    In English it runs like this:
    <?XML:NAMESPACE PREFIX = O />
    “Pleasure of men with two wives I saw today sir,
    Oh my father, for ever it’s enough enough I say”

    “When I asked one wife to do the cooking
    What! Are you mad, Go go away she said
    Escaping from her when I asked the other to do it
    Oh my father, it is too hot can’t touch it she said
    “Wishing to make love with the senior wife
    As I climbed upstairs one night
    One gripped my legs and the other my head
    Pulled me up and down repeatedly, right?
    “If I turn on that wife’s side this wife troubles me
    If I turn on this wife’s side that wife troubles me
    No joy out of that wife and no use of this wife
    With these two wives broken affection is my life
    “Wishing to have a bath warming up the oil
    As I was being anointed by my junior one
    Senior one rushed there and broke the hot water pot
    Leaving me perched there clad with none
    “My body parted everyday in half here
    When you are enjoying blissfully there
    Oh Sacred-bodied Purandara Vittala
    In a corner they broke me’n left me dumped

    BTW, which Kriti is this? I have no idea.
