Transliteration

Baba o mama yehebouni
Alamouni wa rabouni
Ya rab yekhali baba
Wel mama noor ouyouni
Mama ya mama ya set el-koul
Mama ya mama ya ahla foul
Ya rab yekhaliki liya
Ya mama ya qaliya aliya
Baba ya baba ma ahla
Baba ya baba ma aghla
Hou fi ayni hou fi qalbi
Dawman dawman la ansah
Baba o mama yehebouni
Alamouni wa rabouni
Ya rab yekhali baba
Wel mama noor ouyouni
