Barış Manço "Olmaya Devlet Cihanda" paroles

Traduction vers: EN DE RU

Usta terzi dar kumaştan bol gömlek diker
Doğru tartan esnaf rahat, huzurlu gezer
Eğrinin ve doğrunun hesabı mahşerde
Dünyada biraz huzur her şeye bedel
Sağlığın nasıl gülüm, sen ondan haber ver
İlaç neye yarar vade gelmişse eğer?

Halk içinde muteber bir nesne yok devlet gibi,
Olmaya devlet cihanda bir nefes sıhhat gibi

Han senin, hamam senin, konaklar senin
Tarla senin, çiftlik senin, bağ bostan senin
Diyelim ki dünya malı tümünden senin;
Ağız tadıyla yersen bir şeye benzer
Sağlığın nasıl gülüm, sen ondan haber ver
İlaç neye yarar vade gelmişse eğer?

Halk içinde muteber bir nesne yok devlet gibi,
Olmaya devlet cihanda bir nefes sıhhat gibi

Barış der biraz tuzum, ekmeğim olsa
Buz gibi pınar suyundan bir testim olsa
Bir de şöyle püfür püfür bir çınar gölgesi
Kaç kula nasip olur ki keyfin böylesi?
Bir lokma ye, bir yudum iç, bir oh çekiver
İlaç neye yarar vade gelmişse eğer?

Halk içinde muteber bir nesne yok devlet gibi,
Olmaya devlet cihanda bir nefes sıhhat gibi...

Master tailor could sew a large shirt from small cloth
Honest merchant's mind would be at ease
Your rights and wrongs will be in the judgement day
A little peace in this world is worth everything
How's your health, dear? Tell me about that
What good would the medicine do if you're full of debt?

There isn't another respected object among people like royalty
Royalty isn't worth as much as a healthy breath in this world*

You have the nobility, palaces, property
Fields, meadows are yours
Let's say the world is yours
It'd count as something if you'd spend it without any rush
How's your health, dear? Tell me about that
What good would the medicine do if you're full of debt?

There isn't another respected object among people like royalty
Royalty isn't worth as much as a healthy breath in this world

Barış* says if I'd have a bit of salt and bread
And a jug of fresh ice-cold fountain water
And a nice chilly shade of a plane tree
How many people could enjoy these?
Take a bit, take a ship, say "ahhh" once
What good would the medicine do if you're full of debt?

There isn't another respected object among people like royalty
Royalty isn't worth as much as a healthy breath in this world...
