Ata sözü

Had several interesting conversations lately about the Azerbaijani language. Lots to share. I'll start with this new couplet of ata sözü -

Dişin ağrıyır,
Çək, qurtar!

Qonşun pisdir,
Köç, qurtar!

My translation - 

If you teeth hurt, pull them and be done with it!
If your neighbors are bad, move and save yourself from them!
