Ball, ball, snowball, it snows
It is cold, it is winter
The boundless cold, makes our bodies tremble
When it snows,
The trees become white
Playing in the lanes give us happiness and clearness
In winter, the heater is always turned on
We should wear warm cloths, it is the time to catch cold.
Goole, goole barf miad
Sarde hava, zemestoone
Sarmaye behadde hava tane adamo milarzoone
Barf ke miad az asemoon
Sefid mishan derakhtchehaa
Shadi dare, saffa dare bazi tooye koochehaa
Vaghti zemestoon mirese, hamash bokhari roushaneh
Bayad pooshid lebaase garm ke vaghte sarma khordane.
"kh" is a velar sound, like Spanish "j" or Scottish "ch" in "loch"
"gh" is a voiced velar sound, the one made when gargling.
