Leylim Ley

1. Döndüm daldan kopan kuru yaprağa, leylim ley,
Seher yeli dağıt beni kır beni, leylim ley,
Götür tozlarımı burdan uzağa, leylim ley,
Yarin çıplak ayağına sür beni, leylim ley.
 
— ||: Leylim ley, leylim ley. :||
 
2. Ayın şavkı vurur sazın üstüne, leylim ley,
Söz söyleyen yoktur sözüm üstüne, leylim ley,
Gel ey hilal kaşlım dizim üstüne, leylim ley,
Ay bir yandan sen bir yandan sar beni, leylim ley.
 
— ||: Leylim ley, leylim ley. :||
 
3. Yedi yıldır uğramadım yurduma, leylim ley,
Dert ortağı aramadım derdime, leylim ley,
Geleceksen bir gün düşüp ardıma, leylim ley,
Kula değil yüreğine sor beni, leylim ley.
 
— ||: Leylim ley, leylim ley. :||

Lelylim ley(it has no meaning in Turkish)

I have turned into a dry leave which fell off a tree branch
the breeze of down scatters me, brakes me
take my scattered parts away from here
Take me to the naked foot of my lover(to see her)
 
--Leylim ley, leylim ley
 
The moon's light shines on my saz (a musical instrument)
No word is above mine
come my lover -with crescent eyebrows-, above my knees
The moon from one side, you from the other, both hug me
 
I haven't been to my homeland for 7 years
i did not look for a partner to share my troubles with
one day if you come after me
not any creature, ask your heart about me
 
Thanks!
