Inikka , inikka paduven
Inikka, inikka paduven Muruga , naan,
Inba thamizhil anbudan unnai naan
Ninaikka , ninaikka panikkum kangal,
Nimalaa , unnaye pothi pangal
Padam kaanben pangaya poongavil,
Padi magizhven painthamizh paavil,
Nadane , thiru nellai kalil,
Nama rasa then kalande naavil.
I would sing about you with love in sweet Tamil,
Sweetly , sweetly , Oh Lord Muruga.
My eyes become wet when I thin k, think about you,
Oh pure one , I would sing songs that praise you.
I would see your feet in the lotus garden,
I would sing and enjoy in pure tamil poems,
Oh Lord , in the feet of thiruneveli,
I would mix the sweet honey of your names.
