When a man dies, he is of no use to anyone.
But when an animal dies, it is used in ten ways. ||1||
What do I know, about the state of my karma?
What do I know, O Baba? ||1||Pause||
His bones burn, like a bundle of logs;
his hair burns like a bale of hay. ||2||
Says Kabeer, the man wakes up,
only when the Messenger of Death hits him over the head with his club. ||3||2|
