Inzal Ya Gameel

 

This page contains a translation into English of the lyrics to the popular Arabic song "Inzal Ya Gameel", which was sung by Lebanese singer Walid Toufic. It is sometimes spelled as "Enzal Ya Gamil" or "Anzil Ya Jameel". The singer's name is sometimes spelled as "Tawfiq", "Tawfik", or "Toufiq".

When Walid Toufic was young, growing up in Tripoli, Lebanon, he used to sing and play the oud for gatherings of his family and friends. His singing career began when he appeared on television, on a program called "'Studio Al-Fan". He was an instant hit in the media, and became known as "The amateur that in no time sparkled like a star." Unfortunately, the rise of the civil war in Lebanon led him to continue his career elsewhere. He lived in Damascus, Syria for 10 years, pursuing a career in both singing and acting. After a time, he moved on to Egypt to continue his show business career. He appeared as an actor-singer in the movie Man Yatfi Al-Nar (Who's Putting the Fire Out?) which featured this song, "Inzal Ya Gameel".

Lyrics

Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you!

Come here my darling and dance
You can dance as you like
I love your eyes
Even though they are distant
Why are you so distant
You are in my heart
Be yourself my darling
We are happy
And the days pass quickly
You are like the moon
You are like the full moon
If you point at the stars
They will fall out the sky
You are like the Spring
I will be so patient with you
Give me your hand
Open your heart
Then everything will be alright
You are like the moon
You are like the sea
It goes on forever
And my heart is like a sailor
Be yourself my darling
