Gul roo ba kuneed waraq waraq boyee kaanee
Face like a flower, it give petals their frangrance

Ba lalazar e be watan me yaraat
The land of My beloved is Lalazar

I will spread a carpet of flowers under your feet

Gul me kashtam gul e gulab me kashtam
Spread flowers, Spread rose flowers

Khak e qadamt padi dam e war dashtaam
I will sacrifice myself at the dust of your feet

Bring me the glass so I may lose my self

Paimona bedah key khumar astam
Bring me the glass so I may lose my self
