પગ ધોઉં નાવ પધારો, રામજી, પગ ધોઉં નાવ પધારો;
ઊડ ગઇ શલ્યા કાષ્ઠ કી ખેતી, તુમ હીં મનમેં વિચારો ...  ટેક
pag dho-uň nāv padhāro, rām-ji, pag dho-uň nāv padhāro;
uda ga-ii shalyā kāshtha ki kheti, tum hi man-meň vichāro ... repeat

કટી લો રે નીર તીર અતિ ન્યારો, આગે કોશ ઉવારો; **
વિશ્વ જીવનકે જીવિકા મોહે, મોહે રંક કાં મારો ... ૧
kati lo re nir tir ati nyāro, āge kosh uvāro; **
vishva jivan-ke jivikā mohe, mohe raňk kāň māro ... 1

હૈ કશું તત્વ એ હી પદરજમેં, નાહિ ન દોષ તુમ્હારો;
અગ્રદાસ ઉતરાય જ દીનો, નૌકા સહિત કુલ તાર્યો ... ૨
hai kashuň tatva e hi pad-raj-meň, nāhi na dosh tum-hāro;
agra-dās utarāy ja dino, na-u-kā sahit kul tāryo ... 2

** કટી લો નીર તીર હૈ નેડો, કોંસાઈ કહે ઉપાય;
** kati lo nira tira hai nedo, kosā-ii kahe upāya;

English Translation:
0. Let me first wash your feet, Rama. After I wash your feet, you may board my boat. This is because, just as your foot touched a rock, the rock was transformed as Ahilya. Now, if my boat, which is made of wood and is the only source of my livelihood is turned a woman, how can I survive. Just think of it.

1. Lord Rama asks the boatman, "The opposite bank of this river. What is the way out of reaching there?" The boatman replies, "The expanse of this river is similar to that of life and this boat is my source of income. If I lose this, how could a poor man like me can survive?"

2. He further cleverly asks, there is nothing wrong with you, but there is something in the dust of your feet that, if it touches anything, that turns into a woman. At last, agreeing to the pleas of the boatman, by divine grace of Rama, not only the boatman, but his entire clan elevated to the divine realm.
