Lyrics of Jan Jan

How can I stay? When you are away What can I say? If ya gonna tell me nothing How can I smile? When you are alone How can I be without me? Without me you cannot be Can’t you see? We aren’t free Fixed like a tree To the holy ground With my sound I’ll be always around I wanna dance don’t you stand Sister, give me hand. Everybody move your body We are dancing NOR PAR /JAN JAN/ Everybody must be ready Jumpin up with NOR PAR /JAN JAN/ Պար գարունքի, պար ծաղկունքի, Մեծ հույսերի, Նոր կյանքի, Նոր պարը փառքի, Թող հոգին գովերգի Մեր լեռների, ձորերի պարը չի մարի: Հեյ, արի պարը պարենք Արի, արի ջան ջան Հայ պարերին ջան ասենք 2 times Արի յար, Արի ջան ջան NOR PAR /JAN JAN/ NOR PAR /JAN JAN/ Let the music make you raise your hand Sister here we go and Everybody move your body We are dancing NOR PAR “JAN JAN” Everybody must be ready Jumpin up with NOR PAR “JAN JAN”
