Uska Dara (A Turkish Tale)

Üsküdar'a gider iken aldi da bir yagmur
Üsküdar'a gider iken aldi da bir yagmur
Kâtibimin setresi uzun, etegi çamur(2x)
Kâtip uykudan uyanmis, gözleri mahmur (2x)
Kâtip benim, ben kâtibin, ele karisir?
Kâtibime siter eter faltu ne güzel yarasir
 
Uskadara is a little town in Turkey
And in the old days, many women had male secretaries
Oh, well, that's Turkey
 
Üsküdar'a gider iken bir mendil buldum (2x)
Mendilimin içine lokum doldurdum (2x)
 
They take a trip from Uskudara in the rain
And on the way they fall in love
He's wearing a stiff collar
In a full dress suit
She looks at him longingly through her veil
And casually feeds him candy
Oh, those Turks
 
Kâtibimi arar iken yanimda buldum (2x)
Kâtip benim, ben kâtibin, el ne karisir?
Kâtibime kolali da gömlek ne güzel yarasir
 
Kâtibimi arar iken yanimda buldum (2x)
Kâtip benim, ben kâtibin, el ne karisir?
Kâtibime kolali da gömlek ne güzel yarasir (2x)

Hey, thank you, I had found that, too, but in this recording she somehow sings a different version...

I listened live performance of this song. But I don't know anything about studio version. I will take a look.
