Ana Kull Magul El Toba

Every Time I Say Never Again

Al Amoura CD

Music from Outi presents Al Amoura
Oriental Dance Music

Orginally sung by Abdel Halim Hafez

Ana kull magul el toba, ya boya
Every time I say never again, oh my father
Termeny el magader, ya 'ain
Fate throws me back, oh my eyes
Wahshany ayona el soda, ya boya
I miss his black eyes, oh my father
Wemdowbny el hanen, ya 'ain
I'm melting for longing, oh my eyes

Repeat chorus

Metgarb w el layali, ya boya
Being away, the nights, oh my father
mush saybany fe hali, ya 'ain
don't leave me alone, oh my eyes
Wala ader tol ghebitko, ya boya
And as long as you are away, oh my father
Yashrab min bahr teni, ya 'ain
I can't drink from another sea, oh my eyes

Repeat chorus

Yarmosh qetalh wa garha, ya boya
Her eyelashes kill and hurt, oh my father
wayoun haimana wa serha, ya 'ain
and my eyes are lost in dreaming, oh my eyes
Addiki omri behalu, ya boya
I give you all my life, oh my father
wa edini inti el farha, ya 'ain
and you give me happiness, oh my eyes

Repeat chorus

I'm very grateful for all my friends, who helped me to translate the lyrics of this song. None of my friends is a professional Arabic-English translator: some of them are fluent in Arabic, some in English and a few - my self included - have some skill in both languages. It's often quite challenging to express both the idea and the literal meaning of the lyrics in a few words, as I consider it most useful to dancers that the translation include both these aspects.
