Jbeineh

Lyrics by Hussein Al-Barghouty

O’ you flying birds 

On the hills so high

O’ you flying bird 

On the hills so high

Tell my mother and father, 

Jerusalem is a nurturer

Nurturing Geese! And walks with pride

And sleeps under the Dahlia…

 

What's wrong with resistance and us

We want to keep our families alive, 

What's wrong with resistance and us

We want to keep our families alive, 

And who ever sold himself is sold 

And whoever is hungry, they got their arms... 

And who ever sold himself is sold 

And whoever is hungry, they got their arms...

What's up with you and what's up with her?

Her omen is on her, 

What's up with you and what's up with her?

Her omen is on her, 

Resistant though she is naked, 

Resistant though she is naked,

What's wrong with resistance and us

We want to keep our families alive, 

What's wrong with resistance and us

We want to keep our families alive, 

And who ever sold himself is sold 

And whoever is hungry, they got their arms... 

And who ever sold himself is sold 

And whoever is hungry, they got their arms...

What's up with you and what's up with her?

Her omen is on her, 

What's up with you and what's up with her?

Her omen is on her, 

Resistant though she is naked, 

Resistant though she is naked,

 

Oh the flying bird,

On the hills so high,

Oh the flying bird,

On the hills so high,

Tell my mother and father (Jbeineh) is awake! 

She is eating almonds and wants nuts! 

Tell her it's all in health and wellness

 

Sleeping alert, 

Awake barefoot,

Sleeping alert, 

Awake barefoot,  

Under the moon 

In between the trees, in the hyenas eyes, above the spring!

What's wrong with the hyena and her? Her omen is on her!

What's wrong with the hyena and her? Her omen is on her!

It's okay, what happened? Freedom is a lit fire

It's okay, it's not embarrassing,  her excuse is next to the wolf. 

Who is it gonna hit, freedom beside the channel of water

Who is it gonna hit, freedom beside the channel of water

Sleeping alert, 

Awake barefoot,

Sleeping alert, 

Awake barefoot,  

Under the moon 

In between the trees, in the hyenas eyes, above the spring!

What's wrong with the hyena and her? Her omen is on her!

What's wrong with the hyena and her? Her omen is on her!

It's okay, what happened? Freedom is a lit fire

It's okay, it's not embarrassing,  her excuse is next to the wolf. 

Who is it gonna hit, freedom beside the channel of water

Who is it gonna hit, freedom beside the channel of water

 

O’ you flying birds 

On the hills so high

O’ you flying bird 

On the hills so high

Tell my mother and father, 

Jerusalem is a nurturer

Nurturing Geese! And walks with pride

And sleeps under the Dahlia

And sleeps under the Dahlia
