What shall we do now, O friend, when we see things never seen before, on earth?
There is chaos in the land; there is no recognition of good nor evil; there are gangs of thugs
in all directions, and these lads have no fear in their hearts.
Countless people listened, in this land; they quit their many modes of work and livelihood;
There is no regard for those with titles; nor are people charmed by the foreign speech;
those with no regard for laws are engaged in worship! To the government we complain, only in vain.
Foreign cloth makes their blood boil; if it's below par, they treat it with contempt;
overwhelmed with emotion, they chant 'vandE', and use inappropriate words, in their fury!
