Sing with Fairouz in Arabic: Take Me My Beloved Posted by on Feb 14, 2015 in Arabic Language, Culture

Marhaba! Happy Valentine’s Day Arabic lovers! Many of you enjoyed learning how to express beautiful love expressions in Arabic! I know that many of you just adore Fairouz’s beautiful songs. Many of you Arabic lovers have reached out to express your desire to learn more of her great songs. Well, you came to the right place! As you all know, Fairouz is one of my favorite Arab artists and her voice is magnificent. She is one of the most admired musicians in the Arab world and beyond. Today, and given the fact that it’s Valentine’s Day (عيد الحب) today, I want to share with you yet another beautiful ballad by the great Fairouz! The song is called Khedni Habibi (خدني حبيبي), which means Take Me My Beloved. As always, I have added the song in the form of a YouTube video as well as the lyrics in Arabic. Similar to other musical posts, I have added the lyrics in Arabic so that you can follow and sing with Fairouz, and translated them to English so that you can learn what these beautiful lyrics mean. I’ve also added other beautiful love ballads by Fairouz so that you can equally enjoy and share them with your significant other/s on Valentine’s Day!

فيروز – خدني حبيبي
Fairouz – Take Me My Beloved

خدني ياحبيبي على بيت مالو بواب
Take me, my beloved, to a house with no doors
خدني ياحبيبي على قمر الغياب
Take me, my beloved, to a hidden moon
نساني بالغفا بأيام الصفا
Help me forget as I sleep, in pure days
تترجع الليالي ويرجعوا الأحباب
That the nights and our loved ones return
ياحبيبي .. ياحبيبي
My beloved, my beloved

خدني ولا تخدني الفرح عالطريق
Take me, joy is on the way
حبك بيحصدني وماعندك رفيق
My love for you consumes me and you don’t have a friend
يا أمير السيف وين أخدت الصيف
Oh prince of the sword, where did you take the summer?
بشوفك ومابشوفك ضايع بالضباب
I kind of see you, lost in the fog
في اميرة صغيرة نخطبت بكير
There’s a little princess who was engaged early
رميو عليها الغيرة ومابتعرف تطير
They cast jealousy upon her, and she can’t fly
سكنوها قصور خلف سبع بحور
They placed her in a castle beyond seven seas
وصغيرة الأميرة وكبيرة البواب
And the princess is tiny, and the gates are enormous

This is another beautiful love ballad by Fairouz called The People Asked Me | فيروز – سألوني الناس

About the Author: jesa

Salam everyone! Born as an American to two originally Arab parents, I have been raised and have spent most of my life in Beirut, Lebanon. I have lived my good times and my bad times in Beirut. I was but a young child when I had to learn to share my toys and food with others as we hid from bombs and fighting during the Lebanese Civil War. I feel my connection to Arabic as both a language and culture is severing and so it is with you, my readers and fellow Arabic lovers, and through you that I wish to reestablish this connection by creating one for you.

    Hi Jesa
    I love the meanings of the Arabic language, the culture and the food , I will be going to Lebanon soon to be with someone special I met over 3 years ago, can’t wait to be there . I listen to an Arabic broadcasting program with her which works in of many broadcasters of different age ( male & female) that either talk on subjects which I translate on Google or sing and even though I fully not understand the language , but I can feel it through there expression and there happiness. I really love the soft music it touches me inside. I really would like to learn more so I can speak and joy in conversations when i go to Lebanon even though they speak English also but it will be a joy to learn it . I live in NJ , is there anywhere I can go in my state to study the language better so I won’t look like a fool cuz not understanding. I know some that u have here that she taught me and other words and meanings. But I would love to read and speak the language. Btw she opens cam to show me places , and I think the churches are amazing and the sunrise and sunset WOW! I can’t wait to live there , any suggestions plz
