    May God damn expatriation because of what it did to me
    (yel3an bay el gherbeh - "bay" means Father, but obviously "el gherbe" doesn't have a father it's just a way to express a deep dislike)

    -----------------------------------------


    الله يـ ل عن بي الغربة شو سوت بحالي

    مرا ومرملتلي البي

    وسرقت مني الغالي

    الا ما انسافر سنتين وبنرجع على الضيعة

    ضاع العمر وبعدوا حسين ما خلص هالبيعة

    ويلي ويلي ويلي

    الله يعين الي عندوا عيلي

    عايش على الشمع مهموم عم يتحمم بالكيلي

    دلي دلي دلي

    يا تعتيريى ويا ديلي شو صاير بالناس كلوا عايش بالالي

    شو مشتاء لامي وبي واختي تكوي تيابي

    اسمع شي كلمي حني تنسيني عزابس

    سافر شب وارجع شايب تا ارتاح شويا

    ارج ما بلائي الحباي شو صعبة شويا

    هي هي هي ها الدنيا هي هي

    بيجي ناس بتمشي ناس بضلها هي هي

    يمي يمي يمي مش ئادر انسا همي

    متل خيال بعمري صار وصاير عمي يمش بدمي

    ويلي ويلي

    ما بدي هالغربة راجع على الضيعة لائوني بدي اركع بوس ترابا هالارض الحنوني

    عيش بالدنيا واتهنا وضلك عايش راض راح رجعت طلعت نزلت طلعت راح تزعل

    عالفاضي

    جنة حنة حنة

    هالدني والله جنة اسمع مني وريح هالبال

    وضلك عايش متهني

    عني عني عني

    يا غربة حلي عني

    فرئتي كل الاحباب

    واخدتي الغالي مني

    جنة جنة جنة

    Hey all, nice job on lyrics but in one of the verses where it says according to you both:
    Ma baddee hel ghorbe raje3 3al day3a la touli
    Baddee erja3 bous etraba hel 2ard el 7anoune
    3eesh bhel denye w et-hana w dallak 3ayesh raadi
    Ra7et rj3et tol3et nezlet ra7 tez3al 3al faadi

    Some words are wrong its acually:
    Ma baddee hel gorbe raje3 3a day3a LE2OUNI NOT la touli
    baddeee 2ERKA3 NOT erja3 bous etraba hel 2ard el 7anoune
    3eesh bhel denye w et-hana w dallak 3ayesh raadi
    Ra7et rj3et tol3et nezlet ra7 tez3al 3al faadi.

    just thought you would like to know!

    "Da3 el 3omr w ba3dou 7sein ma khalas hel bay3a"

    I know this part literally means "and Hussein still hasn't finished his sale" thanks to your translations, but what does this mean figuratively? I don't understand the reference. Could someone please explain this?

    Shukran ktiir!

    Most people leave their countries and 'it3'arab' -> i.e go into ghorba, a state when you're out of your homeland, for the sake of making money. Here he is saying that 7sein is still 'making' money, he hasnt finished this sale and returned People tend to it3'arab and forget to come back...
