Lakshman-ji sent me the lyrics in tamizh script, and I have tried to split the words for the first 2 caraNams as best as I can. I think this makes sense, but am open to alternate explanations and splits of words.

Despite my best efforts, the last caraNam with the composer's mudra is beyond me - particularly the last 2 lines; none of the word splits I have tried make any sense to me...I have just translated the fist 2 lines of this caraNam.

Smt. Shobana Vignesh (of Mahanadi fame) has sung the last caraNam, but she sings it so fast, I am not able to make out the words....(she also leaves out the word sadRSa from the anupallavi).

pallavi
mAmayUramIdilERi vA ennai rakshikka

Please come (vA) astride (mIdil ERi) a mighty (mA) peacock (mayUram) to protect (rakshikka) me (ennai).

anupallavi
kAmitArtha phala dAyaka suravara svAminAtha marakata Saila sadRSa

Oh svAminAtha, who grants (dAyaka) desired (kAmitArtha) results (phala), exellent (vara) among the gods (sura), who looks like (sadRSa) an emerald (marakata) mountain (Saila) [1]!

caraNam 1
nAradAdiyOrgaL isai pADa arambai mAdar ArulAvu nEril naTamADa maRai munivar SIrinASi mozhi kURa nIpamuRu tArulAvu buyam EruvODilagu (mAmayUramIdilEri...)

As ascetics (yOgiyargaL) like nArada and others (nAradAdi) sing (isai pADa), and celestial maidens (arambai mAdar) move about elegantly (ArulAvu) and dance (naTamAda) in front/in person (nEril), and sages (munivar) well-versed in the vEdas (maRai) utter (kURa) blessings (ASi mozhi) of good fortune (SIrin), (please come astride a mighty peacock to protect me) with arms (buyam) that are resplendent (ilagu) as a bull (Eru) [2], like (uRu) a fully spread-out (ulAvu) oak (nIpam) tree (tAru) [3].

caraNam 2
pASa bhavamenu-mOsa valai tanaiye kaDandunadu pAdamalariNaiyE tudi seidunaiyE paNiyu-manadAsaiyu-magizh puri pUjaiyum dinam dinamE seyumpaDi aruL nEsamudan udava (mAmayUramIdilERi...)

(Please come astride a mighty peacock to protect me) to bless me (aruL) and help me (udava) with (uDan) love (nEsam) so that I may get past/escape (kaDandu) the treacherous (mOsa) net (valai tanai) called (enum) worldly (bhavam) attachment (pASa), and think of/meditate at (tudi seidu) just your feet alone (pAdamalariNaiyE) [4], and pay obeisance to (paNiyum) only you (unaiyE), and worship you (pUjaiyum seyyumpaDi) in a way that delights (magizh puri) my heart's (manadu) desires (Asaiyum) daily (dinam dinamE).

caraNam 3
gatikkum aDiyavar tudikka vaLar SIlA
cidambara bhAratikkiniya varamadikka aruL vElA.......

Oh principled one (SIlA) who flourishes (vaLar) as devotees (aDiyavar) offer worship (tudikka) to attain salvation (gatikkum)! Oh spear-wielder (vElA) who grants (aruL) a lot of (adikka) sweet (iniya) boons (varam) to the composer, (mIzhavAi) cidambara bhArati (bhAratikku)......

FOOTNOTES
[1] I am not aware of murugA being called marakata vaNNa; kRshNa yes, but, not murugA, so I wonder if marakata Saila means something else
[2] I think the likeness to the oak is to indicate the size of muruga's arms, and the [3] bull symbolizes strength
[4] pAdamalariNaiyE = pAda (foot) + malar (flower-like) + iNai (both)

The Marakatha shaila has to be linked to the Maa Mayura - the huge peacock like an emerald hill

Perfect !

வள்ளலார் அவர்கள் சிவ பெருமானை
"மதியுற விளங்கு மரகத மலையே
வதிதரு பேரொளி வச்சிர மலையே"

என்றெல்லாம் அழைக்கிறார்.

அதுபோலவே மழவை சிதம்பர பாரதி அவர்களும் இந்தப் பாடலில் "சுவாமிநாத மரகத சைல" என்று குறிக்கின்றார் !

Pl see:https://en.wikipedia.org>wiki>viralimalai.
Viralimalai links murugan shrine with kuravanji(பச்சை மலை பவள மலை ..) and peacock sanctuary.
அதிர்க்கும் இடம் என :அந்த இடமே அதிரும்படியாக
உதிக்கும் = தோன்றும் , வரும்
மயில்……..அணி = மயில் கூட்டங்கள்
மலை அதில் = அந்த மலையில்
குலவிய=களித்து விளையாடிய
திக்கு=மூழ்கி ,திளைத்து (தமிழ் பேரகராதி )ref திக்குமுக்காடி
மகிழ்புரி மகிழ செய்யும் ….(முருகன் )
Everyday, flocks of peacocks come to that hill and play and enjoy to such an extent that the place rocks and Muruga makes them immersed in happiness.
