Küçələrə su səpmişəm,
Yar gələndə toz olmasın
Elə gəlsin, elə getsin,
Aramızda söz olmasın.
Samovara od salmışam.
İstəkənə qət salmışam.
Yarım gedib tək qalmışam.
Nə əzizdir yarın canı,
Nə şirindir yarın canı.
Samavarı alışdırın,
Maşa gətdim qarışdırn
Küsülüyüx barışdırın
Nə əzizdir yarın canı,
Nə şirindir yarın canı.
Piyalələr irəfdədir
Hər biri bir tərəfdədir
Görməmişəm bir həftədir
Nə gözəldir yarın canı,
Nə şirindir yarın canı.

. آهنگ "کوچه لره سو سَپمیشم" از آهنگ های قدیمی آذری است که رشید بهبودف آن را باز خوانی کرده

کوچه ها را آب و جارو کرده ام کوچه هارا آب و جارو کرده ام وقتی یار می آید گرد و خاک نشود طوری بیاید و برود که بین ما حرفی ( دلگیری ) نباشد ... داخل سماور آتش انداخته ام داخل استکان قند انداخته ام یارم رفته تنها مانده ام چه عزیز است جان یارم چه شیرین است جان یارم ... سماور را روشن کنید ماشا آورده ام ( زغال را ) به هم بزنید با هم قهریم آشتی مان بدهید چه عزیز است جان یارم چه شیرین است جان یارم ... پیاله ها در تاقچه اند هرکدام در یک طرفند یار را ندیده ام یک هفته است چه زیباست جان یارم چه شیرین است جان یارم

Rashi Behbudov
Rashid Behbudov (Azerbaijani: Rəşid Məcid oğlu Behbudov, رشید بهبوداوف; an Azerbaijani singer and actor. He sang in Azerbaijani, Russian, Persian, Turkish, Hindi, Armenian, Urdu and Bengali among other languages.
Rashid Behbudov was born in Tiflis Tbilisi, Georgia in 1915 (died in 1989). His father, Majid Behbudov was a singer as well. In 1938-1944, Rashid worked at Yerevan State Philharmonia and Opera House, and in 1945, upon the invitation of Tofig Guliyev, Rashid Behbudov moved to Baku. In a short time, Behbudov became also prominent Azerbaijani pop singer. His combination of vocal masterpieces ranged from classical performances to lyrical songs. Behbudov's rare vocal talent gave him opportunity to travel beyond the "Iron Curtain" of the Soviet Union, and as a singer he toured with concert performances in several countries of the world, including Iran, Turkey, China, India, Japan, Argentina, and many other countries in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
In 1966, he created the State Song Theater, which still carries his name, and became its soloist and artistic manager.
Rashid was almost 30 years old when he was chosen to perform the lead role of Asgar. It was the third time a film had been made The Cloth Peddler ("Arshin Mal Alan") – used In „Sari Galin Cafe”, based on the music comedy by Uzeyir Hajibeyov (1885–1948). Asgar was the rich merchant, who disguised himself as a cloth peddler just to get the chance to enter the courtyards of homes so that he could catch a glimpse of all the pretty young women and choose one for his bride. This version of the movie came at the end of World War II and was so successful that it not only made Rashid famous, but it won Hajibeyov the coveted Stalin Prize.The film turned out to be so successful that it was shown in more than 25 countries.
Rashid often performed in the Near East. In Iran, he was accompanied by the pianist Chingiz Sadikhov and tar player Ahsan Dadashov. They were so popular that their two-week tour in Iran stretched into two months.
It was Rashid's dream to create a place in Azerbaijan specifically designated as a Song Theater. Prior to the Soviet occupation, Baku already had an Opera and Ballet Theater, a Philharmonic Hall, a Comedy Theater and various other buildings dedicated to various genres of music, but nowhere was there a home for the genre of popular music.
Behbudov was already an established musician when he decided to undertake this project. He envisioned each song as a mini-spectacle with its own heroes, theme and development and he went in search of a worthy setting where the dramatic aspects of these popular songs could be dramatically presented. Creating the Song Theater became a pet project for him. He was very proud of it and spent a great deal of energy, anxiety and time on the conversion of a pre-Soviet Jewish synagogue into the Song Theater. Simultaneously, he worked on creating a professional music group that would be associated with the theater.
