Read the lyrics of the new song:

Urvasi Urvasi, take it easy Urvasi
If you are thin as a pin,
No need for a pharmacy.
Urvasi Urvasi, take it easy Urvasi
If you are thin as a pin,
No need for a pharmacy.
To win in life
Take it easy policy
In this rainbow life, youth is a fantasy.
Urvasi Urvasi, take it easy Urvasi
Speak, you beautiful dame, For Tamil has 3 lakh words
You, my fair lady, Utter at least two.
To win in life Take it easy policy
In this rainbow life, youth is a fantasy.

(Instrumental)

Verse (3:17)

If Hillary Clinton loses, take it easy policy.
If Donald Trump becomes the president, take it easy policy.
If 500rs gets demonetized, take it easy policy.
If 1000rs gets demonetized, take it easy policy.
Urvasi Urvasi, take it easy policy.
Listen, you beautiful dame, There are 6 lakh nerves in the body.
Do u know, my love, On which side the love nerve runs?
To win in life Take it easy policy
In this rainbow life, youth is a fantasy.

(Instrumental)

Verse (4:24)

Love doesn’t flow at first sight, Wandering eyes never destroyed chastity.
There are no vegetarians among cats, There is no Raman among men.
Without revolution, there won’t be wonders for women.
Kannagi has a statue here, Is there a statue for Sita?

If your battery dies while flirting, take it easy policy.
If the cops catch you despite wearing a helmet, take it easy policy.
If they say torn jeans are a fashion, take it easy policy.
If your dhoti strips despite wearing a belt, take it easy policy.
Urvasi Urvasi, take it easy Urvasi
If you are thin as a pin,No need of a pharmacy
To win in life, Take it easy policy
In this rainbow life, youth is a fantasy.
.

Verse (5:29)

What is use of dreaming at night, if one doesn’t see colours during day?
What is the use of heaven if there is no freedom?
What is the use of classrooms if there are no girls?
What is the use of dancing at 60, if one doesn’t dance at 20?
