Jai Ganesh Jai Ganesh, Jai Ganesh deva
Mata jaki Parvati, Pita Mahadeva.
Ek dant dayavant, char bhuja dhari
Mathe sindur sohai, muse ki savari,
Andhan ko ankh det, kodhin ko kaya
Banjhan ko putra det, nirdhan ko maya,
Pan chadhe, phul chadhe, aur chadhe meva
Ladduan ka bhog lage, saht kare seva,
Jai Ganesh, Jai Ganesh, Jai Ganesh deva,
Mata jaki Parvati, Pita Mahadeva
