Here you go. I have corrected the lyrics based on what I heard from an audio version of the song. As far as I can tell, this is a synopsis of tirumurugATRupaDai (திருமுருகாற்றுபடை) of the tamil poet exemplar, Nakkerar. It gives brief descriptions of the 6 paDai vIDu or divine abodes of Muruga. Here is what I make of the song. Words in [] are implied and not explicitly stated in the lyrics. Corrections welcome!

aRupaDai vIDu koNDa tirumurugA
tirumurugATRu paDai tanilE varum murugA
pATTuDai talaivan enRu unnai vaittEn unnai
pADi tozhuvadarkE ennai vaittEn

Oh divine murugA (tiru murugA) [1], who has occupied (koNDa) six (aRu) temples/abodes, also known as battle fields (paDai vIDu) [2]! murugA who appears (varum) in (tanilE) in the literary work called ‘tirumurugATRupaDai’ [3]! I have you (unnai vaittEn – kept you) as (enRu) the hero/lord (talaivan) of that composition/song/paean [of praise] (pATTuDai), while I have myself (ennai vaittEn) only to sing (pADi) [your praises] and worship (tozhuvadarkE) you (unnai).

vENDiya mAmpazhattai gaNapatikkE
anda veLLi panitalaiyar koDuttadarku
ANDiyin kOlamuTRu malai mIdu
nI amarnda pazhani oru paDai vIDu

[Because] that (anda) silver/white-haired [man] (veLLi panitalaiyar) [4] gave (koDuttadarku) the mango fruit (mAmpazhattai) that [you] desired/wanted (vENDiya) to gaNapati alone (gaNapatikkE), the mountain/hill (malai) on top of (mIdu) which you (nI) settled down (amarndu) in pazhani, assuming (uTRu) the garb (kOlam) of a mendicant (ANDiyin) is one (oru) of your ‘paDai vIDu’s.

oru perum tattuvattin sAreDuttu
nalla Om enum mandirattin poruL uRaittu
tandaiku upadEsam seida malai
engaL tamizh tirunADu kaNDa svAmimalai

The mountain (malai) on which [you] instructed (upadEsam seida) [your] father (tandaiku) by explaining (uRaittu) the significance (poruL) of the great (nalla) invocatory sound/hymn (mandirattin), OM (Om ennum) after taking (eDuttu) the essence (sAru) of a (oru) very powerful (perum) philosophy (tattuvam), is svAmimalai, experienced/revered (kaNDa) in our (engaL) divine (tiru) country (nADu) of the Tamil people (tamizh).

dEvar paDai talaimai poRuppeDuttu
tOLgaL tinaveDuttu sUran uDal kizhittu
kOvil koNDE amarnda oru vIDu
kaDal konjum sendUriluLLa paDai vIDu

Your residence (oru vIDu) in a temple (kOvil) where you are enshrined (koNDE) after you accepted/took (eDuttu) the responsibility (poRuppu) of the leadership (talaimai) of the army (paDai) of the gods (dEvar), and tore (tinaveDuttu) the shoulders (tOLgaL) and split (kizhittu) the body (uDal) of the demon, sUrapadman (sUran), is [another] one of your [divine] abodes (paDai vIDu) in Tiruccendur (sendUriluLLa), a town caressed (konjum) by the ocean (kaDal).

kuRunagai deivAnai malarODu
undan kulamagaLAga varum ninaivODu
tirumaNa kOlam koNDa oru vIDu vaNNa
tiruparankunRamenum paDai vIDu

The residence (oru vIDu) where you appear (koNDa) in the garb (kOlam) of a bridegroom (tirumaNa) [5] along with (ODu) the [beautiful], smiling (kuRunagai), flower-like (malar) Devasena (deivAnai) [6] with thoughts (varum ninaivODu) of making her your (undan) bride (kulamagaLAga) [7, 8] is the abode (paDai vIDu) of the colorful (vaNNa) Tiruparankunram (tiruparankunRamenum).

dEvar kuRai tavirttu sinam taNindu
vaLLi teLLu tamizh kuRatti-tanai maNandu
kAval puriyavenRu amarnda malai
engal kanni tamizhar tiruttaNigai malai

[After] the grievances (kuRai) of the gods (dEvar) were dispelled (tavirttu), [your] anger (sinam) appeased (taNindu), and [you] married (maNandu) Valli (vaLLi tanai), a gypsy (kuRatti) [who spoke] refined (teLLu) tamizh [9], the mountain (malai) you took up residence (amarnda) to provide (puriyavenRu) protection (kAval) is our (engaL) ever-fresh/virginal (kanni) mountain/hill (malai) of the Tamil people (tamizhar), Tiruttani (tiruttaNigai).

kaLLamillAmal varum aDiyavarku
nalla kATSi tandu kandan karunai tandu
vaLLi deivAnaiyuDan amar sOlai
tanga mayil viLaiyADum pazhamudirsOlai

The grove (sOlai) where [he] resides (amar) with (uDan) Valli (vaLLi) and Devasena (dEvAnai), giving/granting (tandu) an exemplary (nalla) vision (kATSi) [of himself], and his (murugan/kandan’s) compassion (karuNai) to guile-less (kalamillAmal) devotees (aDiyavarkku) who come (varum), the place where golden (tanga) peacocks (mayil) cavort (viLaiyADum), is Pazhamudircholai (pazhamudirsOlai), [yet another paDai vIDu] [10].

FOOTNOTES
[1] tiru is an honorific - SrImAn in samskRtam
[2] paDai = army/hordes; vIDu = home
[3] ATRupaDai, as I understand it, is a genre of tamil poetry, and this particular one (by Nakeerar) is on the divine muruga
[4] I think this 'silver/white haired man' is Siva - I do not think nArada who brought the mango is white-haired
[5] tirumaNa kOlam literally means, 'wedding garb' - so, it could apply to both the bride and the groom, and has to interpreted contextually
[6] dEvasEna, the adopted daughter of indra, was very close to his elephant, airAvata, which is why I believe she is also known as dEvAnai/dEvayAnai (Anai/yAnai = elephant in tamizh), or dEvakunjari (kunjara = elephant in saMskRtam)
[7] kulamagaL literally means 'a woman of (a particular) family'
[8] muruga morphs from dEva sEnApati (leader of the army of the gods) in Tiruccendur to dEvasEnA pati (husband of dEvasEnA/dEvayAnai/deivAnai) in Tiruparangkunram
[9] Of vaLLi, Mahakavi Subramania Bharati said, 'sollinai tEnil kuzhaitturaippAL' - so vaLLi and sweet, refined tamizh are intricately linked, according to tamizh legend
[10] Some believe that pazhamudirsOlai is not one of the six paDai vIDu, and the sixth is actually the murugan temple in Sri Lanka (in Kandi Kadirkamam)
