In the Kuttanadan Farmlands, thithai thaka theithei tho – you little girl, thitithara thei thei – We need horns and drum beats –
O.. thithithara thithithai thithai thaka thei thom – In the kuttanadan farmlands, you little girl – we need horns and drum beats – O.. thithithara thithithai thithai thaka thei thei thom – We need people to welcome us, we need flags and banners-
when we arrive victorious-
O.. thithithara thithithai thithai thaka thei thei thom-
we would look like a swan with black wings-
like a horse that speeds-
O.. thithithara thithithai thithai thaka thei thei thom-
we wouldn’t know what’s to loose… thithai thaka thei thei thom-
we wont bend our head… thithira thei thei-
kaavalan boat is going to be victorious-
O.. thithithara thithithai thithai thaka thei thei thom.
