Repertoire

Viralgali thaandi valarndhadahi kandu;
nagan galai naamum narukuvadhu undhu;
Idhil yenna paavam, yedharku indha sogam

and

nilavinai nambi iravugal illai;
vilakugal kaatum velichatthin yellai;
oru vaasal moodi, maru vaasal veipan iraivan

I was listening to this interesting song from the movie "Marupadiyum". Sung by (who else? ) SPB and scored by (huh?) "God" Illayaraja.

What was more ironical is that the lyricist "Vaali" has given such gems of lyrics and also the utterly crass song "Samanjadhu Yeppadi?" from the movie "Indhu" !! Does that show Vaali's repertoire ?

PS: No translation from Tamil to English as the essence of the lyrics would be lost if i do so.
