Vow flirty

I went down to the river, hoy nanayda
Vow flirty
To break the olive branch, hoy nanayda
Vow flirty
I came to take, you, hoy nanayda
Vow flirty
Started to cry, hoy nanayda
Vow flirty
 
Nayda na , hoy nanayda , hoy nanayda
Vow flirty
Nayda na hoy ninayda, hoy nanayda
Vow flirty
 
Cockleburs are along the creek, hoy nanayda
Vow flirty
Let's sit together, hoy nanayda
Vow flirty
You tell, then I'll tell, hoy nanayda
Vow flirty
Let's get rid of this love, hoy nanayda
Vow flirty
 
I walk along the creek, hoy nanayda
Vow flirty
I cut willow branches, hoy nanayda
Vow flirty
Wherever I see a beauty, hoy nanayda
Vow flirty
I make eyes at her, hoy nanayda
Vow flirty
 
Thanks!

The meaning of "hoy" and "nanayda" is not clear. According to the "Survey Dictionary [of Anatolian dialects]", "Nanay" is a folk tune and a dance that accompanies it around Kars in northeastern Turkey. It could, therefore, mean "at the dance".

"Cileveloy" I believe is a contraction of "cilveli oy", meaning "vow flirtatious/flirty/coquettish".
