I want to live with Osman

This world has become lonely for me

Please don't agonize & cry mother of Osman

Don't agonize and cry mother of Afan

He was martyred for his land

A torch is now lighted is his house

On the day of the 6th offensive

They called him a hero.

Hero he hailed

The hero was hit and fought in forests

He took it in his forehead

The enemy bullet which hit him

Oh Osman! have peace your're avenged

I have taken your message

Do not agonize and do not cry, and

Be proud " I said to your mother

He was a hero and a man of generosity

And I told her your hailing

Do not agonize;do not cry Um Osman

Do not agonize;do not cry Um Afan

He was martyred for his land

A torch is now lighted in his house
