Meaning:
We are singing of the rare great Flame That has no beginning and no end. In spite of listening to it, Oh the girl with sword like sharp beautiful eye, you still have not opened your eyes(sleeping). Is your ear senseless ? On hearing the praise of the perfect feet of the Greatest dEva the sound of praise, which arises at the start of the street, one has forgotten herself weeping and weeping ! You as if nothing happened are coolly turning about enjoying the soft flowers spread on the bed, what a pity what a pity !! Is this behavior becoming of you, my dear friend ?!

The girl on the bed:
Oh slim beautiful girls!, How can you talk (mock) like this ?
The friends:
Is it the place to play mocking each others ? Who are we ? The Luminous, the One in the world of shivam, the Lord of small abode at thillai, who blesses us giving His Floral Feet, for praising which, even the celestial elements (viNNOrkaL) are scared of their qualification, to that Lord we are lovers.

Oh the people with the ten great characters, the people committed to the Oldest feet of the Lord, my friends !! I being new slave, is it wrong if you correct my bad behaviors and take me to the right path ?!
The friends:
Oh dear, don't we know your love ? Don't the people of beautiful heart sing our Shiva ? Come let us get those (good qualities).

Oh shivA !!" But still you never felt it ! never felt !! Oh nice plaited girl, Is this your quality !!

Oh girl ! Is it a play ? For many celestials (amarar) He is not even thinkable. The One with bounteous wealth. On hearing His symbols you would open your mouth saying "shiva".

Still are you sleeping ? You are lying like the crude hearted females. How powerful is this sleep !!

Is this the way of loving the One with the disc weapon in His hand ? One who stood beyond the deluge, Him, who shares the body with the slim lady (umA) (it could also be interpreted as the Partner of poor), let us sing !

What is the way to sing of Him ?!"

Meaning:
Now and then she utters, "My Lord". Thus her mouth never relents in praising of the glory of our Lord ! Rejoicing in the thought of the Lord, she cries relentlessly wetting the eyes. She does not return to this world, nor bow down to the celestial powers. To the One Emperor, she becomes mad like this. Let us sing of the Proficient One, who takes slaves like this. Oh girls with ornament dressed breasts, let us swim in the floral stream and sing of the golden feet of that Lord to our hearts content.
