"Kaajal" makes the eye beautifl
Kavidhaikku poi azhagu
"Lies" make a poem beautiful
Avaraikku poo azhagu
Flowers are beautiful for the bean-plant.
Avarukku naan azhagu
I am beautiful for my man!

After the rain has stopped, a drop of water falling off a leaf is
Alai Meendu ponaalum Ponalum, Karai konda Nurai azhagu
After a wave recedes, the foam that reaches the shore is beautiful
Imai kottum vinmeengal, Iravodu thaan azhagu
The stars blinking their eyes look beautiful only in the night
Ilamaran kannukku, Eppodhum Naanazhagu
But I am beautiful in the eyes of the young man forever!
Anandha manjaththil, Avizhndhalum kuzhal azhagu
Even hair which gets dishevelled, when in bed, is beautiful
Adaiyala muththathil, Azhindhalum Pottazhagu
Even "Bindi" which gets erased, while kissing, is beautiful
Pennodu Kaadhal vandhaal, Pirai kooda perazhagu
Even the crescent moon, when in love with a girl, looks beautiful
Ennodu Nee irundhaal, Irul kooda Orazhagu
Even the darkness, when you are with me, is beautiful in a way.
