lyrics

Dilikê min lê lê li ber felekê
hespan bînin zînan deynin li ser kê lekê
Seydikê min birîndare
hay hun bibin bajarê Diyarbekrê
birîna Seydikê min derba vê tifekê
dîtina min û Seydikê min çu roja qiyametê
Seydiko seydevano denbêjo bilurvano
sal û șepik bergûzê van nêriyano
xanîkê Seydikê min li pișta çûyê
belê Seydikê min eve sê roje zavaye
hûn bibin vê serșoyê
bo xwidê biken hûn bibin bajarê Zaxoyê

My son Seydik got up early secretly
bring the horses put the saddles on them
my Seydik is wounded
we will take him to the healer
my God let's take him to the town
the wound of my Seydik is that of my rifle
the last time I see my Seydik
is the last day of the world
Seydik my dear flute playing bard
your clothes looked like
the skin of an animal
the house of my Seydik is by the river
today my Seydik is a groom
take him to the hamam to wash his head
my Seydik is wounded,
take him to the town of Zakhoye
Seydik my dear, flute playing bard
your clothes looked like
the skin of an animal
Seydik my dearest
the one who hunts small birds
you thought you were a hunter
hadn't I told you not to go out
to hunt the wild beasts
may your father lose both his eyes
I killed my Seydik in the place
of a mountain goat
