Nokki nokki nokki ninnu
Kaathu kaathu kaathu ninnu
[I stood there watching, watching and watching to see;
Waited, waited and waited to find out]
Manthaara poo viriyanathu enganaanennu
Manthaara poo viriyanathu eppozhaanennu
[how the mathaaram flower blooms
and when manthaaram flower blooms]
Nokki nokki nokki ninnu
Kaathu kaathu kaathu ninnu
[I stood there watching, watching and watching to see;
Waited, waited and waited to find out]
Manthaara poo viriyanathu enganaanennu
Manthaara poo viriyanathu eppozhaanennu
[how the mathaaram flower blooms
and when manthaaram flower blooms]
Thekkennam kaattinum ariyilla, uthraada thumbikkum ariyilla
Changaali praavinum ariyilla. Aarkkum ariyilla!
[The southern breeze doesn’t know, The dragonfly born in uthradam month doesn’t know
Neither does the dove. No one knows!]

Nokki nokki nokki ninnu
Kaathu kaathu kaathu ninnu
[I stood there watching, watching and watching to see;
Waited, waited and waited to find out]
Manthaara poo viriyanathu enganaanennu
Manthaara poo viriyanathu eppozhaanennu
[how the mathaaram flower blooms
and when manthaaram flower blooms]

Raavu urangana neratho?
Pakal thaer irangana neratho?
[Does it happen at night when everyone’s asleep?
Or when the day breaks?]
Kaattirikku kammal ittu naattu paathayorathu
Pokkuveyil thaen ozhukkana neratho?
Pokkuveyil thaen ozhukkana neratho?
[Or does it happen when the country roads get dotted with
the honey hued sunlight?
the honey hued sunlight?]
Poothatheppozho? Ithal neerthatheppozho?
Poothatheppozho? Ithal neerthatheppozho?
[When did it bloom? and spread its petals?
When did it bloom? and spread its petals?]
Aalilayum, paazhmulayum mindatha nerathu
Chingaara poo muttam nenjil virinju, poothu niranju
[When the banyan leaves and bamboo were silent,
a whole flower bed bloomed inside my heart and, spread out]

Nokki nokki nokki ninnu
Kaathu kaathu kaathu ninnu (ninnu ninnu ninnu..)
[I stood there watching, watching and watching to see;
Waited, waited and waited to find out ]

Poomalayude thaazhatho?
Mazha poovu chinnana paadatho?
[Does it happen in the valley of the beautiful hill?
Or on the paddy fields where rain showers?]
Aadi paadi kunungana kurumaali puzhakare
Naattu maina koodorukkana kombatho?
Naattu maina koodorukkana kombatho?
[On the banks of the mischievous swaying river,
does it happen on the tree branch where the native bird builds a nest?
does it happen on the tree branch where the native bird builds a nest?]
Poothathengaano? Ithal neerthathengaano?
Poothathengaano? Ithal neerthathengaano?
[Where did it bloom? and spread its petals?
Where did it bloom? and spread its petals?]
Aanmayilum poonkuyilum chellatha doorathu
Punnaara thoo motten nerkku virinju, poothu marinju
[Where the peacock and cuckoo doesn’t go,
an adorable flower bud bloomed beside me and swayed]

Nokki nokki nokki ninnu
Kaathu kaathu kaathu ninnu
[I stood there watching, watching and watching to see;
Waited, waited and waited to find out]
Manthaara poo viriyanathu enganaanennu
Manthaara poo viriyanathu eppozhaanennu
[how the mathaaram flower blooms
and when manthaaram flower blooms]
