Swami ni maravaku ra - Don't forget Swami (Sai Baba) dear - Song advice to Sai devotees

Sung by Prof. Anilkumar Kamaraju in a recent Sai orgn. event in Solapur, Maharashtra, India. Video put up on my youtube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0m7OXBC2ifw, 3 min. 46 secs.

Telugu lyrics followed by [my non-expert rough English translation within square brackets which differs slightly from English subtitle text in the video] :

Swami ni maravaku ra Sai Baba Devudu ra
Swami ni maravaku ra Sai Baba Devudu ra

[Don't forget Swami dear; Sai Baba is (a) god dear
Don't forget Swami dear; Sai Baba is (a) god dear]

Bhajanalo neevu paadina gaani
Bhaktulu anduru pogidina gaani
(pathala?) chancu poyina gaani
Swami ni maravaku ra Sai Baba Devudu ra

[Whether you sing bhajans
whether you are praised by all devotees
whether you lose the chance to sing
Don't forget Swami dear; Sai Baba is (a) god dear]

Sevadalamulo cherina gaani
Sevalu enno chesina gaani
scarfulu badgulu laagina gaani
convenerlu (kasirina?) gaani
Swami ni maravaku ra Sai Baba Devudu ra

[Whether you join Sevadal
whether you have done lots of Seva
whether your (Sevadal) scarf and badge are taken away from you
whether the (Sai samithi/orgn.) convener (shouts?) at you
Don't forget Swami dear; Sai Baba is (a) god dear]

Neetheega neevu unna gaani
ne pai nindalu (muutina?) gaani
parama bhaktuduani pilichina gaani
(paapistholani palakina?) gaani
Swami ni maravaku ra Sai Baba Devudu ra

[Whether you are being ethical (Dharmic)
whether you are showered with criticism
whether you are praised as a great devotee
whether you are called a (great sinner?)
Don't forget Swami dear; Sai Baba is (a) god dear]

Udyogamulo unna gaani
oopi raalaka poyina gaani
officeralu archina gaani
companyvaaru karchina gaani
Swami ni maravaku ra Sai Baba Devudu ra

[Whether you are having a job (employment)
whether you are not having time to (even) breathe
whether the officer shouts at you
whether the company people bite you
Don't forget Swami dear; Sai Baba is (a) god dear]

Intlovaaru adagina gaani
Untlo shakti (oodigina?) gaani
friendulu (katchyam?) chesina gaani
Ninduga dandalu vesina gaani
Swami ni maravaku ra Sai Baba Devudu ra

[Whether people at home ask (about) you
whether you have strength in your body
whether friends laugh at you
whether you are saluted many times
Don't forget Swami dear; Sai Baba is (a) god dear]

Baba ninnu chuuchina gaani
baguga neeto navvina gaani
interview neekicchina gaani
iravaiyo linu vacchina gaani
Swami ni maravaku ra Sai Baba Devudu ra

[Whether Baba sees you
whether Baba smiles at you
whether you are given an interview (by Baba)
whether you get the 20th line (for Darshan)
Don't forget Swami dear; Sai Baba is (a) god dear]
