Kolaveri Di, the song, which was released on Youtube on Nov. 16, has instantly became viral on social networking sites for its quirky Tamil-English lyrics.
Sung and written by Tamil movie star, Dhanush, the song is from the upcoming Tamil movie 3, due for release in 2012.
The lyrics of the song go like yo boys I am singing song, soup song, flop song. Why this kolaveri kolaveri kolaveri di why this kolaveri kolaveri kolaveri di rhythm correct why this kolaveri kolaveri kolaveri di maintain this why this kolaveri..di.
In Tamil, Kolaveri means a savage fury. The song is mostly a plea from a man to a woman, wondering what all the anger’s about. The combination of the simplistic melody and Dhanush’s laidback drawl creates a catchy tune.
The crazy lyrics and the foot-tapping music caught the attention of Amitabh Bachchan as well.

The elated director of the song and Dhanush's wife, Aishwarya wrote, “touches 10 lakh hits on youtube ...thank u so much for the kolaveri response n love u have for me”.
