LYRICS

Sıra, sıra, paytonlar
Getirdim sana
Ne dedim sana Marikam
Darldın bana.

Kutu, Kutu lokumlar
Yedirim sana
Ne dedim sana Marikam
Darldın bana.
      Row upon row of phaetons
I brought for you.
What did I say wrong my Marika?
You were offended.

Boxes of Turkish delight
I fed you.
What did I say wrong my Marika?
You were offended.
