jaai
Pavanma chatrino kagado thaai (2)
Hey mehuliyana vadhya tofaan,
nikade chhe haiyare maro to jaan (2)
Hey the rain is turning into a violent storm
I’m so scared! What will become of me?

The rain is pouring down heavily
The clouds are thundering and the lightning flashes
Hey the rain is turning into a violent storm
I’m so scared!  What will become of me?

It gets so muddy, I slip and slide
How can I wear my dirty clothes to school?
Hey the rain is turning into a violent storm
I’m so scared! What will become of me?

When I wear my rain coat, my hat flies away
In the wind, my umbrella becomes like a crow
Hey the rain is turning into a violent storm
I’m so scared! What will become of me?
