Taka dhiku thakita thom endru aadina.

English Translation

 

Pallavi

 

Oh Kanna please come step by step with your little feet,

Come with the bells in your anklets to rule over me.

 

Charanam

 

1.When mother was churning butter in the home of Nanda,

Talking sweet words , with a beseeching , begging eyes,

Curling the lips lovingly and extending your hands,

You put on a tantrum and also danced and told,

I would leave you only if you give sufficient butter to break my hands.

 

2.With heaven wondering , earth getting charmed and mother becoming sad,

With your fame spreading in all directions, with ornaments worn in the body moving,

When you kept your feet on the gems decorated head of the snake,

To make him subdued you started dancing Ta kita Thom , Taka Takita Thom,

Taka dhiku thakita thom endru aadina.
