English Translation

Pallavi

Hey friend, Why is this trick,
Ask my God to come here,
At this time my mind melts during day and night,
I hate both milk and rice when I see them.

Anupallavi

He lives in the hill where God holds the conch,
He is my friend who removes accumulated karma,
Even if the entire universe is destroyed, I would not forget him,
And I am definite that he would shower his grace.

Charanam

1. Ask him to give permission to worship his feet

2. He is only Lord Vishnu who married,
The lady who gave him the garland she already wore.

3. He went and showered his grace on,
That elephant that entreated loudly, "Oh primeval basis"
Oh friend, he would lie down on a banyan leaf,
Please bring him with great hospitality.

4. He is the young Gopala, who relieved the problems of the Pandavas,
Hearing the bad troubles of mother Panchali who was shivering out of fear, he gave her dress,
He won over Ravana who had won using deceit with the help of valorous Hanuman,
I would do penance seeking his support and he would come himself and marry me.

Pallavi
Go and bring my God, Oh friend,
His great moon like face is shining like embers

Anupallavi

Why delay, this is the nectar like spring time,
He is a God who created the six faced one,
Who taught him the meaning of Vedas
And whose fame is sung by whole earth,
And who is appreciated by pretty deva maiden (Or who likes Deva manohari ragam)
He wanders everywhere just like an orphan,
And he hides a lady in half of his body.
Charanam

By always thinking about Lord Shiva my love for him is going beyond

1. He is the one who is appreciated by Lord Vishnu

2. Oh friend, I searched and searched for him and said he cannot be found,
And suddenly he stood before me like millions of God of love

3. He told me he would marry me publicly and made several promises,
And not understanding that I have self-respect he made me want and worry for him.

4. With river Ganges on his matted hair and moon shaking with him,
With music dancing, and raga mangala bhairavi,
Dancing in that crowd, and with Vishnu and Brahma singing and keeping beats.

English Translation

Pallavi

Oh friend, Please request the God to come,
The God who is praised in land of Muruga,
Who is the lad who makes Goddess Shivakami happy,

Anupallavi

Should you cause delay, for at this time,
He makes me confused by sending arrows of god of love,

Charanam

Tell me, is his heart stone, Why is he doing these tricks

1. With a desire to see the full moon like face

2. The one with deceit in his mind, he walked and came slowly,
And tottered and tottered and fell on Goddess Valli

3. Is he thinking of coming here riding on the coloured peacock, is it deceit,
Somehow this earth and sky seem to rotate.
And the eyes tell that they will wait without sleeping.

4. One day he came in my dream, it was a great event,
There was no use of doing penance thinking that,
His merciful mind will one day shower his grace,
Will the time of early youth come again?
Will the state of living with a melted mind cease?
And my hands are shivering to hug,
The one living on Pazhani mountain and is giving me this.

English Translation

Pallavi

Oh my friend, Ask Lord Muruga to come,
He will be riding on a great peacock in the garden

Anupallavi

He was born out of the eye of him who fought with God of death,
He is the king of kings who makes Lord Vishnu happy,
He showed his six faces and then disappeared,
He would be sitting in the six Padai Veedus of Murugan,
He was the one who killed the asuras who differed with him,
He would cut them and tie them well

Charanam

Oh girl, I will never ever forget,
And I have made mind very firm

(Ettukada Lyrics)

1. He is the great merciful one saluted by the people of this world,

2. He is the Vaithi Subramanya who removed the past Karmas,
He is the husband of Valli who has taken strange forms,

3. He would get mixed in all stones and grasses,
He would be in all words and actions,
He would do service to the ancient devas,
He is very able and has a handsome form, oh lass

4. He called Lord Shiva to Swami Malai,
And told the meanings of Vedas to him,
All day long he shut in prison,
Lord Brahma who is appreciated by Goddess Saraswathi,
He heard the Thirupugazh of Arunagiri Nathar,
Which removes bad things and gave him his grace,
Why further delay, go as my emissary,
And I would perform penance telling that I need his support.

English Translation

Pallavi
Who is the man who created tantrums outside our gate,
Oh Friend, Please find out his native place and his name and tell me.

Anupallavi
Is he the dancer of the wealthy Chidambaram,
Is he god of the divine hills who puts an end to the Karma load,
Is he the world famous Subrahmanya, Is he the consort of Saraswathi,
Go and see, why are you afraid and put an end to my need, Of pretty one.

Charanam

One of them said that it is a lisping voice,
Another One said it is the red pretty eyes,
Another one said that it is a streak of lightning,
Another said it is her swan like gait,
What does it matter to whoever he is to us,
Ask for six thousand gold coins,
At least one thousand of them would easily give it.
