Ammai(Mother) and Appane(Father) are En(my) Ulagam(World) , enaeduthOthiyavanE(Having stood as an example thus you preached )

(Lord Ganesha Circumambulated/went around his parents to show that in effect he had gone around the world itself in a contest with his brother as to who completes going around the world first to win the contest and also in that process he showed/preached to the world by standing as an example that ones' parents are of great importance to a child similar to whole world esp more so in the case of Lord Ganesha as his parents are none other than Goddess Parvati & God Shiva
who are the divine couples venerated as Mother & Father for the whole universe. )

2.mAlmaruganum valliyum ondRagi maNam puNara oru thuNai ninravanE

mAlmaruganum(Lord Muruga who was the nephew of mAl(Lord vishnu) & Lord Ganesha's brother) and Valli(a hunter princess) ondRagi(got united) maNam puNara (in wedlock/marriage) with the thuNai(assistance/help) of You,Lord Ganesha.

4. vA vA akara muthal ezhuthAga nee vA Anandha nadaiyudanE nee vA
iru vinaigal theera Esan maganE parivodu nee vA
