English Translation of "Voda Voda " song from Mayakam Enna

Hi guys
       Too many Tamil post and my Non-Tamil readers would have really bugged up with my previous posts. Many non-tamil people who hear this song "Voda Voda Voda" from Mayakam Enna is wondering what is the exact meaning of this song. They don't know the meaning but still they enjoy it. Now read this post, know the meaning and sing it along.

       I have differentiated the original lyrics of the song in blue color and the meaning of it in the next line in red color. Here we go...

Voda voda voda thooram korayala...
Running running running distance didn't get reduced...
Paada paada  paada paatum mudiyala...
Singing singing singing song didn't get over...
Poga poga poga onum puriyala, aaga motham onum velangala...
Time passing by nothing able to grasp, totally nothing understood...
Free ah suthum podhu figure illaye...
While roaming freely figure was not there...
Pudicha figurum ipa free ah illaye...
The figure I liked is not free now..
Kayil bat iruku ball illaye, life poora indha thollaye...
Bat is there in hand ,but no ball.. full of life this problem only...

Ulagame speed ah odi pogudhu... En vandi punchar aagi nikkudhu...
World is running fast... Only my bike is standing still with flat tyre...
Mokka piece kuda enna kindal panudhu... Saami ena bangam panudhu..
Moderate looking girl is also mocking me... Even GOD is betraying me...
Crack ah maariten.. Joker aayiten.. Gundu chattiyile rendu kudhura vandi oturen....
I have changed into a crack... I have become a joker... Trying to ride two horse chariot in a small fat round vessel...

Oru beach la thaniya alanjen alanjen... 
In one beach I roamed, roamed alone...
Nadu roatula aludhen porenden kilinjen...
In middle of the road, I cried, rolled,torn...
Baaram thaangala thaangala, Kaludha na illaye....
Could not bear the weight, I m not a donkey...
Jaanu yerala yerala, mozhama sarukarane...
The half cubit measure didnt rise, sliding like cubit measure..
[Jaan: Unit of length measured from tip of the thumb to the tip of the little finger
Mozham: If I remember right it is equal to two jaans. A direct definition is the length of the forearm starting with the tip of the middle finger. Strung flowers are measured in mozhams  The word has an English equivalent - cubit.]

Crack ah maariten.. Joker aayiten.. fuse pona pin bulb kaana switch ah theduren....
I have changed into a crack... I have become a joker... I m searching for the bulb switch after it got fused...

[voda voda repeat]


Nadu raathiri, ezhunthen paduthen ezhunthen
In the middle of night, I got up, lied back, again got up...
Oru maadhiri, sirichen aluthen sirichen
Like mad guy, I laughed, cried and laughed...
Meenaa neendhuren neendhuren, kadalum seralaye
Swimming, swimming like fish.. couldn't reach the sea...
Padaga poguren poguren, karaiyum seralaye

Going, going like boat, couldn't reach the shore...

Crack ah maariten.. Joker aayiten.. Kelvi kettu kettu kelvi kuri pola nikkuren
I have changed into a crack... I have become a joker...I have become a question mark by asking many questions...

[voda voda repeat]
