Thaazhampoo

This song is from the Malayalam movie Devaragam, too, just like the other one! However, I like this song a lot more. "Sisirakala" is just a very poetic description of sex. "Thaazhampoo" (which I translate as "The Falling Flower"), on the other hand, is a song that is actually much easier to understand and thus illustrates a much more agreeable theme: getting ready for a wedding.

You can listen to this beautiful song on my site (where it's probably botched by my horrible voice!) or on http://www.musicindiaonline.com/l/20/s/movie_name.3256/ (by clicking on "Thaazhampoo")

Falling flower with ruined hair,

Folding and wearing nine yards of sari,

Wearing a little bit of silver, ah! Wearing it on your nose,

Wearing a little bit of silver, wearing it on your nose,

Daughter, get ready! Daughter-in-law, get ready! (Repeat)

To keep your eyes from burning,

Spread some floral ink on your cheek! (Repeat)

Adorn yourself with a line of turmeric indicating your caste;

Wear fragrant flowers in your hair!

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, ah ah ah ah ah hah!

Falling flower with ruined hair,

Folding and wearing nine yards of sari,

Wearing a little bit of silver, ah! Wearing it on your nose,

Wearing a little bit of silver, wearing it on your nose,

Daughter, get ready! Daughter-in-law, get ready!

(Ah...)

Like the light inside the camphor lamp,

You will walk around [the lamp], 

    and a fresh smell must flow down. (Repeat)

Like the golden thamburu's sruthi,

Virtues should spread within you. 

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, ah ah ah ah ah hah!

Falling flower with ruined hair,

Folding and wearing nine yards of sari...

As the graceful lamp of the village,

When you [step into the threshold] with your right foot... (Repeat)

Long-living, happily married woman! On your lips,

Holy chants to the Goddess must blossom.

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, ah ah ah ah ah hah!

Falling flower with ruined hair,

Folding and wearing nine yards of sari,

Wearing a little bit of silver, (Wearing a little bit of silver!)

Wearing it on your nose, (Wearing it on your nose!)

Wearing a little bit of silver, wearing it on your nose,

Daughter, get ready! Daughter-in-law, get ready!
