Kan Ani Noladti



Here is my home, here I was born
On the plain which is by the shore.
Here are the friends who I grew up with
And I have no other place in the world.
I have no other place in the world.

Here is my home, here I played
In the lowland which is near the mountain.
Here I drank water from the well
And planted grass in the desert.
And planted grass in the desert.

Chorus:
Here I was born.
Here my children were born to me.
Here I built my house - with my own two hands.
Here, you're also with me
And here are all of my thousand friends.
And after 2,000 years -
My wanderings are over.

Here I played all of my songs
And went on a night journey.
Here in my youth I defended
The land of my God.
The land of my God.

(Chorus)

Here I set my table.
A piece of bread, a fresh flower.
I opened the door for my neighbors
And whoever comes, we'll greet “Ahalan!*”
And whoever comes, we'll greet “Ahalan!”

(Chorus)
