A goodnight song for my friends!

I feel somehow “arabic” tonight – so I put this song of which I don’t understand nearly anything at all – but I just love the wonderful sound of the language! And I will try to understand a bit more one day… I’m working on it :))

Ce soir je me sens très proche à mes ami(e)s arabophones et arabophiles…

Massaa el-kheyr wa massaa ennoor wa layla saida!

Souad massi – RAOUI

A’Hki ya raoui ‘Hki ‘Hkaya
madabik tkoun riwaya

‘HKili Âla alef lila w’lila
wa Âla loundja bent el ghoula
wa Âla wlid es’soltane

‘Hadjitek madjitek
Eddina bÂid m’had eddenya
‘Hadjitek madjitek
Koul wa’Hed mena f’Qalbou ‘Hkaya
Koul wa’Hed mena f’Qalbou ‘Hkaya

A’Hki we’nssa beli ‘Hna kbar
Fi balek kelli ‘Hna sghar
Ou namnou koul ‘Hkaya

‘Hkina Â’l djenna ‘Hkina Âla nar
wa Âla ettir elli Âomrou ma tar
Fahemna maÂna eddenia

‘Hadjitek madjitek
Eddina bÂid m’had eddenya

Koul wa’Hed mena f’Qalbou ‘Hkaya
Koul wa’Hed mena f’Qalbou ‘Hkaya

a’Hki ya raoui kima ‘Hkawlek

Khalina fi kan ya ma kan

Koul wa’Hed mena f’Qalbou ‘Hkaya
Koul wa’Hed mena f’Qalbou ‘Hkaya
