La Ramba

The tamil version of the legendary 'La Bamba' song. Created in memory of the members of Mudrock, a now-extinct band, best remembered for its sellout 'Live at Lal Bagh' concert.

NOTE: For those who dunno tamil, the song 'La Ramba' is as profound as the original. The song is about the city of Chennai sung for the benefit of an out-of-towner named Pazhanipathi. To help you get a drift of how the song must be sung, i'll post the Ritchie Valens' version first. And then my tam take.

LA BAMBA (the Spanish version)
Para bailar la bamba
Para bailar la bamba
Se necesita una poca de gracia
Una poca de gracia para mi para ti
Arriba y arriba
Y arriba y arriba por ti sere
Por ti sere
Por ti sere
Yo no soy marinero
Yo no soy marinero
Soy capitan
Soy capitan
Soy capitan
Bamba bamba
Bamba bamba
Bamba bamba
Para bailar la bamba
Para bailar la bamba, se necesita una poca de gracia
Una poca de gracia para mi para ti
Arriba, arriba

Para bailar la bamba
Para bailar la bamba
Se necesita una poca de gracia
Una poca de gracia para mi para ti
Arriba y arriba
Y arriba y arriba, por ti sere
Por ti sere
Por ti sere
Bamba bamba
Bamba bamba
Bamba bamba


LA RAMBA (the Tamil version)
Paaru laila, nila, ramba
Paaru styla nee namba
Chennai city, innoru peru madras ya
Innoru peru madras ya, pazhanipathi
Ada vaya nee vaaya
Anivaaya onga aaya, Pothys Selai
Pothys Selai
Pothys Selai
Ensoy seyya marina po
Ensoy seyya marina po
Orey happy dhaan
Kudi kaapi dhaan
Ramba Ramba
Ramba Ramba
Ramba Ramba
Paaru laila, nila, ramba
Paaru styla nee namba, Chennai city, innoru peru madras ya
Innoru peru madras ya, pazhanipathi
Ada vaya nee vaaya

Paaru laila, nila, ramba
Paaru styla nee namba
Chennai city, Innoru peru madras ya
Innoru peru madras ya, pazhanipathi
Ada vaya nee vaaya
Anivaaya onga aaya, Pothys selai
Pothys selai
Pothys selai
Ramba Ramba
Ramba Ramba
Ramba Ramba
