The Boy and the Sea

Postby sunsoakin » Tue Aug 28, 2007 11:56 pm

Hello! I had a question about the song. It says on the PDF document that it should be "yajma3", but when I listen to the song at the end of Part 1, it doesn't sound the same as it is written. Can you help me?

Also, do you know where to find the translation or lyrics to the rest of the song? I was hoping to find one the way you did- that was so helpful!

Thanks so much! :D

Hi sunsoakin

From what I can recall from the song it is actually yajma3, but because the word after it is al-9adafa, it sounds like yajma3al, but the last 2 letters are actually part of the next word al-9adafa. Does this make sense?

We have actually written the translation of part of the song ourselves. Maybe 1 of our listeners can volunteer to translate the rest of the song?

I like the song very much as well! And I also hope that someone can translate the rest of it for us.
