SHOSHANAT MIDBAR

[Intro: Cheb Mami]
Hathe mada tawila
Wa ana nahos ana wahala ghzalti
Wa ana nahos ana wahala ghzalti
Wa ana nahos ana wahala ghzalti

[ [Verse 1: Sting]

I dream of rain - ye lay ye lay
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain - ye lay ye lay
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire - ye lay ye lay
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames - ye lay ye lay
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose - ye lay ye lay
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower - ye lay ye lay
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns - ye lay ye lay
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns - ye lay ye lay
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain - ye lay ye lay
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain - ye lay ye lay
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain - ye lay ye lay
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes - this rare perfume
is the sweet intoxication of her love

[Cheb Mami]
Aman aman aman aman aman
Omry feek antia
Ma ghair antia
Ma ghair antia

[Verse 2: Sting]
I dream of rain - ye lay ye lay
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain - ye lay ye lay
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose - ye lay ye lay
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower - ye lay ye lay
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose - ye lay ye lay
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower - this rare perfume,
Is the sweet intoxication of the fall.

[Cheb Mami]
Ya lili ah ya leel
