Thalaivar Pongal Song



Podhuvaaha en manasu thangon
Oru poattiyinnu vandhuputta singon
Unmaya solvaen nallatha seiven

Vandhaendaa paal kaaraen

Pasumaatta paththi paada poaraen
Oru paattu katti aada poaraen
Pullu kuduththaa paalu kudukkum

Hey Paadhi pulla porakkuthappaaa
Pasumbaala thai paala nambiiii
