ஆய வெள்ளம் வழிபடக் கண்டு இது
மாயமோ என்றலும் , வாயில் பெற்று உய்தலும்,
பண்பு பாராட்டலும் , பயந்தோர்ப் பழிச்சலும்,
கண்படை பெறாது கங்குல் நோதலும் , எனும்
ஐந்தும் பிரிவுழிக் கலங்கல் விரி ஆகும்.

Oodha color ribbon unnaku yarudi appan – soladi avanuku nan salam podanum, Roja color bommi yar unnaku mommy solladi na avaluku sabash podanum….So if you felt Oodha color ribbon was fresh idea in lyrics.. it simply means you didn’t read Tamil grammar in school!

Narrinai 8 has identical lyrics to Oodha color and is example of Payanthor pazhiccal. You can see the post on Narrinai 8 here https://karkanirka.org/2015/02/22/oodha-color-ribbon-and-its-sangam-predecessor/
