Georgian song – Khasanbegura

Khasan-beg Tavdgiridze who rejected God
Sought the Turkish title of pasha, completely forgetting God.
He entered Shekvetili, crying in Turkish, “I have come.”
We’ll allow him to pass as far as Lanchkhuti,
Then let him see what we do.
We are Gurians. We had a battle near Shukhutperdi.

We defeated the enemy leaving no one to tell
the tale.
I saw my brother, Khasan-pasha, beheaded.
As he was my brother, I cried out, “Woe is me!”
The previous night he had fought us, snaring
himself in the process.
Because he was my brother, I buried him.

And here it is being performed on youtube.
