Eartha Kitt

Eartha Mae Kitt (January 17, 1927 – December 25, 2008) was an American singer, actress, and cabaret star. She was perhaps best known for her highly distinctive singing style and her 1953 hit recordings of "C'est Si Bon" and the enduring Christmas novelty smash "Santa Baby". Orson Welles once called her the "most exciting woman in the world." She took over the role of Catwoman for the third and final season of the 1960s Batman television series, replacing Julie Newmar, who was unavailable due to other commitments. She also voiced Yzma on Disney's The Emperor's New Groove. more »

Üsküdar'a gider iken aldi da bir yagmur 2x
Kâtibimin setresi uzun, etegi çamur 2x
Kâtip uykudan uyanmis, gözleri mahmur 2x
Kâtip benim, ben kâtibin, ele karisir?
Kâtibime siter eter faltu ne güzel yarasir 

Uskadara is a little town in Turkey
And in the old days, many women had male secretaries
Oh, well, that's Turkey!

Üsküdar'a gider iken bir mendil buldum 2x
Mendilimin içine lokum doldurdum 2x

They take a trip from Uskudara in the rain
And on the way they fall in love
He's wearing a stiff collar
In a full dress suit
She looks at him longingly through her veil
And casually feeds him candy
Oh, those Turks !

Kâtibimi arar iken yanimda buldum 2x
Kâtip benim, ben kâtibin, el ne karisir? 
Kâtibime kolali da gömlek ne güzel yarasir 

Kâtibimi arar iken yanimda buldum 2x
Kâtip benim, ben kâtibin, el ne karisir? 
Kâtibime kolali da gömlek ne güzel yarasir 2x
