alirsin - from almak (second person present simple)

Hangi kitaptan ezber bu

You've got a problem, not me
I deserve much more
From which book did you memorise this
Blah blah blah ah bleugh bleugh bleugh
Not sure what this -miş/mış suffix is meant to mean.
boyan - apparently boyanmak (cognate to Serbian boja - colour) means to put on make up or be painted, so I'm not sure why it's that and not boyamak (to paint) given the English translation

voron wrote:Miş is used in its primary meaning here as the periphrastic suffix. I'd translate it as:
(You say that) the problem is not with me but with you
(You say that) I deserve better than that
Which book did you memorize it from
You say this and you say that.
(I'd spell the last line as "miş miş miş de muş muş muş", where "de" is a connector similar to "ve")

The subject comes after the verb.

I knew الوداع but not اندیشہ, thanks.

EDIT: Then again, I don't think I hear it all that much in Persian, either, since both languages also have خدا, which I'm pretty sure I've heard more often in both.
