See, even PRI's "Type" choice does not have one for this lullaby, cleverly tuned by Maestro Ilaiyaraaja, the musical legend from the southern state of Tamil Nadu in Madras, India.The situation for this lullaby goes like this. The hero is a mentally immature, yet, innocent man. He composes an epistolary lullaby -- in the form of a written letter that he wants to write for his own love. The only problem is that, he doesn't know how to read and write. So, he dictates his message, which is written by his love. That is what forms the lyric of this song, penned by Mr. Vaalee, a legendary Tamil poet. In this song, the word  lAA-lee -- towards the end -- signifies that it is a lullaby.
