Yeppadi thaan yennullam
Oothukaadu Venkata Subba iyer
Yeppadi thaan yennullam pugundu yennai adimai kondeero,
Isai tarum kuzhal odu kundalam olira
Ivai tharum suvayodu vandhinam arula
Oppuyar illada uthamane-oru,
Uraga nadamaadum vittagane,
Ulagirunda vaay tiranda padiyo,
Veliyil cholla manam thulludhe,
Cholla venum, venum yendra aasai kollude,
Kulir oli mugam kandu naani naani-un,
Koi malar paadathil vennai thallude,
Ini oru ulagam unnai thavira yenakkoru sukam illai Vennkadava,
Thani oru mudi mel ila mayilandi thogai aniya thandava,
Uriyeri kalavaadai thozhar oodu unakku yenakken tindhrava,
Oor ariym munbu annaiyidam sendru ondrum ariyaadu nindrava.
By what means did you enter my mind and enslaved me,
Along wit flute giving music and ear studs shining,
And with bees moving around due to the taste given by those.
Oh incomparably great one,
Oh magician who danced on the snake,
Did you appear with the worlds in your mouth,
Or being tied to the mortar
My mind is jumping to tell it outside,
I am having desire to tell and to tell,
Seeing your pleasant face, my shyness,
Is pushing me like a flower on to your feet.
From now , I do not have any world except you, Oh Venkadava,
Oh dancer who kept on your head the feather of peacock,
Oh God who along with friends who stole the butter,
From the rope stand and fought within yourselves,
And before any one knew it went and stood with your mother,
As if you do not know anything at all.
