|Dostun bahçesine bir hoyrat girmiş
Korudur hey benli dilber korudur
Şu meydanda serilidir postumuz
Kendisi okur da kendisi yazar
Hangi dinde isen ona tapayım
Pîr Sultan Abdal'ım başından başlar
|To the garden of my love there came an evil louder
The shrubs now lie there, my fair one, shrubs lie
We've spread our prayer hide all over this place
God Himself reads the fate, Himself he scribes
Whatever your creed be, I will adore it and pray
I am Pir Sultan Abdal, the first of the firsts,
