Naan Yen Piranthen : Lyrics, meaning, translation (A R Rahman on Coke Studio @ MTV Season 3)


Poet Vaali's words comes to life when A R Rahman himself sings them on Coke Studio @ MTV S03E01. Though I found the tune very likeable from very first listen (due to touch of sound like Lucky Ali's songs). I didn't understand a single word, because the song being in Tamil. And that left me puzzled why everyone who understood the words, are in love with the song. As always, fellow Rahmaniac @madhavanrajan comes to rescue who was kind enough to post the translation on ARRFansGroup. Thanks to him, I am in love with this wonderful poem.


Pachcha karu yaavum paavakkaru alla
Neeyum naanum yaaru kuththam kora solla


All those fetuses are not sinned
Who are you and I
to find a fault in?


Poththal ulla moongilla saththamulla paattu varum

A hole in the bamboo stick
Brings out a good song


Kannangaru megam thaan
uyir vaazha payir vaazha mazhai kottuthey

Even the clouds turn dark and black
to bring the rain back
for survival of crops and
for survival of mankind!


Oru ooril oru gudisai
Nadhiyoram pachcha maram pala varisai
Kallamillaa Vellanthiyaa
Oorusanam Irunthathayya


A hut in a village
Green trees lined up by the river
And there lived people
that are Open and innocent...


Aariro....Aariro...Aaraariro...(Lullaby)

Aalangaaththu Oasaiyiley
Moththa sanam thookkaththiley
Boomi Romba Thoorathiley
Yaar Arivaar Kaaranaththa?
Yen Piranthaai? Yen Piranthaai? Yen Piranthaayo??


In the sound of the banyan tree
Everyone in deep sleep
Earth is so far away
And who would know the reason?
Why are you born?  Why are you born? Why are you born?


Naan yen piranthen?
Kan yen thiranthen?
Enakkey theriyaathey


Why am I born?
Why did I open my eyes?
I do not know


O! Iraiyoan padaippil
Yethuvum azhage
Un kann ariyaathey!


In God’s creations
Anything is beautiful and
Your eyes won’t know that!


Naan yen piranthen?
Kan yen thiranthen?
Enakkey theriyaathey...


Why am I born?
Why did I open my eyes?
I do not know...


Pachcha karu yaavum paavakkaru alla
Neeyum naanum yaaru kuththam kora solla

All those fetuses are not sinned
Who are you and I,
to find a fault in?


Poththal ulla moongilla saththamulla paattu varum

A hole in the bamboo stick
Brings out a good song


Kannangaru megam thaan
uyir vaazha payir vaazha mazhai kottuthey

Even the clouds turn dark and black
But they bring the rain back
For survival of crops!
For survival of mankind!!


Naan yen piranthen?
Kan yen thiranthen?
Enakkey theriyaathey...


Why am I born?
Why did I open my eyes?
I do not know...


Yaaro yaar arivaaro?
Yenna solvaaro sol...

Who would know?
What would they say?


Yaaro yaar arivaaro?
Yenna seiyvaaro sollu...sollu...sollu...


Who would know?
What would they do?


Naan yen piranthen?
Kan yen thiranthen?
Enakkey theriyaathey....


Why am I born?
Why did I open my eyes?
I do not know....
