LYRICS

giydigin atlas
igneler batmaz
yâr bensiz yatmaz
haci cavcav,
oh canıma deysin.

lingo lingo şişeler
rakımı ictin sen bensiz
camuramı dustun edepsiz
yâr yâr yâr
aman!

giydigin sarı
kadehler yarı
sen kimin yâri
haci cavcav,
oh canıma deysin.
      you wear satin
needles will not prick
lover will not sleep without me
weak coffee, (nonsense words)
this pleases me greatly.

clink, clink, bottles
did you drink raki without me?
did you fall into mud, shameless?
lover lover lover
mercy!

you wear yellow
drinking glasses are half empty
whose loved one are you?
weak coffee, (nonsense words)
this pleases me greatly.
