Here is my attempt...Suggestions/corrections welcome.
I have a doubt with the few words in the lyrics & have written the right words, as I heard, in the brackets. Pls feel free to correct.

This is a composition of Kanakadasa.

pallavi

bArO = come
krSnayya = addressing Krishna as krSnayya
bArO
ninna = your
bhaktara = devotees
manEgiha = house now
(manegiga?) = house now
(bArO)

Come Krishnayya, come to your devotees house now.

anupallavi

bArO = come
ninna = your
mukha = face
tOrO = show
ninna = your
sari = equal
bArO (yArO ?) = come (who)
jagadhara = addressing Krishna as the lord of the universe
shIlanE = one with good nature
(bArO)

Come, show your face, who is equal to you in this universe/world?

caraNam 1

andugE = ankles
pada gavu = sandals (made of wood, worn by the gods)
kAlandugE = ankles
kEru (kIru ?) = small
gejjE = jingles/anklets (ghungroo in Hindi)
dhim dhimi dhimi dhimi dhimi enuta = jingles make the sound dhim dhimi
pongoLa = flute
nUdutta = playing
barayya = come
(bArO)

One who has sandals on his feet & small jingles that make the sound dhim dhimi worn on your ankles, come, playing the flute.

caraNam 2

kaNkaNa = bangles
karadalli = hand
ponnungura = gold ring
hoLeyuta = sparkling
kinkiNi kiNI kiNi kiNi enuta = bangles make the sound kinkini
pongoLalanUdutta bArayya = playing the flute
bArO krSnayya = come krishnayya
(bArO)

One who has sparkling gold rings & has bangles in his hand that make the sound kinkini, come, palying the flute.

CaraNam 3

vAsa = stay
uDupi li = in Udupi ( Udupi is a town in Dakshina Kannada, Karnataka state in India that has a famous Krishna temple)
nElayAdi = (resting on aadi shesha ?)
kEshavanE = another name for Krishna
dAsa = devotee
ninna = your
pada = feet
dAsa = devotee/slave
ninna pada
dAsa ninna pada dAsa
kanakanu (salahalu ?) = salahalu is to protect
bArayya = come
(bArO)

Oh Keshava, you stay in Udupi, I am a devotee at your feet, come & protect me.

I think neleyAdi comes from the full form kAgineleyAdi kEshava, which means Adi kEshava from kAginele.

You are right Sreeni. I think that fits better. I was reading it as "neleyada".

That should be correct as Kaginele is the birth place of Kanakadasa, the composer of this song. Makes sense :)
Thank you.
