Usage

Over-excited Anchor on Sun Music: Sollunga Babitha, enda paatu padringa? (Tell, Babitha, what song will you sing?)
Babitha: Vaseegara-nga. (Vaseegara-nga)
Babitha sings tunelessly, "Vaseegara, en nenjinikka, un pon-madiyil, toonginaal podum" (Handsome, I would like to sleep on your lap, And if I die at that moment, then all your wishes In your rebirths will be fulfilled.) And suddenly stops.
Over-excited Sun Music Anchor (waits for a few seconds to see if there's anything more. Then, recovering): Thank you, Babitha, for that short and sweet rendition!
