Kolussu Thenni Thenni

(Translation on request for GU)
A catchy dance song from the movie Cousins.

To listen to the song, click play:

Kinnaara chembaka chandrikaye, manimandaara maamala keri vaa
Varaathe vannoru tharakaye paninilavil nin azhaku aerumo?, oo hoy
[Hey sweet flowery moon, come up on this beautiful mountain
Hey hesitant star, are’t you more pretty in this moonlight?]

Thanaku thana…

Kolussu thenni thenni, valakal konji konji, kadhakal neythu vanna poonkaatte
Kuliru kammalittu, kavilil onnu thottu, kunungi koodi kaliyaadamo?
[With shaking anklets and jingling bangles, hey beautiful breeze, who came weaving stories
will you present me with chilly earrings, caress my face and come to play with shyness?]

Damaakku damaakku damaakku dama dumdum dama dumdum
Damakku damakku damakku dama dumdum dama dumdum
Dama dumdum dama dumdum

Kinnaara chembaka chandrikaye, manimandaara maamala keri vaa
Varaathe vannoru tharakaye paninilavil nin azhaku aerumo?, oo hoy
[Hey sweet flowery moon, come up on this beautiful mountain
Hey hesitant star, are’t you more pretty in this moonlight?]

Kinaakoottil, nira deepangal
Ee kilikalum kalikalum dithlangu tagu tha… ee thirakalum chirikalum dithlangu tagu tha
[In a nest of dreams, lamps fill in
and these birds and activities…these waves and laughs]
Kunnollam…aa… kinnaaram…aa…
Vinnollam…aa… punnaaram…aa..
[There is a mountain of sweet nothings being said
and there is pampering as high as the sky]
Paalu maname, nirav aakum nirame
Ee kulirmathi malarukal oru nira pala nira viriyum oru azhakile madhumaya nimisham itha
[Hey the one which smells of milk (innocent), hey the color which fills me
Here now is the sweet moment of the beauty where rows of these pleasantly chilly flowers blossom in the moonlight]
Aa…

Damaakku damaakku damaakku dama dumdum dama dumdum
Damakku damakku damakku dama dumdum dama dumdum
Dama dumdum dama dumdum

Kolussu thenni thenni valakal konji konji kadhakal neythu vanna poonkaatte
Kuliru kammalittu kavilil onnu thottu kunungi koodi kaliyaadamo?
[With shaking anklets and jingling bangles, hey beautiful breeze, who came weaving stories
will you present me with chilly earrings, caress my face and come to play with shyness?]

oy oy…

Aa.. nilaa penne, kadam veno
ee valakalum thalakalum? dithlangu tagu tha, kuda manikalum kuru mozhikalum? dithlangu tagu tha
[Hey moon girl, do you want to lend
these bangles and anklets? … tassels and crooning sounds?]
Aaraarum (aaraarum) kaanathe (kaanathe)
Aarodum (aarodum) mindaathe (mindaathe)
[Without anyone watching,
without talking to anyone]
Poru thaniye, thanal aakum uyire
Ee kurunira thazhukum oru ilaveyil alakalil nirayum oru anupama laharithan maduram itha
[come alone, hey life who shelters me
Here now is the sweetness of beautiful intoxication filling in these waves of sunlight which caresses the curls]

Dam dam damaakku damaakku damaakku dama dumdum dama dumdum
Dama dama dama dama dama dama dama dumdum dama dumdum
dama dumdum dama dumdum

Kolussu thenni thenni valakal konji konji kadhakal neythu vanna poonkaatte
Kuliru kammalittu kavilil onnu thottu kunungi koodi kaliyaadamo?
[With shaking anklets and jingling bangles, hey beautiful breeze, who came weaving stories
will you present me with chilly earrings, caress my face and come to play with shyness?]

Tara tara..
