I am a flower from the garden which has wilted in the sun

Noketru hanv fanteavelem kupan dampolem.

I am the morning star which was hidden by the clouds

borem dista Bakra Baban mhunn rabum dovorlem.

Because the landlord liked me so much, he kept me with him

What were you doing there sitting in the garden.

Maka mog ghe fulancho,

I only love flowers,

Dubau dori naka ankvar cholleacho

Do not doubt me with the bachelor boys.
