Annamayya Keerthana – Musina Mutyala Kele Lyrics in English
musina mutyala kele moragulu
aśala cittani kele alavokalu ||
kanduleni momuna kele kasturi
cindu ni koppuna kele cemantulu |
mandayanamuna kele mattela motalu
gandhamele paipai kammani ni meniki ||
bharapu gubbala kele payyeda ni
birapu jupula kele pedamomu |
jirala bhujala kele cematalu ni
goranta golla kele konavandlu ||
muddula matala kele mudamulu ni
yaddapu jekkula kele araviri |
voddikamatala kele vurpulu niku
naddamele tiru venkatadrisu gudi ||
Annamayya Keerthana – Musina Mutyala Kele Meaning
Why do you polish the new pearls enclosed in a shell? Why does your mind bother about simple things?
Why do you use kasturi (a perfume) for an unblemished face? Why do you decorate curly tresses with ornaments? Why does one walking gently require foot-rings? Does a naturally fragrant body require sandalwood perfume?
Why is an apron on heavy bosom? Why do you turn your face, hiding beautiful looks? Why are there sweat drops on your shoulders? Why do you sharpen your beautiful, rosy nails?
Why are you happy with just sweet words? Why are there blossoming flowers near your mirror-like cheeks? Why sigh heavily for His comforting words? Why do you want a mirror when you are with the lord of Venkatadri?
