(Srila Prabhupada sings Jaya Radha-Madhava by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura)

jaya rādhā-mādhava, kuñja-bihārī
gopī-jana-vallabha, giri-vara-dhārī
yaśodā-nandana, gopi-jana-rañjana
yāmuna-tīra-vana-cārī

TRANSLATION

Kṛṣṇa is the lover of Rādhā. He displays many amorous pastimes in the groves of Vṛndāvana. He is the lover of the cowherd maidens of Vraja, the holder of the great hill named Govardhana, the beloved son of mother Yaśodā, the delighter of the inhabitants of Vraja, and He wanders in the forests along the banks of the River Yamunā.

Srila Prabhupada was very fond of this sort and sang it just before his lectures. In Allahabad and Gorakhpur, Srila Prabhupada fell into a trance after singing the first two lines, and after some time he came back into external consciousness and said, "Now just chant Hare Krishna." Srila Prabhupada said that this song is "a picture of Vrindavan. Everything is there -- Srimati Radharani, Vrindavan, Govardhana, Yasoda, and all the cowherd boys."
