Azhage azhage edhuvum azhage
anbin vizhiyil ellaam azhage
mazhai mattumaa azhagu
sudum veyil kooda oru azhagu
malar mattumaa azhagu
vizhum ilai kooda oru azhagu

Graceful, anything is!
Through eyes of love, everything seems beautiful
Is only rain beautiful?
Scorching heat is indeed beautiful
Is only a blooming flower beautiful?
A leaf that drops is also beautiful

punnagai veesidum paarvaigal azhagu
vaarthaigal theergayil mounangal azhagu
nanmaikku sollidum poigalum azhagu
unmaiyil adhuthaan meiyaai azhagu

Beautiful,a look that smiles
Beautiful, the silence that follows loss of words
Beautiful, lies uttered for goodness sake
Beautiful, such lies are, truly! 

kuyil isai adhu paadida
swara varisaigal thevayaa
mayil nadanangal aadida
jadhi oligalum thevayaa

To sing, does Koel need notes?
To dance, does peacock need patterns?

nadhi nadandhu sendrida
vazhi thunaithaan thevayaa
kadal alai athu pesida
mozhi ilakanam thevayaa

To flow along, does river need an escort?
To speak out, do waves need grammar?

iyarkkaiyodu inaindhaal
ulagam muzhudhum azhagu
kavalai yaavum marandhaal
indha vaazhkai muzhudhum azhagu
azhage azhage edhuvum azhage

Unite with nature, world becomes beautiful
Forget worries, life becomes beautiful

idhayam oru oonjale
idam valam adhu aadidum
inbathil adhu tholaindhidum
thunbathil adhu moolgidum

Heart, a swing, goes left and right
It gets lost in happiness & immersed in plight

nadandhadhai naam naalume
ninaipadhil porul illaye
nadapathai naam enninaal
adhiavida uyarvillaye

To think of past, makes no sense
To think of future, gives more essence

pookkum poovil veesum
vaasam enna azhagu
adhayum thaandi veesum
nam nesam romba azhagu

Fragrance of flowers that wafts, how beautiful!
Our love that wafts around, much more beautiful!!

azhage azhage edhuvum azhage
anbin vizhiyil ellaam azhage
mazhai mattumaa azhagu
sudum veyil kooda oru azhagu
malar mattumaa azhagu
vizhum ilai kooda oru azhagu

Graceful,anything is!

Through eyes of love, everything seems beautiful

Is only fall of rain beautiful?

Scorching heat is indeed beautiful
Is only a blooming flower beautiful?
The leaf that drops is also beautiful

punnagai veesidum paarvaigal azhagu
vaarthaigal theergayil mounangal azhagu
nanmaikku sollidum poigalum azhagu
unmaiyil adhuthaan meiyaai azhagu

Beautiful, a look that smiles
Beautiful, the silence that follows loss of words
Beautiful, lies uttered for goodness sake
Beautiful, such lies are, truly!
