ah ya leil ah ya leil

leily leily leila
ah ya leil 2x

eh ya3ni gharamak wa da3ny

What does it mean (as in 'so what') that your love bid me farewell?

eh ya3ni fare2ny wala rga3ly 2x

And (so what) that you are leaving me or coming back to me?

(this is defiant - she's asking him who he thinks he is)

leh fakkar enn eddounya fi bo3dak

do you think my world revolves around you being here or not?

mabhash wala ablak wala ba3dak

And do you think there are no others before you or after you (arabic expression: you think you're the only one in the world?)

ana beek min gheerak mush far2a

with or with out you i don't care

oudamak aho lissa baghany

and in front of you here i am still singing:

eh ya3ni gharamak wa da3ny

What does it mean (as in 'so what') that your love bid me farewell?

eh ya3ni fare2ny wala rga3ly 2x

And (so what) that you are leaving me or coming back to me?

(she doesn't care either way)



ah ya leil ah ya leil.....

(vocalising - oh night)

eb3ad wi hogour ya anany

go away and leave you selfish one

ana 3arfa haterga3 tany 2x

I know that you'll come crawling back again!

lakin 3omry ma harga3lak

but never in MY life will i take you back!

law hatta bakeet toul 3omrak

even if you cry for the rest of your life!

eb3ad wi hogour ya anany

go away and leave you selfish one

I know that you'll come crawling back again!

ew3a la tetghar ya amary

don't get too big headed my sweet

ana alby beyehwa bi amry

my heart loves according to how i tell it

2x

wi bi amry hayib3ad 3andak

and because i tell it to stay away

khaleek 3ayeesh kidda wa7dak

you can keep living like that all alone
