Memleket İsterim I Want a Country

Memleket isterim
G繹k mavi, dal yeşil, tarla sarı olsun;
Kuşların 癟i癟eklerin diyarı olsun.

Memleket isterim
Ne başta dert, ne g繹n羹lde hasret olsun;
Kardeş kavgasına bir nihayet olsun.

Memleket isterim
Ne zengin fakir, ne sen ben farkı olsun;
Kış g羹n羹 herkesin evi barkı olsun.

Memleket isterim
Yaşamak, sevmek gibi g繹n羹lden olsun;
Olursa bir şikayet 繹l羹mden olsun.


I want a country
let the sky be blue, the bough green, the cornfield yellow
let it be a land of birds and flowers

I want a country
let there be no pain in the head, no yearning in the heart
let there be an end to brothers' quarrels

I want a country
let there be no rich and poor, no you and me
on winter days let everyone have hose and home

I want a country
let living be like loving fromthe heart
if there must be complaint, let it be of death
