like father like son
Explanation:

The correct phrase in Albana should be:
"beme baba te te ngjaj!"

The sentences is used in South Albania (Toske) and has an idiomatic meaning "like father like son". A verbatim translation lose its meaning, however it is as follows :"create me father to resemble you".
