Zehra Bilir -
Helvacı
[Halva seller]



Çadır altı minare
Marquee, four minarets
El ettim eski yâre
I waved my hand to my ex-lover
Anam kurban ben kurban
My mother and I fell victim
Setre pantollu yâre
To a beloved in a dress suit
 
 
Helvacı helva
Halva seller, halva
Kendir tohumlu helva
Halva with hemp seeds
Şeker lokumlu helva
Sweet, tasty halva
 
 
Kara koyun etli olur
Black sheep will be meaty
Kavurması tatlı olur
Its meat will be tasty
Dul yerine varan kız da
And a girl that will come in place of widow
Ölmez ama dertli olur
Won't die, but will be sorrowful
 
 
Evlerinin direği
Support of the houses
Kardan beyaz bileği
Wrist whiter than snow
Yarından ayrılanın da
The heart of one who breaks up with a lover
Elbet yanar yüreği
Will surely suffer
