Machine Man


Machine man ra miofte
Zood, zood, zood
Az poshte oon biroon miad
Dood, dood, dood
Jelow boro, jelow boro
Bas, bas, bas
Ra baste shod, ra basteh shod
Ye boogh bezan , boogh, boogh, boogh

"gh" is a voiced velar sound, the one made when gargling.

Farsi is the name in Persian for the modern Persian language.

Comments

Here's the computerized text: (we apologize if it doesn't display properly on your screen):

ماشین من

ماشین من راه می افته
زود، زود، زود
از پشت اون بیرون میاد
دود، دود، دود
جلو برو، جلو برو
بس، بس، بس
راه بسته شد، راه بسته شد
یه بوق بزن بوق، بوق، بوق
