Mürselekian women — Ruhi Su

We Mürselekian
Mürselekian women
Through every night we
Tobacco we line up
Our suffering on a rope we
Line up darkness
Darkness above..

Uproot we uproot
Through every day we
Every night we
Burn coal we
Burn darkness we
Burn darkness above..

Our trees are frightened
Frightened of the night
We are not above..

Come now my dear
My love my dear
Friend my dear

We Mürselekian
Mürselekian women
We do live too
Live too above..
Go be a bride we
Set up houses
Houses above..

Burns Ali Yüce
Burns he hears
Hears above..
Burns Ali Yüce burns…

(Mürselekli kadınlar)

English: Işık Barış Fidaner (August 2013)

Note: Was my mother’s favourite Ruhi Su song.
