Atal matal

Atal matal tootoole
Govee Hasan che joore?
Na shir dare na pestoon!
Shiresho bordan hendestoon
Ye zane Kordi bestoon
Esmesho bezar am-qezi!
Doure kolash ghermezi
Hachin o wachin
Ye pato varchin!

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

Hasan: a name for men, originally it is an Arabic name.
Am-qezi: an imaginary old name for women.

Comments

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

اتل متل

اتل متل توتوله
گاو حسن چه جوره؟
نه شیر داره نه پستون
شیرشو بردن هندستون
یه زن کردی بستون
اسمشو بزار عم قزی
دور کلاش قرمزی
هاچین و واچین
یه پاتو ورچین
