Hi Bharathan, I got the lyrics from the website:http://www.ecse.rpi.edu/Homepages/shivkuma/personal/music/thel iyaleru.html Visit the above website you can get lyrics for lots of other keerthis also.
Theliyaleru Raama Bhakti Margamunu
Ilanantata Dirugucunu Kaluvarincheru Gaani
Vegalechi Nita Munigi Bhuti Pusi
Vellanenchi Veliki Slaghaneeyulai
Baaga Paika Maarjana Lolurai
Re Gaani Tyaaga Raaja Vinuta
O Rama, we do not (“leru”) know (“theliya”) the path (“margamunu”) of devotion (“bhakthi”)!
Men in this whole world (“ilanantata”) only roam (“diruguchunu”) about in tension all over (“kaluvarincheru”) without being aware of the path of devotion.
They get up (“lechi”) at dawn (“vega”), attend to their ablutions, wear the emblems of creed and count the beads appearing to be spiritual and religious, but busy with their working out the strategy for making money by hook or crook
