My Gross-Super-Mega-Hyper-Ultra Market Lover

Mesut Selvi 1957 (TURKEY)

As I was trying to get the meaning of the words of my tutor,
Who was saying, "Even if I was a Super-Mega-Hyper or Ultra Tutor,
It's difficult to teach real life to a pupil for a tutor."
I found myself in a market to solve the words of my tutor.

The words in my ears, I've recalled my times in university.
For good relations with people, I had educated at university.
For my thesis, from city to city, I had worked in markets.
To improve myself, I'd worked in all branches of markets.

While people were wasting money, I was thinking of my granny
And her advisory words, "Money is like a skeleton key."
I was only thinking to arrange or sell goods to earn money,
And to build my own independent happy world with that money.

You and me are sharing the same destiny among foods.
Like little babies, we're tapping, examining all those goods.
All day, we're demonstrating many devices in jungle of goods.
Being patient, careful and polite are our special moods.

We'd come across at applying of gross shop as trainee mates.
In time, we have placed loves into our hearts as ripe mates.
Now as we become "Gross-Super-Mega-Hyper-Ultra Market Lovers"
Let's be the world's first Super-Mega-Hyper-Ultra Love Tutors
