DEBKA RAFIACH

Li yomi veli leili

Tmoli li ve'arvi li

Rad hayom lif'at hayam
Vehalaila laila kvar paras
Va'aderet ofel li

Adei or tei'or li shemesh
Shemesh li tei'or

DEBKA RAFIACH

My day is mine, and my night
And my morning is mine
My yesterday and my evening are mine

The day goes down to the edge of the sea
And the night has already spread out
And I have a cloak of darkness

To the light
To the light
To the light, the sun will shine for me
The sun will shine for me


Note:
Debka is a form of Arab line dance where people stand close together, hand in hand or hands on shoulders.

Rafiach is a place in Gaza where there was, before Israel became a state, a prison run by the British. Jewish activists, arrested by the British, supposedly made up the dance while at the prison.
