Chithram Film -Eeran megham lyrics
Eeran megham poovum konde
Poojakkayi kshethrathil pokumbol
Poongattum sopaanam paadumbol
Pookkari ninne kandu njaan [Eeran]
Aa. Aa. Aa. Aa….. aa..
Mazhakaathu kazhiyunna manasinte vezhambal
Oru maari mukiline pranayichupoyi
Ponnum minnum ninne aniyikkum njaan
Aa. Aa. Aa. Aa…. aa..
Vaanidam mangalam aalapikke
Omane ninne njaan swanthamakkum [Eeran]
venmekha hamsangal thozhuthuvalam vachu
Sindooram vaangunna ee sandhyayil
Nettiyil chandanavum chaarthi nee anayumbol
Mutham kondu kuricharthikkum njaan
Aa. Aa. Aa. Aa…. aa..
Velikku chooduvaan poo porathe
Maanathum pichakapoo virinju [Eeran]
