iratham arunthi uRum karum kayal poruthu sivanthu kuvinthidum padi ithaviya unthi enum thadam thanil uRa mUzhki: imbibing the saliva that gushes from their mouth, making their twin eyes, black as the fish, converge and turn red, drowning in the pond of their blissful belly,
iniyathu or inpam viLainthu aLainthu poy vanithaiyar thangaL marungi iNangiya iLamai kizham padum mun patham peRa uNarvEnO: enjoying the sweet experience of exhilaration, I am seeing that my youth, which indulged in those untruthful whores, is fading away and growing old; at least, now, will I be able to realise the method of attaining Your hallowed feet, Oh Lord?

pakadi ilangai kalanga am ponin makuda siram thasamum thuNinthu ezhu padiyum nadunga vizhum panam pazham enavAkum marutham uthaintha mukunthan anpuRu maruka: LankA, the kingdom of the treacherous demon RAvaNan; shattering that LankA and knocking down his ten heads adorned with beautiful golden crowns, He (RAmA) wielded an arrow petrifying the seven worlds and felling the heads like palm fruits; coming as KrishNa, He uprooted the marutha trees; and You are the dear nephew of that Lord VishNu!
kuvinthu malarntha pangaya vayaliyil ampu avizh saNpakam periya virAli malaiyil viLangiya kantha: You are seated in VayalUr where lotus buds blossom abundantly and also in VirAlimalai* where the fragrant shanbaga flowers flourish, Oh Lord!
