I would be very thankful if I could get the word-to-word meaning of the Kannada song "Sundara Muruthi Mukhya Prana" by Purandaradasa. The youtube link below for the song also has a preceding viruttam/sloka for which I would appreciate the lyrics AND meaning.

(yatra yatra raghunAtha kIrtanam... Hanuman will always be present when devotees chant Rama's name. This song celebrates this faith. When the greatest of Rama Bhaktas, Hanuman, comes, celestial musicians and devotees like Narada and Tumburu happily join in. And the bhajana paddhati includes singing, dancing, expressing the joy by embracing other devotees in a glorious celebration! )

Nice interpretation
I think it is * kaNakAlanduge*
*kaNa kAlu* is the region between the knee and the foot.
That is *shin*

Fair enough. I was only looking at the linked lyrics, which vary from the YouTube words a bit. The words in YT are:
kaNakAlanduge... kuNikuNidADuta
