We ganny el rudd ganny,
And I found her waiting for me.
We la-et-ha betestanaany.

And she told me from the beginning.
We aletly ana men el awel,
I was smiling for you!
Badhaklak ya asmarany,
Smiling for you.
Ya asmarany!

And the reply came to me.
We ganny el rudd ganny,
And I found her waiting for me.
We la-et-ha betestanaany.
And the reply came to me.
We ganny el rudd ganny,
And I found her waiting for me.
We la-et-ha betestanaany.

And she told me from the beginning.
We aletly ana men el awel,
I was smiling for you!
Badhaklak ya asmarany,
Smiling for you.
Ya asmarany!

Me, me.
Ana, ana.
Yes me, me.
Aywa ana, ana.
Me, me, me, me!
Ana, ana, ana, ana!
Not him!
Mosh houwa!
