      In stanza 2 it should be “Govinda embo gunaulla neerige” and not “Govinda neerige gunaulla neerige”

      In stanza 3 it should be “Bindumaadhavana” and not “Bindumoodhavana”

    There are many mistakes in the lyrics. Correct the following :
    2nd line “Bindige Odedare” and not”Bindige Odidare”
    5th line “Govinda Embo” and not”Govinda Neerige”
    6th line “Amruta Paanakke” and not”Amrutada Neerige”
    7th line “Bindumaadhavana” and not “Bindumoodhavana ” Remove “Pu”

    Meaning: O my sister(akka) bring the pot(bindige=small pot either of metal or of mud), will go(hOguve) to (fetch) water(nIrige), do bring the pot.
    A: if the pot breaks, it only costs a paise(kAsu – the smallest portion of a rupee), do bring the pot.

    C1:bring the pot for (fetching) water which has the rasa(taste) called rAmanAma; bring the pot so that I can spend some private time (ekAnta) with attractive girls.

    C2:bring the pot for (fetching) water which has the quality(guna) called govinda; bring the pot for (fetching) water which has many(aVava) qualities of elixir (amrtava)

    C3:bring the pot – I will go to the abode(ghatta) of bindumAdhava; I will perform abhisheka of purandaravithala – bring the pot.
    (Note: Perhaps the song refers to the pot as the human body)
