I realize I forgot to post the meaning of aruL seyya veNDum ayyA..so here goes (the lyrics are from a CD of Sri S. Rajam, in which he has sung all the kRtis from kandagAnAmudam):

pallavi
aruL seyya vENDum ayyA(nI) arasE murugayya (nI aruL…)


My Lord (arasE), murugA (murugayyA) you (nI) have to shower (seyya vENDum) your grace (aruL) (on me)!

anupallavi
maruL uravE ennai mayakkiDum mAya
valliruL aravE jnAna sUriyan ena vandOr sol (aruL seyya…)


Please appear/come (vandu) like (ena) the sun (sUriyan) of knowledge (jnAna) (and bless me, Oh murugA) with a (Or) word (sol) [1] that will dispel (aravE) the deep darkness (valliruL) of illusion (mAya) intoxicating (mayakkiDum) and entangling (uravE) me in a web of desire (maruL).

caraNam
nilaiya kAyam ilaiyE idanai
nilayenReNNuvadu enna mAyam
nilaiyenRunnaiyE ninaindu nAn uyya
nEsa kavi kunjaradAsa rasikapriya (aruL seyya…)


This body (kAyam) is not (ilayE) eternal (nilaiya), so what is this (enna) illusion (mAyam) that makes us believe (eNNuvadu) that it (idanai) is permanent (nilaiyenRu)? Oh one who is dear (priya) to the fan (rasika), the loving (nEsa) servant (dAsa), of the poet (kavi) kunjara (bhArati) [2], (you have to bless me, Oh murugA), so that I (nAn) can achieve excellence (uyya) in life by accepting/thinking of you alone (unnaiyE) as the eternal one (nilaiyenRu)!

FOOTNOTES
[1] the word (sol) I think is the praNava – Om
[2] The composer, Sri Koteeswara Iyer was brought up by his maternal grand-father, who was Kavi Kunjara Bharati – Sri KI called himself ‘kavi kunjara dAsan’ – his mudra
