Dalida - You're Beautiful, My Country - حلوة يا بلدي

Helwa Ya Baladi

 Dalida was perhaps the first true world music star, and is one of the most famous and successful singers ever. Her career flourished for decades in France where she became and international celebrity, however, some forget that she was born to an Italian family in Egypt, Dalida left her native Egypt in the 1950s to pursue fame and fortune as a model and actress in France. These worldly credentials allowed her popularity to transcends cultural boundaries as she went on to become a legendary singer, singing in many of the world's languages, especially French, Italian and Arabic. Following years of emotional shocks, including the suicides of multiple husbands, she died of an overdose in 1987.

Because she was born in Egypt, and because she was the first international star to record songs in Arabic, Dalida remains immensely popular throughout the Arab world. This song hints at Dalida's real life experience, as she herself left Arabic Egypt to go live in France, and no doubt, resonates with many of the Arabs of that generation who also sought to emigrate. Thus, Dalida, an ostensibly French singer and actress, is the singer of one of the great Arab nationalist songs.

The song itself, of course, conflates the love for his first love in her country with the love of country itself, which is a common motif in Arabic music.

Dalida - You're Beautiful, My Country

A few beautiful words
You're beautiful, my country
A few beautiful songs
You're beautiful, my country
I always hoped to return to you, my country
And stay beside you always and forever

Memories of everything that has passed
You're green, my country
My heart is full of stories
You're green, my country
My first love was in my country
I'll never forget him, my country
Where are the times of old, before we parted ways
We were saying that this separation was impossible
And every tear running down my cheek
Was full of hope that we would remain there
In the sea of love, on the shores

A few beautiful words
You're beautiful, my country
A few beautiful songs
You're beautiful, my country
Where is my sweetheart, my country
He was so far from me, my country
And whenever I sing, I think of him
Tell me my darling, where have you gone and left me?
We'll both sing this most beautiful tune
The words "my country" are so beautiful in a song between two lines
La la la oh oh oh la la oh oh oh

A few beautiful words
You're beautiful, my country
A few beautiful songs
You're beautiful, my country
I always hoped to return to you, my country
And stay beside you always and forever
You're a moon (meaning "you're beautiful), my country
You're beautiful, country

داليدا - حلوة يا بلدي

كلمة حلوة وكلمتين
حلوة يابلدي
غنوة حلوة وغنوتين
حلوة يابلدي
أملي دايماً كان يابلدي .. إني أرجعلك يابلدي
وافضل دايماً جنبك .. على طول

ذكريات كل اللي فات ... خضرا يابلدي
قلبي مليان في حكايات ... خضرا يابلدي
أول حب كان في بلدي ... مش ممكن أنساه يابلدي
فين أيام زمان .... قبل الوداع
كـنـّـا منقول إن الفراق ده مستحيل
وكلّ دمعة على الخدّين كانت بتسيل
مليانة بأمل إن احنا نبقى موجودين ... في بحر الحبّ .. على الشطين

كلمة حلوة وكلمتين ...حلوة يابلدي
غنوة حلوة غنوتين ... حلوة يابلدي
فين حبيب القلب يابلدي .. كان بعيد عني .. يابلدي
وكل مابغني .. بفكّر فيه
قول يا حبيبي انت سايبني ورايح فين
أجمل لحن ده ح نغنيه أحنا التنين
يا محلا كلمة بلدي في غنوة بين سطرين
ياليل يا عين ... يا عين ياليل
ياليل ياليلي ليلي

كلمة حلوة وكلمتين
حلوة يابلدي
غنوة حلوة غنوتين
حلوة يابلدي
أملي دايماً كان يابلدي .. إني أرجعلك يابلدي
وافضل دايماً جنبك .. على طول
قمر يابلدي ... حلوة يا بلدي
