old arabic song

those old Tunisian songs that make you feel nostalgic

these are some songs that will put you right in the middle of an old café, nested in one of el Mdina’s districts

يا راوي حكي حكاية
مادابك تكون رواية
حكي لي على ناس الزمان
حكي لي على ألف ليلة وليلة
وعلى لنجة بنت الغولة
وعلى ولد السلطان

Oh storyteller tell us a story
Make it a tale
Tell me about the people of old
Tell me about 1001 Nights
And about Lunja, daughter of the Ghoul
And about the son of the Sultan.
