I have come from abroad, I'm tired, the innkeeper!
Lay a bed here slowly...
Oh! My eyes shouldn't see the darkness,
Strech the white curtains slowly...
My homeland is fragrant, necessarily home!
My arms long for offspring.
I'll tell you everything,
Sit down at my bedside and ask slowly.
I hardly bought a ticket from the box office,
The journey began from "Haydarpaşa"...
The innkeeper, please from the bottle in your hands,
Give me a few drops more slowly!..
I both wept and drank in that night,
I flew from a realm to another for two days,
I passed through "Niğde" by the way of "Kayseri",
"Bor" was seen from far away slowly...
I'm wretch, everywhere is strange for me,
I'm afflicted, don't hesitate, fill in the glass, the innkeeper!
First a slight pain moves inside,
Separation affects later slowly...
I have her picture of which the half has been torn,
My home's door has been closed for ten years...
When the wretch gets drunk in addition,
He spills all his secrets slowly...
As you see, the innkeeper, I'm always so,
Neither ask me the rest nor I'll tell you.
Remove the empty glass now, (with it) what will I do?
Let me pay the bill slowly...
