COUNTRY: Azerbaijan
LANGUAGE: Azeri

A love song from Azerbaijan. The liner notes of the Smithsonian Folkways album that features this song, Music of Central Asia Vol. 6: Alim and Fargana Qasimov: Spiritual Music of Azerbaijan, say, “In Azerbaijan, jeyran refers to a kind of deer that lives in the mountains and the plains. They’re lovely animals, and because theireyes are so beautiful, poets often use this word. There are many girls named Jeyran in Azerbaijan.”]

I long to embrace you, my dear

Your soul strong and clever, Jeyran

I’ll love you forever, my dear
I’ll love you forever, Jeyran

 

Let all the songbirds sing it, my dear
Let all the poets rhyme it, Jeyran
Your eyes, pure as heaven, my dear
True love knows no time my Jeyran

 

I long to embrace you, my dear
Your soul strong and clever, Jeyran
I’ll love you forever, my dear
I’ll love you forever, Jeyran
