فيروز – يا عاقد الحاجبين Fairuz O Tall-browed One

English Lyrics:

O tall-browed one
What’s on your forehead drives me crazy

If you intended to kill me
You killed me twice… you killed me twice

The gazelles come (i.e. his eyes) to leap among the paths and around me
And I didn’t set up my window and prepare my eyes… and prepare my eyes

It looks like you see me and your eyes fill mine
And my actions are like yours, woe to me one of two assassins
O my guardian! I was only kept alive by two glances
I fear the rhymes will call to you in the two easts… to you in the two easts

 

:عربي

يا عاقد الحاجبين

على الجبين اللُجين

إن كنت تقصد قتلي

قتلتني مرتينِ

تمرّ قَفْزَ غزالٍ

بين الرصيف وبيني

وما نَصَبْتُ شباكي

ولا أذِنْتُ لِعيني

تبدو كأنْ لا تَرَانِي

ومِلْءُ عينِكَ عيني

ومثل فعلك فعلي

وَيْلِي من الأحْمَقَينِ

مولايَ لم تُبْقِ منّي

حيّاً سوى رَمَقينِ

أخافُ تدعو القوافي

عليك في المشرقينِ
