Mamak Türküsü
geldiğimizde otlar yemyeşildi
ve kuzeydeydi güneş
kömür deposu boşaldı işte
Mamağa sonbahar geldi

güneş altında tutsaklar
geçen sonbahara bakıyorlar
şirin mi şirin gecekondu evleri
samsun asfaltında otomobiller
ne güzeldir yollarda olmak şimdi


The Ballad of Mamak
When we got there the grass was green
and the sun was shining from the North
the coal in the stores was moved away
and in Mamak the autumn was taking its toll

Under the sun were the captives
gazing at the fall that was passing by
and so lovely were the slum houses
and cars kept cruising on Samsun highway

How good it would be
to be on the roads again!

Quoting vineyards:

Mamak Türküsü

ve kuzeydeydi güneş
kömür deposu boşaldı işte
mamağa sonbahar geldi

güneş altında tutsaklar

şirin mi şirin gecekondu evleri
samsun asfaltında otomobiller
ne güzeldir yollarda olmak şimdi


The Ballad of Mamak
When we got there the grass was green
and the sun was shining from the North
the coal in the stores was moved away
and in Mamak the autumn was taking its toll

Under the sun were the captives
gazing at the fall that was passing by
and so very lovely were the slum houses
and the cars kept cruising on the Samsun highway

How good it would be to be on the roads again!

For those who are interested in the Klasik Kemence sound on this soundtrack:

This instrument is one of the most difficult to master; it is fretlesss and played by a gentle touch of the finger nails on the strings. Unless done precisely, it is impossible to get a nice sound from it.

CEMBER
Ya disindasindir cemberin
Ya da icinde yer alacaksin
Kendin icindeyken kafan disindaysa
Caresi yok kardesim
her aksam boyle icip kederlenip
Mutsuz olacaksın
Meyhane masalarında kahrolocaksın
Siirlerle sarkilarla kendini avutacaksin
Ya disindasindir cemberin
Ya da icinde yer alacaksin

CIRCLE
You are either outside this circle
Or you will get a place in it

If you are in but your head is not
It cannot be helped brother
You will drink to misery every night
Ending each time with only despair
trying to forget it all with poems and songs

You are either outside this circle
Or you will get a place in it
