    3al lal 7ub fi 5afi sababi (about the love in my young .... ???? what is 5afi ?? )

    rais al mal ya 7abibi isma3 calami (rais = head almal=the property rais al mal = the head of the property .. is that like mu5tar ? isma3 calami =here my words)
    6aba3 al me7iba ,6aba3 al me7iba ( 6aba3 = ? me7iba= love)
    sahir fil lile al aswad , sali bil 7ubi ( lile al aswad = the dark night ?? , i'm happy in my love)
    kun isma3 al banat , wfa ma dunya (go here the girls ,wfa ma dunya =?)
    mn yidri al jawab , mn ya3alimna ( who will know al jawab=? and who will teach as )
    ya malka rigal , 6aigi lak gamal (????????)

    really ??? maybe I wrote the words wrong , did you try to listen to the song ,
    notice that it's Yemenite arabic only when the right guy sings ,
    when the left guy sings it's Hebrew
