Ana 'olti la bouya w shurt 3aley

I spoke to my father and insisted on him
yiddini miyya w 3ashr gneh
to give me a hundred and ten guineas
w yigbli n7as w'il tisht 3aley
And to get me brass, and the basin is on him
w il srir w'il l7af w'il kannaba 3ley
And the bed and cover and sofa are on him
w ana 3ayza babour wil 7assira 3aley
And I want a stove and the straw mat is on him
w habibi yi rosho il ward 3aley
And my darling, to shower him with rose petals

I told my parents to approve of him

Or he will get me a horse and kidnap me on it
w ntir w ntir
And we'll fly and fly
w il ba2i 3aley
And the rest is on him
w y gib kirdan w il damgha 3aley
And he'll get me a necklace with the wax still on it
w'il khatem ismi w ismo 3aley
And the ring with my name and his name on it
w'arga3 w'ana katba ktabi 3aley
And I'll return having gotten married to him

O mother Na3ima, tell 3alewa to call me!

Repeat


Khali 3alewa yikalamni!
