Poraale Ponnuthayi

Poraale Ponnuthayi

Film: Karuthamma

Singers:

There goes ponnuthayi (name, refers to karuthamma here)

pola polavenru kannner vittu

shedding loads of tears

Paal peeichum maatai vittu

leaving the cow which "showers" milk

Panjaarathu kozhiya vittu

Leaving the hen from the farm

poraale potta pullai oorai vittu

the girl leaves the village...

Saamandhi poo-vaa

Is she a "saamandhi" (crysanthemum) flower

Oomatham poo-va?

Is she a "oomatham" flower (a weed)

Karuthamma endha poovamma

What flower is she?

anjaaru seemai, ullooril aenga...

With five-six villages longing for her,

podhi maatu vandi mela pottu vecha moottai pola...

like the sacks piled up on a bullock-cart...

poraale ponnuthaayi....

There goes ponnuthaayi....


nee vehca paasam, nee sonna nesam

The love that you had, the affection that you showed

kadaisiyil oomaiyum oomaiyum pesiya baashai adi

It finally became the language spoken by two mutes (not communicated!)

Thekkathi kaathu, thesai maari veesa

The eastern wind changes direction

onnaana meni ???? odudhadi

???????????????????????

usurulla naaku onnu vaadudhadi

An "alive" toungue longs

kadaisiyil saamikku nerndhadhu sadhikku aanadhadi

Finally, what was dedicated to the God, came to the people.

nenju kuzhi kaanji nedungaalam aachu

Long time since my heart became dry

oru uyir veetukkum kaattukkum koottukkul izhukkudhamma

One life is tangled between house, forest and the body

semicha kaasu sellaama pochu,

The money which we saved, became worthless

solladha sollil bhaaram amma

The words unsaid are a big burden

sothukkum sondhathukkum dhooram ammaa dhooram amma

Distanced from food and relations

Poru poru, ezhaikkum vaazhaikkum nalaikku nanmai ammaa

Just wait, for the poor and the plantain, tomorrow (the future) will be better.
