Song Lyrics:

Vaanga Boss-u
Idhaan Madras-u
Seval Koovum Sattham Kaettaa
Vedikkum Tappaasu!

Kanna Potthikko,
Patthu Ennikko,
Joottu Vittu
Oora Sutthi Selfie Eduthukko

Konja Nanjam Kaatthadikkum
Pudichu Vechukko
Color Coloraa Kodi Parakkum
Kizhichu Thechikko

Sandhukkulla Sindhu Kekudhaa?
Sandhosham Etti Paakkudhaa?


Pudichaa Cut Out-u
Pudikkalainna Get Out-u
Madras Song-u Idhu
Marubadiyum Repeat u

Pudichaa Cut Out-u
Pudikkalainna Get Out-u
Munnoothi Ezhuvathanju
Aanaalum Not Out-u
