By Oothukadu Venkata Subba iyer
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Thalam: Thisrajathi triputa
Ariven, arinthen, yendru aayiram murai cholli,
Azhaithu Vadi poi.
Please go and tell him, "I know it", "I know of it"
And bring him here, oh friend.
Uri konda vennai kavarum,
Uthamar andro Kannan,
Oorukku arasan magan yenna cheithalum thaugumo?
Is not Krishna, the good person,
Who steals butter from the butter hangs.
Is it all right if the king's son does any thing to the town?
Vennai undirunthaal mattum Veeram migunthirukkum,
Mannai undirunthathale mandham migunthara andro?
Kannai kkavarnthu, innum karuthai kavarntha pinnum,
Thannayum maranthathu sariyalla endru cholli
If he had only eaten butter his valour would be greater,
And because he has also eaten mud, his laziness is greater?
After he has stolen our eye and after stealing our mind also,
It is not proper for him to forget himself and say "it is not proper".
