Olmaz Olmaz Bu İş Olamaz

I have been living in US last 12 years. Usually I hardly ever speak Turkish. I do not know any Turkish person in Portland. All my friends live in Turkey. Occasionally I chat with a few of my friends via Skype. I try to not forget my mother tongue. I read daily newspaper in Turkish online, but speaking is different. Sometimes I miss speaking in Turkish. I miss chatting with my mom. She passed away in 2010. I still miss her every day. Often I see her in my dreams. She was everything for me. I absolutely loved her more than myself. I learned from her to be persistent whatever I am doing. I learned from her how to love a city. Izmir is in my heart, where I was born and raised. Mom adored Izmir, she was a true Izmir lover. She lived most of her life in there. She taught me to stand up for myself. She showed me how to be Izmirian and a world citizen. I love traveling. I feel happy when I am flying to far places. Those are the times I remember how mom used to sing when she was happy. In her spotless clean kitchen, cooking fantastic pastries for the family, singing happy and cheerful songs. Priceless memories of my life.

Today I listened Semiramis Pekkan’s song on YouTube and remembered these beautiful childhood memories.

Olmaz Olmaz Bu İş Olamaz

her güzele koşma demedim mi
her tatlı söze kanma demedim mi
aldatır seni inanma demedim mi
olmaz olmaz bu iş olamaz
hiç yalvarma bu iş olamaz
bu kadar çapkın olma demedim mi
göğsünü böyle açma demedim mi
gözler manali süzme demedim mi
çalım satma bu iş olamaz
hiç yalvarma bu iş olamaz
el oğlu bakmaz gözün yaşına
ne işler açar sonunda başına
kimseler koşmaz imdadina
pişman olur dönersin bana
bu kadar çapkın olma demedim mi
her güzele koşma demedim mi
aldatır seni inanma demedim mi
olmaz olmaz bu iş olamaz
hiç yalvarma bu iş olamaz
