Pragya Lal

K is for kangal, that look out for only thee
A is for Adiye, my heart’s call for ye
A is for Azhaga, a beauty I swirl and savour
P is for Po di! – go – but not too far away
[From] I, who would like us to brew and swa-ay

Kaapi is all that I can offer you
Kaapi is more than just a game for two
Two in love can drink it
Under the canopy of Bangalore trees or by Marina beach

But tastes as good if you sip it by yourself with Sinatra, Singh, or Vairamuthu
For Kaapi was brewed for me and Romance-u

K is for kangal, that look out for only thee
A is for Adiye, my heart’s call for ye
A is for Azhaga, a beauty I swirl and savour
P is for Po di! – go – but not too far away
[From] I, who would like us to brew and swa-ay

Kaapi is all that I can offer you
Kaapi is more than just a game for two
Two in love can drink it
Under the canopy of Bangalore trees or by Marina beach

But tastes as good if you sip it by yourself with Sinatra, Singh or Vairamuthu
For Kaapi was brewed for me and Romance-u
For Kaapi was brewed for me and Romance-u
For Kaapi was brewed for me and Romance-u

 

Quick notes: Kanngal: eyes; Azhaga: A beautiful man
