lyrics

Bebia,
Chaitsvi da deikhure gakalishvildebia.
Bebia,
Pulsats mogtsem, mzitvsats mogtsem, tuk’i gatkhovdelia.
Babua,
Ts’na tutuns tu ver gishovni makhork’am gabrua.
Bitsola,
Vints shen ar ts’egitsoda, mas kondes chemi tsodva.

Translation:

Grandmother,
Dress up nice and you’ll be a young girl again

Grandmother,
I will give you money, and a dowry, if you marry someone

Grandfather,
If I can’t find you some tobacco, the makhorka* will make you dizzy

Aunt,
Whoever does not pity you, let them have my problems.

*very strong, coarse, cheap tobacco
