Anile Anile Odi Vaa

Info

There seem to be a lot of different versions of this song, both from Sri Lanka and India. Here is just one of the ones I found.

Lyrics - Transliteration

(Folk song from Sri Lanka)

Anile anile odi vaa
Aḻaku anile odi vaa
Koyyā maram ēṟi vā
Kuṇṭu paḻam koṇṭu (kondu) vā

English Translation – Chipmunk Chipmunk, Come On

Anile anile odi vaa
Aḻaku anile odi vaa
Koyyā maram ēṟi vā
Kuṇṭu paḻam koṇṭu (kondu) vā

Tamil – அணிலே அணிலே ஓடி வா

அணிலே அணிலே ஓடிவா
அழகு அணிலே ஓடிவா
கொய்யாமரம் ஏறிவா
குண்டுப்பழம் கொண்டுவா

  1. Hi Beth! Thank you so much for this song! I ended up using it at the end of the year during AAPI heritage month. And, one of my students’ family is Sri Lankan. He told me that the translation is correct (amazing), but in the last measure it would be more accurate to the pronunciation as “kondu” rather than “-tu”.
