Here is the song. Someone else may provide the meaning.

Pratibha, I assume you need word-to-word meanings since you've posted this in the nATyam thread. Here goes:

pallavi
innam en manam ariyAdavar pOla irundiDal nyAyamA yAdava mAdhavA


Oh husband (dhavA) of lakshmI (mA), the scion of the yAdava race (yAdavA)! Is it appropriate/fair (nyAyamA) for you to behave (irundiDal) like (pOla) someone who is unaware (ariyAdavar) of my (en) heart's (manam) desires, especially after all that has occurred (innam)?

anupallavi
munnam payinradO in-nATakam-ellAm mannA kamalak-kaNNA maNivaNNA


You show such expertise at this pretence, I wonder if all (ellAm) of this (in) pretence/show/drama (nATakam) is something you have practiced/learned (payinradO) in the past (munnam)!

ciTTasvara sAhitya
parivilAda nenjam tandadAr pagal iravellAm ninaindurugiyum
pala vidam tanilE ninaiyazhaittEn manam calittEn oru tuNaiyilEn


Despite the fact that my heart has melted (urigiyum) [1] with tender thoughts (ninaindu) of you that occupy me all through (ellAm) the day (pagal) and night (iravu), and having called out (azhaittEn) to you (ninai) in multiple (pala) ways (vidam tanilE), my heart/mind (manam) is still weary (SaLittEn), and I find myself bereft (illEn) of any (oru) support (tuNai), probably because I have been given (tandalAl/tandadAr) a heart (nenjam) that is a stranger (ilAda) to love (parivu)!

caraNam
kuzhal Udum azhagA kaNNA kurai tIrAyO


Oh krishNa (kaNNA)! The handsome Lord (azhagA) who plays (Udum) the flute (kuzhal)! Won't you put an end to (tIrAyO) my grievances (kuRai)?

caraNasvara sAhityam 1
uLLum puram engum isai ponga tIrAyO (kuzal Udum"¦)


(Won't you put an end to my grievances) so that beautiful music will flow/abound (ponga) both within (uLLum) and around (puram) me?

caraNasvara sAhityam 2
veNNai uNNum vAyA oLiyum mAya kaLvanum nIyA kanniyar nEyA
kadir nigar tUyA un manam kAllA anbelAm poyyA agam urugavE (kuzhal Udum"¦)


Oh Lord whose mouth (vAyA) consumes/eats (uNNum) butter (veNNai), the lover (nEyA) of maidens (kanniyar), are you (nIyA) the illusory (mAya) mischievous prankster (kaLvanum) who hides (oLiyum) from us? Oh lord who is spotless/blemishless (tUyA) like (nigar) [2] the sun (kadir), is your (un) heart (manam) made of stone (kallA), is your love (anb(u)elAm) a lie (poyyA)? (Won't you put an end to my grievances) so that my heart (agam) melts (urugavE) in your love?

caraNasvara sAhityam 3
muzhu madiyaik-kaNDa kaDal alai pOlavum kuLir mazhaiyil nanaiyum iLam payir pOlavum enadu uyirum uDalum uLamum negizha nI vandu manam uvandu karam tandu (kuzhal Udum"¦)


Just as (pOlavum) the waves (alai) of the ocean (kaDal) rise when they behold (kaNDa) the full (muzhu) moon (madiyai), and as tender (iLam) shoots (payir) sprout after being drenched (nanaiyum) in a cool (kuLir) shower (mazhaiyil), won't you (nI) come (vandu) here and extend (tandu) your arm (karam) to me whole-heartedly (manam uvandu) and put an end to my grievances, so that my (enadu) life (uyirum), body (uDalum) and heart (uLamum) can blossom (negizha)?

caraNasvara sAhityam 4
kANum poruLellAm unaiyanri vErEdum kANEn engum malar vizhigaLoDu kuzhal
ashaiyu-mukham mayil iragaNiyum mana mOhanA arugil nI varugavE taruNamE
karuNai puriyavE anburuvE AruyirE vA ALa vA akhilam magizha pavazha idazh pozhiyum (kuzhal Udum"¦)


In all (ellAm) the things (poruL) I see, I am unable to discern (kENEn) anything (vEru Edum) but (anri) you (unai): everywhere (engum) I see beautiful, flower (malar)-like eyes (vizhigaLODu) in a face (mukham) framed with swaying (aSaiyum) locks (kuzhal), adorned (aNiyum) with a peacock (mayil) feather (iragu), Oh captivater (mOhanA) of my heart (mana)! This is the time (taruNamE) for you (nI) to come (varugavE) close to me (arugil) and grant (purivAyE) your compassion (karuNai)! Oh embodiment (uruvE) of love (anbu), you are my very life (AruyirE). Please come (vA) and rule (ALa) over me, as the world (akhilam) delights (magizha)! (Won't you put an end to my grievances) by granting me the nectar that flows (pozhiyum) from your coral (pavazha)-like lips (idazh) [3]?

FOOTNOTES
[1] I wonder if this should be manamurinEnE
[2] nigar literally means equal to
[3] Sri LJG has handled this allusion very delicately without clarifying if this is the music that flows from krishNa's lips as he plays on his flute, or, if the reference is to a kiss (along the lines of Sri jayadEva's dEhi mukha kamala madhupAnam)

Shankar, once again, Great work! This Varnam is my favorite....I learnt it when I was too young to understand the beauty of it... guess with the meaning that you've provided, I 'll enjoy working on this on a different plane.
Ever so grateful for your invaluable contribution!

Without a doubt! Most divine & romantic varnam I have come across; I love the subtlety, yet it's so profound and intense!
