Three girls in Şişli Square

Three girls in Şişli Square
One is crocus, the other narcissus
Were shot in broad daylight
There will be time to bring the book
The morning has an owner
There will be time to bring the book
These griefs and pains will be over
There will be time to bring the book

1977, the name of the memorable year
It was a May Celebration
There will be time to bring the book
The morning has an owner
There will be time to bring the book
These griefs and pains will be over
There will be time to bring the book

We were five hundred thousand proletarians
We walked into Taksim Square
We have seen such an Istanbul
There will be time to bring the book
The morning has an owner
