Sathiyamai Cholgiren , idai kelai.

Chandira Bimba Mandahasi undan-

Chengaram chindai magizhndu piditha nalai-

Soppanathil Analum e prapancha madargalai-

Sugithu Nan Anaithahthillai, en tholal

Surasenan sudani Petta en sugumariye,

Suthu endru Ariyadennai Sugithu Alai

Para Paksha Kashtangalai Chumanthu Nane-

Bana Bhadran Sathruvai Jeyikka ponen-

Komalakara Kuyile, endan kudumba mane,

Kopam Kollamal ennai Koodadi En thene.

 

English translation

 

My heart of hearts,

Donít doubt me for a minute please,

I will tell you, all the truth,

Please hear this, oh darling mine.

My heart of hearts,

From the day , I held your hands,

Oh darling with a moon faced smile,

Even in dream , oh darling mine,

I have never held in my pleasing hands,

No lady of earth except thee. Oh darling mine

The daughter of son of Surasena,

I am innocent and plain, darling mine,

Hold me with you darling mine.

Carrying all thine doubts, darling mine,

I went to fight enemies of Bana Bhadra,

Hey, beautiful nightingale mine,

Hey, gazelle of family mine,

Leave this anger and become one with me, darling mine
