    Default Jafra wya harraba3

    Hi,

    Could someone translate into english the Palestinian song Jafra ?

    Thanks in advance



    جفرا ويا الربع بين البساتين
    مجروح جرح الهوا يا مين يداويني
    ويا حاملة جريتك ميلي واسقيني
    بلكي التم الجرح من شربة الميا

    جفرا وهي يا الربع ونقول استنوني
    ما بنسى اقطاف الشجر وحبات الزيتوني
    مابنسى منسف هلي وخبزات الطابوني
    مهباج دق القوي وسهرات الليلية

    والبنت تقول لاميها يمة بدي مية
    عشرين من اهل البلد وعشرين غربية
    وعشرين يلمو الحطب وعشرين للميا
    وعشرين يدقو الكحل تكحل عينيا

    Hi,

    Since no one translated it, I did it myself


    Jafra w ya harraba3 bayn elbasateeni//Oh my friends, Jafra is among the groves
    majrou7 jer7 elhawa ya men iedaweeni//I was hurt by love. Ah who will take care of me?
    Ya 7amli jarridich mili w es2eeni//Oh water seller come to quench my thirst.
    Balki eltam eljare7 men shourbet elmaya//I wish the wound would be healed by a sip of water

    Jafra w ya harrab3 w et2oul estanouni//Oh my friends, Jafra is telling us : wait for me
    Ma bansa a2taf esh shajar w 7abbat ezzaytouni//I won't forget to pick the olives from the olive trees
    Ma bansa mansaf hali w khoubzat ettabouni//I will not forget to eat lamb with dry curd and bread
    Mehbaj da2 el2aouy w sahrat ellaylya//And the beats of the coffee pestle and the parties

    W elbint ta2oul lammiha youma beddi miy//And the young woman said: Mom I want 100 dinars
    3ashreen men ahl elbalad w 3ashreen ghourbiy//20 of the villagers and 20 of those who emigrated
    W 3ashreen yelmou el7atab w 3ashreen lelmaya//20 to buy firewood and another 20 to buy water
    W 3ashreen yedi2ou chi77al tacha77al 2aynaya//And 20 to buy eye liner to have my eyebrows threaded
