Hello! I'm looking for the lyrics in this song and I can not find them anywhere. I think they are in Turkish and after 8:00 they are in Greek (I can understand what they say). You can help?

I tend to agree that it doesn't sound like Turkish.. I mean it didn't make sense to me.

Thank you very much for the response.
If it's not Turkish I wonder in which language it is ...
It's probably Arabic because in some other song they talk about Egypt. They also use several musical instruments that have eastern roots such as santuri, taxim, bouzouki (which is Greek) etc.
As I said, after 8 minutes singing some lyrics from Gerakina' an old folk song, and I understand them very easily.
The other verses are incomprehensible to me. At beggining, I think says about "Sakarya" a Turkish city and I assumed that the language might be Turkish.
But I was wrong ... However, if someone knows Arabic and can understand the lyrics I will be very pleased to hear him. If it isn't neither Arabic, then I don't know what it can be ...

They do use such instruments, although I am pretty sure it isn't Arabic either. It isn't Persian either. I am guessing it might be one of these languages which I know nothing about: Armenian, Georgian, Hungarian...
Or maybe they made a language up and are just singing nonsense? Haha
