دس دسی باباش میاد
صدای کفش پاش میاد
دس دسی ننه اش میاد
با هر دو تا ممه اش میاد
دس دسی عموش میاد
با جیب پرلیموش میاد
دس دسی خاله اش میاد
با دهن گاله اش میاد
Hand, hand, his/her* father is coming.
You can hear his shoes sound.
Hand, hand, his/her mother is coming.
With her two breasts is coming.
Hand, hand his/her uncle is coming
With lemons in his packet is coming.
Hand, hand, his/her aunt is coming.
With her wide mouth is coming!
* Fatima says, "In Persian we do not have female or male pronouns."
Das dasi babash miyad.
Sedaye kafshe pash miyad.
Das dasi nanash miyad.
Ba har do ta mamash miyad.
Das dasi amoosh miyad.
Ba jibe por limoosh miyad.
Das dasi khalash miyad.
Ba dahane galash miyad!
This is a song sung when the baby starts to sit: in this case, the mother or father (or anybody) puts the child on their knees and the baby can lean to his/her Mom's or Dad's body. Mom or Dad takes his/her hands and starts to applause with the baby's hands and while applauding with the baby's hands, Mom or Dad starts to sing this song.
