Turkish Folk Songs



Dandini Dandini Dastana (Turkish)


Dandini dandini dastana
Danalar girmiş bostana
Kov bostancı danayı
Yemesin lahanayı
Huuu huuu huuu

Dandini dandini danadan
Bir ay doğmuş anadan
Kaçınmamış yaradan
Mevla korusun nazardan
Huuu huuu huu hu

Dandini dandini danaylı
Kaplarımız kalaylı
Kızım konak gelini
Oğlum olsa saraylı
Huu huu huu hu

Dandini dandini danaylı
Benim oğlum onaylık
On olmasın beş olsun
Güzellere eş olsun
Eee eee eee


Dandini Dandini Dastana (English)


Dan-dini dan-dini dastana
Into the garden the calves did stray.
Gardener quickly chase them away.
They will eat the cabbages without delay,
Huuu- huuu- huuu

Dan-dini dan-dini
A moon is born from a mothers womb,
God has not witheld anything from him
May God protect him from the Evil Eye
Huuu- huuu -huu hu

Dan-dini Dan-dini
May our pots be coated with tin
May my daughter be a bride in a mansion
And my son dwell in a palace
Huuu –huuu- huu hu

Dan-dini Dan-dini
My son is ten months old
Even were he only five months old
May he find beauties as brides
Eh-e, eh-e eh-e eh-e!!
