Since a thousand years,

Enver Usta has carved into hearts

On Çavuşlu he is,

The whole Black Sea plays horon

Cry out the mountains their love

The mulberry shutting nightgales up

Makes bows speak up

On Giresun where is

The hometown of kemancha,

And touches the earlock of the love

A couple of drops join

Into the flood of Görele.
