Ertha Kitt - Uskudara Gider Iken Lyrics

Üsküdar'a gider iken aldý da bir yaðmur 2x
Kâtibimin setresi uzun, eteði çamur 2x
Kâtip uykudan uyanmýþ, gözleri mahmur 2x
Kâtip benim, ben kâtibin, el ne karýþýr?
Kâtibime setereta palto ne de güzel yaraþýr

(Üsküdar is a little town in Ýstanbul, Turkey, along the shore of the Bosphorus...
And in the old days, many women, especially those of upper classes, had young, male secretaries and attendants...
Oh, well, that's Turkey!)

Üsküdar'a gider iken bir mendil buldum 2x
Mendilimin içine lokum doldurdum 2x

(The fine, Istanbullite lady and her secretary take a trip from Üsküdar in the rain...
And on the way they fall deeply in love.
He's wearing a stiff collar...
In a full dress suit...
She looks at him longingly through her light veil
And casually feeds him candy -turkish delight-
Oh, those Turks!)

Kâtibimi arar iken yanimda buldum 2x
Kâtip benim, ben kâtibin, el ne karisir?
Kâtibime kolali da gömlek ne güzel yarasir

Kâtibimi arar iken yanimda buldum 2x
Kâtip benim, ben kâtibin, el ne karisir?
Kâtibime kolali da gömlek ne güzel yarasir 2x
