about

another favorite encore of ours, Esmerim Biçim Biçim is another Diyarbakır folk dance song in fast 2/4 time. This one probably originally was sung in Kurdish or Armenian, as there was much less of a Turkish-language song tradition in Diyarbakır before the formation of the Turkish Republic in the 1920s, but in any event the version here has very "silly" lyrics.

lyrics

Esmerim biçim biçim, ölürüm esmer için
Alem bana düşmandır, esmer sevdiğim için oy

Hele loy loy loy kibar yarim esmerim oy
Hele loy loy loy güzel yarim esmerim

Esmer bugün ağlamış, yüreğini dağlamış
Kara kaşın üstüne siyah puşi bağlamış oy

Bir taş attım havaya geldi düştü araya
Onbeş kızı kandırdın, bir şişe lavantaya oy
