Malayalam songs for lil one

These are a couple of nursery rhymes/songs that my son seems to love. By the way, they are in the language malayalam. (Disclaimer: I don’t think these are the complete versions.. Just the ones that we sing to our baby..)

Lil’ one used to love this song when he was 2 months old. I remember him laughing for the first time while we sang this song to him 😀

“Kunji-ammakk-anju makkal aane,
anjaaman omana kunju aane,
panjaara vittu nadannu kunju,
panjaara kunju-enna paeru vannu.

Kunji-ammakk-anju makkal aane,
anjaaman omana kunju aane,
panjaara vittu nadannu kunju,
panjaara kunju-enna paeru vannu.

Vanjiyil panjaara chaaku vachu,
thunjath-irunnu thuzhanju kunju,
inji kadichu rasichu kunju

Kunji-ammakk-anju makkal aane,
anjaaman omana kunju aane,
panjaara vittu nadannu kunju,
panjaara kunju-enna paeru vannu.”

You can hear this song at youtube.

He used to look into my eyes and lay when I used to sing Kannan thumbi from the movie “Kakkothikavile Appuppan Thadikal “to him..maybe that was because he had heard that a lot when he was in me.

“Kannam thumbi poramo,
ennodishtam koodaamo,
ninne koodathillello,
innenn ullil pookaalam.
Kaliyaadaamee…kilimara thanaloram..
kaliyaadaamee…kilimara thanaloram..

(kannam thumbi poramo…)

My grandmother and my son get along together so well..She sings this song to him and plays with him by rocking him to the left and the right and all around. He simply enjoys the movements!

“Chanjaad-unni, cherinjaad-unni, kuzhanjaad-unni nin-aadaadu
Paalada unde pazham nurukkunde paal paayasam unde nee aadaadu.
Chanjaad-unni, cherinjaad-unni, kuzhanjaad-unni nin-aadaadu
Paalada unde pazham nurukkunde paal paayasam unde nee aadaadu..
Paalada venda, pazham nurukkum venda, paayasa chorum vend-ammae
Paalada venda, pazham nurukkum venda, paayasa chorum vend-ammae
Palahaara pura thaakol thannaal paadume aadume ponnunni,
Amma than ponn unni..”

With this next rhyme, we sit him on our lap and teach him to clap his hands..My mom sang it to him when he used to just lie down too…

“Kai kottunni kai kottu
appam thinnaan kai kottu,
aattil kulikaan kai kottu,
kai kottunni kai kottu..”

This is a very famous rhyme about a child and a crow..

“Kaake kaake koodevide,
Kootinakathoru kunjundo,
Kunjinu theeta kodukkaanjaal,
Kunju kidannu karanjeedum.

Kaake kaake koodevide,
Kootinakathoru kunjundo,
Kunjinu theeta kodukkaanjaal,
Kunju kidannu karanjeedum.

Kaake kaake nee tharumo,
Ninnude kayyile neyappam..
Kaake kaake koodevide,
Kootinakathoru kunjundo,
Kunjinu theeta kodukkaanjaal,
Kunju kidannu karanjeedum.”

My grandparents know SO many many MANY childrens songs and lullabies..you can sit and listen to them for hours and hours as they entertain baby:)

“Omana thingal kidaavo,
Nalla komala thamara poovo.
Poovil niranja madhuvo,
Pari poornendu thante nilaavo.
Puthan pavizha kodiyo,
Cheru thathakal konjum mozhiyo.
Chanchaadi aadum mayilo,
Mridu panchamam paadum kayeelo.
Thullum ilavaan kidaavo
Shobha kollunnoranna kodiyo
Eeswaran thanna nidhiyo
Parameswari enthum kiliyo
Omana thinakl kidavo
Nalla komala thamara poovo..”

Well, what can I say.. there are more baby lullabies that the present generation including myself have forgotten and really really need our parents and grandparents to remind us of..
