Amma Naanu Devaraane



This is a beautiful bhavageethe about the playful story of little Krishna as a butter thief.

Little Krishna steals butter and when mother Yashoda reprimands him tries to convince her of his innocence.

He says, “amma, look at it yourself…. the butter pot is hung so high on the ceiling….how can I even bring it down with my little hands ?!!”

Krishna then goes to the extent of saying, “I swear to God, I did not steal the butter, all these gopa baalas together have smeared it on my mouth !!”" :)

These lyrics are very endearingly penned by H.S.Venkatesh Murthy and music composed by Mysore Ananthaswamy.

I hope you listen and enjoy this song. I look forward to your candid feedback.

Thank you very much in advance :)!!

Lyrics:

In English with Translation



amma naanu dEvaraaNe beNNe kaddillammaa...
O mother, I swear to God, I did not steal the butter
ellaa sEri nanna baayige beNNeya mettidarammaa..
Everyone together have smeared the butter on my mouth ||

neenE nODu beNNe gaDige soorina niluvelli
Look at it, yourself, the butter pot is up on the ceiling
hEgettaane tegiyali amma nannaa puTTaa kaigaLalli
How can I remove it with my little hands||

shyaama hELidaa beNNe mettida tanna baayi oresuttaa

Krishna is saying this, as he wiped the butter on his mouth
beNNe oresidaa kaiyya bennaa hindE maresuttaa..
And hid his hand that he wiped with behind his back||

ettida kaiyyaa kaDagOlannu moolEliTTu nakkaLu gOpi
Placing the butter whipper/churner in a corner, the gOpika (Yashoda) smiled
sooradaasa priya shyaamanaa muttiTTu nakkaLu gOpi
Kissing little Krishna, whom Sooradasa adores, the gopika laughed, with love ||


In Kannada

ಅಮ್ಮಾ ನಾನು ದೇವರಾಣೆ ಬೆಣ್ಣೆ ಕದ್ದಿಲ್ಲಮ್ಮಾ ...
ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಸೇರಿ ನನ್ನ ಬಾಯಿಗೆ ಬೆಣ್ಣೆಯ ಮೆತ್ತಿದರಮ್ಮಾ ..||

ನೀನೆ ನೋಡು ಬೆಣ್ಣೆ ಗಡಿಗೆ ಸೂರಿನ ನಿಳುವೆಲ್ಲಿ
ಹೆಗೆತ್ತಾನೆ ತೆಗಿಯಲಿ ಅಮ್ಮಾ ನನ್ನಾ ಪುಟ್ಟಾ ಕೈಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ||

ಶ್ಯಾಮ ಹೇಳಿದಾ ಬೆಣ್ಣೆ ಮೆಟ್ಟಿದ ತನ್ನ ಬಾಯಿ ಒರೆಸುತ್ತಾ
ಬೆಣ್ಣೆ ಒರೆಸಿದಾ ಕೈಯ್ಯ ಬೆನ್ನಾ ಹಿಂದೆ ಮರೆಸುತ್ತಾ.. ||

ಎತ್ತಿದ ಕೈಯ್ಯಾ ಕಡಗೋಲನ್ನು ಮೂಲೆಲಿಟ್ಟು ನಕ್ಕಳು ಗೋಪಿ
ಸೂರದಾಸ ಪ್ರಿಯ ಶ್ಯಾಮನಾ ಮುತ್ತಿಟ್ಟು ನಕ್ಕಳು ಗೋಪಿ ||
