W Rabbena Al Ma'bud

The God We Are Believing In

Music by Mohamed Abdel Mona'em

* W rabbena al ma'bud
By the God we are believein
ahla min el bid wel sood.
you are more beautiful than any blond or dark (woman).
Ya om milaya samra
Oh the one with black milaya
malfufa 'ala ahla 'aoud.
wrapped around the best figure.

Yaghti esmalla 'aleki
Sister, may God protect you
mafish walla ghalta fiiki.
as there is nothing wrong in you.
Aghtim w absum w amdi
By stamp and finger print and signature
en mafish zay 'aineki.
there aren't eyes like yours.

** Ba'shqik ya baiada
I adore (more than love) you, oh blond one
bahebik hob 'abada.
I love you with the love of the God.
Di el ahwa mingher sukkar
This coffee without sugar
min idik tibqa zieda.
from your hands will be like the sweetest one.

Wishik zai el hariir
Your face is like silk
eshta w aleha zibiib.
cream topped with raisins.
Da inti el shahaada lilah
By witnessing to the God
mafikish ai 'aib.
there aren't any mistakes in you.
* repeat

Ana waqe'a fi 'ardik
I need your help
waqe'a fi toolik.
need help from all of you.
Taghti omri kullu minni bas atoolik.
Take all my life from me but be mine.
Da inti nimra wahed
You are number one
mafish ai wahed.
there is no other.
Haihebbik zai ma ana bahebik.
No one will love you like I do.
Hobbik feya beitmada
Your love just grows.
** repeat

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 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 the dancers that the translation include both these aspects.
