Turkish
Yer yerinden oynar dostlar, halay denince
Bir başkayız aşka gelince
Coşkuluyuz sel gibi, esen yel gibi
Bakmayız yabana el gibi

Elvan elvan açsın dostlar dalda çiçekler
Bizim elde çoktur güzeller
Sevdalı türkülerle verip elele
Seslenelim yedi düvele

Sevdalı türkülerle verip elele
Seslenelim yedi düvele

Elele çalsin oynansin halay
Sevgiyle çalsin oynansin halay

Herkes bu meydanda canım bir yer beğensin
Davullar çalsın eğlensin
Aşık coşsun vursun dostlar sazın teline
Can dayanmaz tatlı diline

Yumak yumak örülsün dostluk bağları
Aşalım o zorlu dağları
Sevdalı türkülerle verip elele
Seslenelim yedi düvele

Sevdalı türkülerle verip elele
Seslenelim yedi düvele

Elele çalsin oynansin halay
Sevgiyle çalsin oynansin halay

Yumak yumak örülsün dostluk bağları
Aşalım o zorlu dağları
Sevdalı türkülerle verip elele
Seslenelim yedi düvele

Sevdalı türkülerle verip elele
Seslenelim yedi düvele

Elele çalsin oynansin halay
Sevgiyle çalsin oynansin halay

Halay

Translation
The ground will tremble, fellows, when the halay is danced
We love in a different way
We are exuberant like torrents, like gusting winds
We don’t look upon foreigners as strangers

Let blooms blossom on the bough
We have so many beautiful things
Let’s sing old love songs
To the whole world

Let’s sing old love songs
To the whole world

Hand in hand, we play and dance the halay
With affection, we play and dance the halay

Let everyone take a place on this floor
Let drums beat and rejoice
Let the troubadour strike the strings of his lute
So lovely is this tune

Let’s weave a web of friendship
Let’s cross over those unyielding mountains
Let’s sing old love songs
To the whole world

Let’s sing old love songs
To the whole world

Hand in hand, we play and dance the halay
With affection, we play and dance the halay

Let’s weave a web of friendship
Let’s cross over those unyielding mountains
Let’s sing old love songs
To the whole world

Let’s sing old love songs
To the whole world

Hand in hand, we play and dance the halay
With affection, we play and dance the halay

Halay
