1. With a swan like Walk came to the marriage stage Aandal,
Who was like streak of lightning along with The jingling anklets,
Worn on her saffron like legs and with,
A pretty smile came to marry God Sreedaran.
2. That red eyed very pretty Vishnu who is Ranganatha,
Who s Ranga Raja, woke up from his sleep on a serpent,
And left the banks of river Cauvery and came to hold the pretty hands,
Of Kothai with great happiness and with hairs standing erect,
Along with auspicious music playing came as bridegroom, Laali, Laali
3. Taking incarnation as the daughter of Nammazhvaar on Pooram star,
Of the month of Aadi, that girl swung in the swing,
Swung for the first time, swung.
4. Lord Vishnu sat on the swing with four Vedas,
As the chains holding the swing and,
With Anantha the serpent as the plank of the swing,
And swung making the heart of the girl very happy,
Swing in the swing, Swing in the swing, Swing in the swing.
5. After choosing the pretty one of the north Mathura,
After praying the God of love, that Kothai of the great city of Maduvai,
Swung in the swing along with Lord Vishnu.
Swing in the swing, Swing in the swing
6. That girl who gave with song the garland she has worn,
With the killer of Madhu sitting wearing the garland she wore with joy
Swing the swing, swing the swing.
7. With the sound of Vedas reaching the sky,
With devas raining flowers from the sky,
See the great sight of Lord Rangamannar taking the hand of Kothai.
