“I Am All Yours”; Sherine Posted by on Feb 13, 2016 in Arabic Language, Culture, Pronunciation, Vocabulary

    Ahlan, Arabic fans! Tomorrow is the 14th. Of February so Happy Valentine’s Day! On this occasion, I am presenting a beautiful love song by the Egyptian singer Sherine Abdel-Wahhab شــيــريــن عــبــد الــوهــاب. The song is entitled “أنــا كــُــلــِّــي مــِــلــكــَــك /Ana Kolli Melkak/” which translates literally as “I Am All Yours”. Nearly all Sherine’s songs are in the Egyptian slang (dialect) Arabic which may be problematic to some non-Arabic speakers.

     The song “I Am All Yours” comes as number four in Sherine’s album “أنــا كــتــيــر /Ana Keteer/“. The album was released in January, 2014 and achieved great success. The album is number six in Sherine’s artistic journey that started in 2003. The song is about 04:50 minutes long. It was written by the poet Amir Te’imah أمــيــر طــعــيــمــة and composed by Khaled Ezz خــالــد عــِــز. Sherine’s voice is very remarkable and her music is very wonderful. I did the English translation for the song and I hope you will love it.

ســَــاعــَــات بــخــيــالــي بــَــأســْــرَحْ

Sometimes in my imagination, I wander

قــبــل أمــَّــا بــَــأحــْــلــَــم
