"Yassassin (Turkish for "Long Live")" is a song written by David Bowie in 1979 for the album Lodger. "Yassassin" is an incongruous reggae song with a Turkish flavour, and the third single to be released from Lodger, but only in the Netherlandsmarker and Turkeymarker.

The actual Turkish verb used to wish someone a long life is spelled 'yaşasın' ( ), which comes from the verbal root 'yaşa-' 'live' with the third-person imperative ending; therefore 'yaşasın' literally means 'May he or she live'.
