Maha Sarasvati Ma, give me water,
Loosen the knots that tie my tongue.
Let the words trapped inside flow from me,
Sarasvati, mother, master, lover.
I have a song inside to sing for you.
Give me water, Maha Sarasvati Ma.
Mother, master, lover, queen.
Let me sing of you; give me water.
Maha Sarasvati Ma, pour your water down on me.
Let it wash away my tangled thoughts.
Set the words inside me free; Sarasvati, mother, master, dream.
I will sing for you, pour down your water on me!
