    Default Natacha Atlas & Hossam Ramzy - Habibe

    I have been trying to work this song out using very, very limited knowledge of Arabic, but Egyptian Arabic is too hard for me. If anyone can help me translate it into English that would be very nice.

    I have written it out phonetically in the Roman alphabet. Most of these are probably not even close and are not real words.

    Yah habibi
    Ya leiley, ya
    Ya leiley ya
    Yah habibi
    Ya leiley, ya leiley
    Yah habibi
    Yah habibi
    Yah se ebni wa ana ah wahdi…

    Habib wah yownon
    Habib wah omren
    Akhba' tu hegbhou ghairy
    Habib weh youmnon
    Habib weh omren
    Akhba'tu hegbhou ghairy.
    Meidei tu omri
    Ana wakaldi
    Fi habib.
    Meidei tu omri
    Ana wakaldi
    Fi habib.

    O Habib wah yowman
    Habib wah omran
    Akhba'tu ahegbhou ghairy
    Habib wah yownan
    Habib wah omran
    Akhba'tu ahegbhou ghairy.
    Meidei tu omri
    Ana wakalbi
    Fi habib.

    Meidei tu omri,
    Ana wakalbi
    (Fi habib...)

    This part is very indistinct:
    (Whodan hukkan furr….
    Awa, awa…
    Fi andayni minhel…
    Aya...
    Voh...)

    O araf tu haza
    Walam astadeia
    Ini ansa'
    Araf tu haza
    Walam akhaday
    Ini ansa'.
    (Ya lei…)
    Walaf tu haza
    Walam asta dai
    (Ya lei…)
    Ini ansa'.
    Walaf tu haza
    Walam asta dai
    Ini ansa'. (I forget)
    Ruba kan howbi heza zaman
    Ruba kan howbi heza zaman.
    Ruba kan howbi heza zaman.
    Allah
    Ah Ruba…
    Allah
    Ane min...

    Hmm I seem to have scared everyone away with my poor transliteration skills
