Children’s Day: The dog wanted to fly

Çocuk günü kutlu olsun!

Since the establishment of The Grand National Assembly of Turkey on 1920, April 23, Atatürk commemorated the event by declaring the day a public holiday under the banner “Children’s Day”. William joined in the celebrations in Kadıköy…

Starting off with a couple of paintings, William soon moved on to his star performance of the song, “Köpek uçmak istemiş” (“The Dog Wanted to Fly”).

Here are the words, so you can sing along too:

Köpek uçmak istemiş, bir gün kargaya gitmiş,
Karga ona anlatmış bizimki de inanmış
Tırmanmış koşa koşa balkonun kenarına,
Açmış bacaklarını, dikmiş kulaklarını,
Havlayıp birkaç kere, atmış kendini yere,
Köpek ölmüş vah vah vah,
Karga da gülmüş ha ha ha.

and a rough translation:

The dog wanted to fly, he went one day to the crow,
Crow told him to believe in himself
He ran and climbed up the edge of the balcony,
Streched his legs, pinned back his ears,
Barking a few times, threw himself down,
The dog died woe woe woe,
The crow laughed ha ha ha.
