    Default Need lyrics to "Abdo Habib Ghandoura" (3bdo Habib Ghandourah)

    I have the melody for a songbok I purchased in a book from Maqam.com but need the lyrics. I need to sing it for an Arabic class in about two weeks. The title is عبدو خابب غندوةشة "Abdo Habib Ghandoura." There is a YouTube video of a B&W musical at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPXFq7s3Z1U&NR=1. I am looking for the more complete lyrics performed by abdullahminawi at YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWCn7...eature=related. If available, I prefer the lyrics بالعربي. Arabic to English translation would be nice but is not as important. Some history of its origin would also be appreciated but is not necessary.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    عبدو حابب غنـدورة

    وغيرا ما بـدُّو

    وهي غندورة مقفورة

    علقـانة بعبـدو

    ****

    انبارح لما شافا جاية عالكرمات

    ومالت حد شفافا نسمة من النسمات

    صار يغني وصار يدور

    وصوتو عمَّيفيض سرور

    ويسأل وينو هالناطور تيروح لعندو

    عبدو حابب غندورة..



    ومرَّة طلبت منو قدام الأصحاب

    أنو يظهر فنو وعبدو سبع الغاب

    فزّ بقوِّة عالبستان

    وصار يتعمشق بالأغصان

    وقبع زرعات الجيران بِقوِّة زندو



    يعني عبدو بدعة وحبو مالو قياس

    رح يهجم عالضيعة ويضرب كل الناس

    وبتغني الضيعة وطيورا

    وتقول الغابة ونمورا

    فليحيا عبدو

    عبدو حابب غنـدورة
    3abdo 7abeb ghandoura
    Abdo is fallen in love for Ghandoura
    وغيرا ما بـدُّو
    W ghayra ma beddou
    And he doesn't want anybody else
    وهي غندورة مقفورة
    W hiya ghandoura ma2foura
    She is a stubborn lovely girl
    علقـانة بعبـدو
    3al2ane ba3abdo
    attached herself to Abdou


    انبارح لما شافا جاية عالكرمات
    Embare7 lamma shafa jayi 3alkermat
    yesterday when he saw her, coming to the vineyard
    ومالت حد شفافا نسمة من النسمات
    W malet 7ad shfafa nasme min nasmat
    And a soft breeze touched her lips
    صار يغني وصار يدور
    Sar yeghani w sar yedour
    He began to sing and began to whirl
    وصوتو عمَّيفيض سرور
    W sawtou 3am yefeed srour
    And with a voice overflowing with pleasure
    ويسأل وينو الناطور تيروح لعندو
    W yesa2al weynou ennatour tayerou7 la3andou
    He asks : where is that vineyard keeper ? I'm going to meet her


    ومرَّة طلبت منو قدام الأصحاب
    W marraa talbet minou edam elas7ab
    She once asked him in front of the friends
    أنو يظهر فنو وعبدو سبع الغاب
    ennou yezher fannou w 3abdo saba3 elghab
    To show his talent to act : Abdo the lion of the forest
    فزّ بقوِّة عالبستان
    Fazz ib2wi 3albestan
    He leapt with vigor over the garden
    وصار يتعمشق بالأغصان
    W sar yet3amsha2 belaghsan
    And began to climb through the branches
    وقبع زرعات الجيران بِقوِّة زندو
    W 2aba3 zara3at eljiran be2ou zendou
    by the force of his forearm and he penetrated into the neighbours' plantations


    يعني عبدو بدعــة ، حبـّو مالو قياس
    ye3ni 3abdou bed3a , 7ebbou malou 2yas
    That is to say Abdo is a unusual person, his love has no criterion
    رح يهجم عالضيعة ، و يضرب كل الناس
    Ra7 yehjoum 3adday3a w yedroub kill ennas
    he will attack the village and hit all the people
    لازم يتجوز غندورة
    lazem yetjaouaz ghandoura
    It's necessary he merries Ghandoura
    و تروق الحالة مقفورة
    W etrou2 el7ale ma2foura
    For the situation to settle down
    و تغني الضيعة و طيورا
    W etghani edday3a w tyoura
    And the village and its birds will sing :
    فليحيا عبدو
    falyhya 3abdou
    Long live Abdo !
