Salma Ya Salama | سالمة يا سلامة

OriginalTransliteration
في الدنيا الكبيرة
و بلادها الكتيرة
لفيت لفيت لفيت
و لما ناداني حبي الأولاني
سبت كله و جيت و جيت
و فحضنه إترميت
و غنيت
سالمة يا سلامة
رحنا و جينا بالسلامة
سالمة يا سلامة
رحنا و جينا بالسلامة
لسة الحب صافي
و لسة الجو دافي
و لسة فيه قمر
و بعد المغارب
نتلملم في قارب
و يطول السهر السهر
و السمر و الغنى كلنا
سالمة يا سلامة
رحنا و جينا بالسلامة
سالمة يا سلامة
رحنا و جينا بالسلامة
فيه شجرة جوا
جنينة عليها علامة
أنا ياما كنت بفكر فيها
و بسأل ياما
يا ترى موجودة
و قلبي محفوظ فيها
أيوة موجودة
و قلبي محفوظ فيها
سالمة يا سلامة
رحنا و جينا بالسلامة
سالمة يا سلامة
رحنا و جينا بالسلامة

Translation Salma ya Salama

Versions: #1#2
In the big world
And its many countries
I turned around, turned around (the world)
And when my first love called me
I left everything and came back
And i throw myself in his lap
And sang
Salma ya Salama
We went away and got back safely
Salma ya Salama
We went away and got back safely
The love is still pure
And the weather is still warm
And the moon is still here
And after the sunset
we gather in a little boat
And our night will be long
And the fun, the sining too….. together:
Salma ya Salama
We went away and got back safley
Salma ya Salama
We went and got back safley
There is a tree in
A garden with a mark on it
I always thought about it and wondered
If it’s still there and my heart is engraved on it
yes! it’s still there and my heart is engraved on it!
