Namaskarams!
Thanks to Sri Madhavakannan for posting the wonderful song 
"kuRai onRum illai".  Ever since I heard this on tape, I have been 
singing this song in the Aurora Balaji temple.  I was corrected once
by a friend who is well versed in music on these lines:

kalinaaLuk iRangi kallilE iRangi
silaiyaaga kOilil niRkinRaay kEsavA!
.....> yaarum maRukkaadha malai appA!
.....> yaarum maRukkaadha malai appA!- un maarbil
.....> yenRum yezhundharuLum karuNai kadal annai
yenRum irundhida yEdhu kuRai enakku?
yenRum irundhida yEdhu kuRai enakku?


yAdum maRukkAdha malai appA!
yAdum maRukkAdha malai appA!  - un mArbil
yEdum tara niRkum karuNai kadal annai

[Makes sense either way!]

adiyEn,
kalyani Krishnamachari
