Lyrics: Bariq Shafie
aye taaza gul tu zeenat e gulzaar e keesti
Oh fresh flower, you are beauty of which garden?
aye murgh e baagh e dil to geriftaar e keesti
Oh bird of garden of heart, you are captured by whom?
geriftaar e tu 'stam
I am captured by you
ze gulzaar e tu'stam
In your graden
mayem o hardoo zaib e gulistan e zindagi
We are both ornament of the (flower) garden of life
bashad shabe ke ma o tu o saghar o saboo
Let it be a night when you and I and saaghar and Saboo (cup and wine glass)
dar noor e mah ba sabza e tar dar kinare jou
In the moonlight, on fresh grass, beside a stream
bazme bapa konim gham ra re ya konaim
Let us arrange a party and forget the sorrow
ke ean ast muqtaza e baharan e zindagi
That this is the necessity of spring's life
dooshezagan e baagh be uftand tura bipa
The virgin of the garden will prostrate for you
Khanugran shakht ra gardad hamnawa
The musicians on branches will accompany you
dar gulshan e chuneem
In such meadows
dar chasm e paak been
In the candid eye
Husn ast o ishaq rounaq e jaulan e zindagi
There is beauty and love and livelihood of the movement of life
