Malayalam Movie : Rosie (1965)
Music : Job
Lyrics: P Bhaskaran
Singer : K J Yesudas
Cover : Krishnadas P
The same song was later adopted after 44 years in another Malayalam movie viz., Loud speaker in 2009 and it was sung by KJY’s son, Vijay Yesudas.
A rough translation of the lyrics is given below:
The days, water was waist-high at the lily-ghat;
And together we rowed the small boat;
And our hearts were full of tender-coconut water of Love.
Lotus flower, you saw far away and longed for;
I swam down and plucked it for you;
When I brought the plucked lotus for you,
Oh girl, I saw on your cheeks, yet another lotus bunch
Forest has flowered, the blue berries have ripen,
Still hasn’t yet the time come for holding my hand?
Oh parrot, who sang a humming on that day,
Why are you not arriving into my empty nest?
