Lyrics by Hussein Al-Barghouty

Sleep oh love of my eyes on me
This is how the nightingale slept
Sleep mommy, a comfortable sleep
Your teeth are water or milk
Sleep oh love of my eyes on me
You are from me not weird
Sleep mommy, a comfortable sleep
Your teeth are water or milk

Why is my eye patient?
Above the slit in us.
Why is my eye blind?
And justice is in our hands.
Why is my eye patient?
Above the slit in us.
Why is my eye blind?
And justice is in our hands

This city so sad has a shadow and has a fire
Mom, the neighborhood has become dangerous where are you playing
And you are young
This city so sad has a shadow and has a fire
Mom, the neighborhood has become dangerous where are you playing
And you are young
Lived once and a brown bite
Lived once and a brown bite
And your sister came with a story
And your sister came with a story
She repeated the last class
They taught her that her dad is stupid and dumb
And that the rich is like the poor
They taught her that her dad is stupid and dumb
And that the rich is like the poor
They taught her that her dad is stupid and dumb
And that the rich is like the poor
They taught her that her dad is stupid and dumb
And that the rich is like the poor

Why is my eye patient?
Above the slit in us.
Why is my eye blind?
And justice is in our hands.
Why is my eye patient?
Above the slit in us.
Why is my eye blind?
And justice is in our hands
Oh piece of my eye,
You are not weird,
Mom
Water or milk
Mom
