This particular song describes the playful and often mischievous antics of a young Lord Krishna and his troubled mother.  The Song-  Lord Krishnas would merrily get away with mischief and his disregards towards the chores given by his mother.  Krishna is loitering around in the forest and playing his flute, tapping the beat with his feet...but hes supposed to look after his cattle ? He plays his mesmerizing flute by the banks of the Yamuna River, blissful under the shade of a tree! The Gopis (his female companions) warn him...Wait  Krishna your mother is coming to get you.... where will you run today? But  they say  your flute mesmerizes us and makes us  forget everything...but your mother will still come and catch you and tie you up to the same tree as punishment... cause you have forsaken your duty towards your herd!!  Where will you run today O Krishna!!
