Dan-dini dan-dini dastana
Into the garden the calves did stray.
Gardener quickly chase them away.
They will eat the cabbages without delay,
Huuu- huuu- huuu
A moon is born from a mothers womb,
God has not witheld anything from him
May God protect him from the Evil Eye
Huuu- huuu -huu hu
May our pots be coated with tin
May my daughter be a bride in a mansion
And my son dwell in a palace
Huuu -huuu- huu hu
My son is ten months old
Even were he only five months old
May he find beauties as brides
Eh-e, eh-e eh-e eh-e!!
