Notes: Published in the year 1882. Although included in the Prem section of Geetabitan this songs from a reference in a letter to Mohit Chandra Sen appears to be written for children. He writes in connection to a proposal for publishing Shishu-khanda along with a volume of his books.

... I had written a song for annaprashan of a girl child : Ogo nabin atithi... apart from the song Bal golap more bal ... for young boys.

The notation of the song was prepared by Pratibhasundari Devi and was published in the Baalak magazine by Jnyanadanandini Devi in its section named Sahaj Gaan Siksha. Perhaps this was the first notation that was published in a printed form. It was hand written and printed on a coarse paper. It was inscribed with the words 'Litho/By H.C.Haldar. It appears to be the name of the artist Harish Chandra Haldar.

Transliteration in English

Bal, golap, more bal,
Tui phutibi, sakhee, kabe.
Phool phuteche chari pash, chand hasichhe sudhahas,
Bayupheliche mridu shwas, pakhi gaiche madhurabe-
Tui phutibi, sakhee, kabe.
Prate pareche, shishirkona, sanjhe bahichhe dakhina baay,
Kache phoolbala sari sari-
Durepatar aarale sanjher taara mukhakhani dekhite chai.
Bayudur hote aasiyache, jato bhramar  phirichhe kachhe,
Kochi kisholayguli rayeche nayan tuli-
Taara shudhaiche mili sabe,
Tuiphutibi, sakhee, kabe.
