Turkish Lyrics

English Translation

German Translation

Takmis Koluna alin adamini
Beni orta yerimden catlatiyor
Agzinda sakizi sisirip
Arsiz arsiz patlatiyor
She goes arms linked with a man
and drives me crazy by doing so
she has chewing gum in her mouth
insolently chewing it, making bubbles burst
Hat sich einen Mann untergehakt
Und macht mich damit rasend
Hat einen Kaugummi im Mund
Was sie unverschämt kaut und platzen läßt
Belki de bu yüzden vuruldum
Sahibin olamadim ya
Sigar mi erkeklige seni simarik
Degisti mi bu dünya
Maybe that is why I am so fond of you
because I did not become your owner
Can a man stand that, you spoilt girl?
Did the world change like this?
Vielleicht bin ich deshalb so angetan von Dir
Weil ich nicht Dein Besitzer wurde
Kann man das als Mann ertragen, Du Verzogene?
Hat sich die Welt so verändert?
Cekmis kasina gözüne sürme
Dudaklar kipkirmizi kiritiyor
Bi de karsima gecmis utanmasi yok
Inadima inadima sirityor
Eyes painted black
coquettish with glaring red lips
she stands up to me defying me
and grins at me insolently
Die Augen schwarz geschminkt
Die knallroten Lippen kokettierend
Stellt sie sich mir gegenüber zum Trotz hin
Und grinst mich unverschämt an
Biz böyle mi gördük babamizdan
Ele güne rezil olduk
Yeni adet gelmis eski köye vah
Dostlar mahvolduk
Did we learn it this way from our fathers?
We have been looking like fools to everyone
New customs have entered the old village
Friends, we are in a fix.
Haben wir das so von unseren Vätern gelernt?
Wir haben uns vor allen blamiert
Neue Bräuche sind ins alte Dorf gekommen
Freunde, wir sind aufgeschmissen
Seni gidi findik kiran
Yilani deliginden cikaran
Kaderim püsküllü belam
Yakalarsam ...
You are a nutcracker
pulling a snake from its hole
my big disgrace
when I get hold of you ... (kiss, kiss)
Du bist mir ein Nußknacker
Die eine Schlange aus ihrem Loch holt
Mein großes Unglück
Wenn ich dich zu fassen kriege, dann ...(Kuß, Kuß)
Ocagina düstüm yavru
Kucasina düstüm yavru
Sicagina düstüm yavru
El aman
I'm seeking protection with you, babe
I'm lying in your lap, babe
I'm burning in your fire, babe
Have mercy!
Ich suche Schutz bei Dir, Babe
Ich liege in Deinem Schoß, Babe
Ich verbrenne an Deinem Feuer, Babe
