Nangelipoove Kunnolam Mele Onnayi Povande
O, little flower, we gotta go all the way up the hill together.
Changathivave Ninnodu Koode Kannayi Njalille
O, little friend, I am there with you, to guide you.

Cherunattu Pathakalil Kanavinte Mamalayil
In the narrow paths, on the hill of dreams,
Thalarade Nee Chuvaderve Thanalayi Njanarike
As you progress forward tirelessly, I am with you, To uphold and protect you.

Nangelipoove Kunnolam Mele Onnayi Povande
We have to travel all the way up the hill together, little flower.
Changathivave Ninnodu Koode Kannayi Njalille
I am with you, little buddy, to guide you.

Omane Manipaithale Idanenjile Midiye
O, dear child, the beat of my heart
Novilum Niravekidum Chiriyanu Neeyazhake
You are the slender smile that soothes my soul’s agony.

Kunju Kaladiyode Nee Kanaveridum Nimisham
As you climb up your dream with your tender feet
Nenjudukkile Mohathalam Unarnnidum Samayam
My desires bloom and fulfill

Mizhineerkanam Pozhiyunnu Njan Mazhapole En Makale
My tears sprinkle out like the rain, my dear
Nangelipoove, Ennomalvave
O little flower… O darling daughter…

Poovupol Viriyunnu Nee Athukandu Njanarike
As you blossom like a flower, I watch you by your side
Katupole Ninakku Poonthanaleki Ninakkarike
I shall grace you a fond shade like a breeze

Nee Kothichathupole Ninnile Asha Poovidare
As the desires of your heart blossom
Neela Neela Nilavupol Mukhamonnu Minnidave
As your little face shines, like the blue moonlight
Nirayunnithen Manamakeyum Uyirinte Kanmaniye
My heart fills with delight, O the virtue of my life
