Neru Vandha Vashi Mela Neram Pookkuma
Will truth bloom in the water-course, would it?
Neru Vandha Vazhiyale Anbu Pookkuma
Will love bloom, in the path where truth dwells?

Anbu Mela Asai Poosu Solluma
Will the hope that comes with love sing a melody?
Antha Osai Dhan Bhoomikku Swasamakidu
That melody is the breath of this world!

Aadalodakam Adi Nikkanu,
In deep sorrow, my heart sways!
Aadalodoral Vannu Nikkanu
With such deep sorrow, comes another one!

Ullil Ullathu Kannil Ullathu
Whatever is within is what is in the eye.
Deviyane Ullilanathu,
In the name of god, only love dwells within!

Aadalodakam Adi Nikkanu
In deep sorrow, my heart sways!
Aadalodoral Vannu Nikkanu
With such deep sorrow, comes another one!

Ullil Ullathu Kannil Ullathu
Whatever is within and whatever is in the eye
Chillupole Vannu Nikkanu
is clear like a shard of glass!

Jeeva Dhayaka Ra Jeeva Lochana
Oh giver of life, oh beautiful eyed one,
Kuthinayi Pattu Padalu
Come sing along, and be my friend!

Ambu Kollalu Mullu Kuthalu
As cupid’s arrows strike piercing me with a thorn-like prick
Kanda Nalamake Vingalu
my throat goes dry in anguish!

Nulli Nokkalu Kalla Nokkalu
Taking little peeks, playfully ogling around,
Premalokayadi Nikkanu
keeps love’s canoe splashing about!

Meni Nokkalu Pali Nokkalu
Checking ourselves out, peeking and catching a glance,
Aalu Kale Aravangal Poothorunga Theeppakrikka
and when people are around dressing and dolling up
Ullilulla Kadu Pookalu
makes the forest within bloom in love!

Mele Ambili Thazhe Nenjilu
Pretty like the moon up there, shone your bright smile down here!
Snana Seemayake Vannu Nirchari
Even in the bath, your thoughts don’t leave me, you’re divine!

Ninnil Ullathu Ennil Ullathu
What is within you and what is within me
Aaru Kanda Thonnalavalu
are but whose imaginations?

Aadalodakam Adi Nikkanu,
In deep sorrow, my heart sways!
Aadalodoral Vannu Nikkanu
With such deep sorrow, comes another one!

Ullil Ullathu Kannil Ullathu
Whatever is within is what is in the eye.
Deviyane Ullilanathu,
In the name of god, only love dwells within!
