Barış Manço - Günaydın Çocuklar (English translation)

English translation

Good Morning Kids

Hey Hey good morning kids good morning
You always greeted me with a smiling face
Hey Hey good morning kids good morning
You always listen to me all day and all night long
 
I thought last night, if there were no colors
The World would be uninhabitable
I'm afraid, there are among us those who want a world in black
Elders want to play sometimes; pistols, swords, riffles
It's a matter of taste
 
There's no accounting for taste,you can get all these pleasures
Just let the colours to the kids
Hey hey good morning kids good morning
Have you seen a red tree?
Hey hey good morning kids good morning
Have you ever thought why the sky is blue?
 
Wheat* is yellow, grass is green; everything has a colour
The balance of nature doesn't change
purple orange yellow magenta pink khaki, even the mud is brown.
 
Elders want to play sometimes; pistols, swords, riffles
It's a matter of taste
 
There's no accounting for taste,you can get all these pleasures
Just let the colours to the kids
 
In far country, its people have agreed
While they were leaving the guns
Two of them were immediately opposed and they won
There was a button in front of both of them
One is green and the other is red
Said one-two-three pushed it
And eventually the world became dark
Just like they want
 
Elders want to play sometimes; pistols, swords, riffles
It's a matter of taste
 
There's no accounting for taste,you can get all these pleasures
Just let the colours to the kids
 
All the kids want to play
