Биё Бирақсем (Let’s dance)

This is Madina’s hit from 2019.

Ишқи ман биё бирақсем, ки ҳануз ними шаб аст.
Ишки ман биё бирақсем, ки ҳануз ними шаб аст.
Хуши имшаби мо, танҳо рақс аст рақс,
Хуши имшаби мо, танхо рақс аст рақс.

Биё ей моҳру бо ҳам бирақсем,
Ки дорам орузу бо ҳам бирақсем. [х2]

Ниҳоли боғи умедам туи, ту!
Биё ей ишқ ба даргоҳам бирақсем, [х2]

Ишқи ман,
Ишқи ман биё бирақсем, ки ҳануз ними шаб аст,
Ишқи ман биё бирақсем, ки ҳануз ними шаб аст.
Хуши имшаби мо, танҳо рақс аст рақс, [х2]

Биё ей моҳру бо ҳам бирақсем,
Ки дорам орузу бо ҳам бирақсем. [х2]

Азизам бо ғуруру шодмони,
Ба таври соғару мино бирақсем. [х2]

Ишқи ман,
Ишқи ман биё бирақсем, ки ҳануз ними шаб аст,
Ишқи ман биё бирақсем, ки ҳануз ними шаб аст.
Хуши имшаби мо, танҳо рақс аз рақс, [х4]

 

Ай ёр ёр (Hey Sweetheart)

This is Madina’s first hit.

Шинам сари санг ҷои туро ёд кунам, ҳе-е-ей!
Оям ба гузаргоҳи ту фарёд кунам, ҳе-е-ей!
Фарёд кунам агар ҷавобам надиҳи
Хоки сияҳам бар сари худ бод кунам, ҳе-е-ей!

Ҷонона баҳор шудаст, ту кай меои, ҳе-е-ей?
Вақти гул хор шудаст, ту кай меои, ҳе-е-ей?
Ай ёр ёр ёри мане [4x]

Сари кӯят давивам
Туро дар ханда дидам
Гули шодӣ бичидам
Ай ёр ёр ёри мане [2x]

Ай ёр ёр ёри мане [4x]

Медонам аз ҷавонӣ
Як ҳикмати ҷаҳонӣ
Бе об хаёт набошад
Бе ишқ зиндагонӣ

Ай ёр ёр ёри мане [4x]
