Yen anbaana Ranganathan Thatha vukku kanakaabishegam vaazhthukkal!

Yen pirappu mudhal umadhu maraivu naal varai,
Ummudanum Jaya Paati udanum pukaipadangal irukiradhu.
Andha naatkalil ungaludan pazhagum baagiyam kidaithadhu.

Aanal naatkal oda oda, thangum idam maara maara,
Ummudan pazhaga neram kidaikavillai ida matram vidavillai.
Kaalangal oda, yen valarum paruvathil, palli vidumurai naatkalil,
Chennayil sila natkal Thiruvaanmiyuril thanguvom.

Thatha, yen manadhil nizhaladum sambhavam koorinaal mel irundhu sirikka maateerey?
Veetil mudhal arayil neer narkaliyil amarndhu,
Thayir kuppiyai kulikki kulukki vennai yedukka muyarchiththa kaatchi,
Yen manadhil pasumayaai padhindhu vittadhu.

Ungalin Sadhabhishegathil kalandhu kollum baagiyam petren.
Thaangalidathil irundhum Paati idathil irundhum aasirvaadham petren.
Andha baagiyathai naan mattum peraamal,
Ranganathan kudumbathai saarndha anaivarum magzhdhu petrom.

Idharkum mel sandhosham aliththa naatkal yedhu?
Yennudaya irandu thathavum, irandu paatiyum,
Yengal udan andha moondru maadhangal Australiavil irundha naatkal!

Chennai dhooosiyilum pugayilum udal baadhiththu yeppozhudhum thumbum (sneezing) thaangal,
Yengaludan Australiavil Lychee yum vidha vidha maaga ice cream unda piragum,
Oru thummallum indri, udal nalathudan irundha andha arpudha naatkal manadil nizhaladugiradhu.

Andha moondru maadhangal ummidam katravai pala,
Ummudan illamal naan izhandhavai yethanai thatha? Allavugal dhan undo?
Aanal yen thandai thaayin ozhukka karanam purindha tharunam adhu.
Sirappana pengal pillaigal ulagirkku eeandhu petra perai adaindha yenadhuramai thatha.

Cheettatam, paatu potti, nadanam yendru vidha vidhamaana kalaigalil pozhudhu pokki,
Rasithu kondu irukkum thathavai naan andha moondru maadam mattum thaan parthen.
Yen kuzhandai paruvathil ungaludan adhigam irukka mudiyadha yekkamo yennamo,
Andha moondru maadhangal yen manadil aazhamaaga padhindhu vittadhu.

Andha naalil thatha thatha yendru yendrum sutri sutri vara bhayam yenakkillai
Indru sutri vara naan ninaithaalum neeaar ulagil illai
Aanal yen manadhil ullaai thatha.

Thatha, garvam kolvadhu thavaru yengiraargal,
Yensaivadhu? Mudiyavillai!
Ranganathan Thathavin pethi yenbadhil garvam kolgireney!


Yen naatiyamum, paadalum virumbi virumbi ketta andha thathavukku,
Ungaludan adhigapadiyaaga neram kaalam selutha mudiyaadha,
Indha pethiyin manamaarndha mannippayum, anbayum, paasathayum yettru,
Kaalam muzhuvadhum naan nal seyalgal mattum seiyya ungal anbana aasigal pozhiya vendugiren.

Thangalin moondravadhu pethi
