Robinson Crusoe Robinson Crusoe

Robenson, akıllı Robenson'um,
Ne imreniyorum sana bilsen!
Göstersen adana giden yolu;
Başımı dinlemek istiyorum.

Ben gemi olurum, sen kaptan ol;
Yelken açarız bir sabah vakti.
Güneşte gölgemiz olur deniz
Yolculuk! derken adamızdayız.

İsterdim tercümanım olasın,
Tanıtasın beni balıklara,
Vahşi kuşlara ve çiçeklere;
Bizdendir diyesin benim için.

Ağaca çıkmasını bilirim,
Tanırım meyvanın olmuşunu;
Taş kırmak da gelir elimizden
Ateş yakmak da, aş pişirmek de.

Robenson, halden bilir Robenson,
Adan hâlâ batmadıysa eğer,
Alıp götürsen beni oraya,
Deniz yolu kapanmadan evvel!

Robinson, my clever Robinson
you don't know how I envy you.
If you could only show me your island,
there I would find peace of mind.

I'll be the ship, you be the captain.
We can unfurl the sail one morning.
The sea becomes our shadow in the sun.
The journey. And suddenly we're at our island.

I wish you could be my interpreter,
introduce me to the fish,
to wild birds and flowers,
say to them about me: `He's one of us.'

I know how to climb trees.
I can tell a fruit that's ripe.
I can also manage breaking stones,
making fires, cooking food.

Robinson, understanding Robinson,
if your island hasn't sunk yet
take me there
before the seaways close.
