Cauvery Pilusthundi Kadali ra


Kaveri is calling
Come over Mother Deveri is calling
Come over Come over
Come over Kaveri is calling you
Come over One who gives milk like water
Like a just delivered mother She is on her knees
In front of soil If you have the heart to listen to her pain
Come running Kaveri is calling
Come over Mother Deveri is calling
Come over Mother who fed the stomach of Kannadigas
Mother who quenched the thirst of tamils Is now thirsty with moist eyes
Is now thirsty with moist eyes She was flowing like a garland around Srirangam
She did abhishekam for the six Lingams Just three months in a year she has a sweet
life Someone, someone come to her rescue She learnt sa re ga ma in thala kaveri
Offered sankeerthanas in thanjavur The voice that sang melodies on the waves
of the ocean Has gone silent
What shall we all do as our part Isn’t she the sibling of Godavari and Krishna
Aren’t we born as children to that mother The trouble she is facing
Won’t it come here tomorrow She is unable to walk
She is calling you for help She is stumbling
She is asking you for a breath What needs to be done is not any great sacrifice She asked you to plant a tree
And save every drop of water Kaveri is calling
Come over Mother Deveri is calling
Come over Kaveri is calling
Come over Mother Deveri is calling
Come over
