Mehmet Erdem -
Hakim Bey
[Your honor]


Şikayetim var cümle yasaktan
I'm filing a complaint against all bans
Dillerimi hakim bey bağlasan durmaz
Your honor, my tongue won't stop even if you'll tie it
Gelsin jandarma polis karakoldan
Let the gendarmerie come, police from the outposts
Fikrim firarda mapusa sığmaz eyvah
My mind is on the run, it won't fit into the cell
Gün olur yerle yeksan olurum
One day I'll become one with the ground
Gün olur şahım devri devranda,
One day my ruler's era will come
Kanun üstüne kanun yapsalar,
If laws will be constantly changed
Söz uçar yazı iki cihanda eyvah,
Words fly away, but writings stay in both worlds
 
 
Sussan olmuyor susmasan olmaz,
It doesn't work if you keep silence, but you can't break it
Dil dursa hakim bey tende can durmaz,
If tongue will stop, your honor, soul won't stay in a body for long
Yazsan olmuyor yazmasan olmaz,
It doesn't work if you write, but it's impossible for you no to
Kaleme tedbir koma tek durmaz
Don't put obstacles to a pen, it won't stop
