Üç Dil Three Languages

En azından üç dil bileceksin
En azından üç dilde
Ana avrat dümdüz gideceksin
En azından üç dil bileceksin
En azından üç dilde düşünüp rüya göreceksin
En azından üç dil
Birisi ana dilin
Elin ayağın kadar senin
Ana sütü gibi tatlı
Ana sütü gibi bedava
Nenniler, masallar, küfürler de caba
Ötekiler yedi kat yabancı
Her kelime arslan ağzında
Her kelimeyi bir bir dişinle tırnağınla
Kök sökercesine söküp çıkartacaksın
Her kelimede bir tuğla boyu yükselecek
Her kelimede bir kat daha artacaksın

En azından üç dil bileceksin
En azından üç dilde
Canımın içi demesini
Kırmızı gülün alı var demesini
Atın ölümü arapadan olsun demesini
Keçiyi yardan uçuran bir tutam ottur demesini
İnsanın insanı sömürmesi
Rezilliğin dik âlâsı demesini
Ne demesi be
Gümbür gümbür gümbürdemesini becereceksin

En azından üç dil bileceksin
En azından üç dilde
Ana avrat dümdüz gideceksin
En azından üç dil
Çünkü sen ne tarih ne coğrafya
Ne şu ne busun
Oğlum Mernuş
Sen otobüsü kaçırmış bir milletin çocuğusun

Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu

You need to know at least three languages
At least in three languages
You need to swear like a sailor
You need to know at least three languages
In at least three languages you need to dream and think
At least three languages
One your mother tongue
It's yours as your arm and foot
As sweet as mother's milk
As free as mother's milk
Besides are yours cradlesongs, fairy tales and oaths
The other ones unfamiliar like a rooster in a hen house
Each word in a lion's mouth
With your nail and teeth
You need to pull out each word like getting blood out of stone
With each word you will rise a brick higher
With each word you will grow once more
At least three languages you need to know
In three languages at least you need to know
To say, my sweetheart
To say, never a rose without the prick
To say, one might as well be hanged for a sheep as for a lamb
To say, it is a pinch of weed that makes a goat forget its lover
To say, it is the biggest shame
Man exploiting others
For God's sake, forget saying things
You need to know how to boom like a thunder
You need to know at least three languages
At least in three languages
You need to swear like a sailor
At least three languages
Because you are not history nor geography
Nor this nor that
My little Mernuş
You are the child of a nation who has missed the bus
