Flamenco Sepharad – Fel Sharah

Fel Sharah, part of the Flamenco Sepharad program, performed at The Hillman Center For Performing Arts in Pittsburgh.

Original Lyrics

Fel sharah canet betet masha
La signorina aux beaux yeux noirs
Come la luna etait la sua faccia
qui eclairait le boulevard

Volevo parlar shata metni
Because her father was a la gare
E con su umbrella darabetni
En reponse a mon bonsoir

Perque my dear tetrabini
Cuando yo te amo kitir
And if you want tehebini
Il n’y pas lieu de nous conquerir

Tutta la notte achlabiki
Et meme jusqu’au lever du jour
And every morning astanaki
Pour le voeu de notre amour

English Translation

The girl with beautiful dark eyes
Was strolling down the street
Her face, lovely as the moon
Lit up the boulevard

I wanted to speak to her, but she insulted me
As her father was at the train station nearby
With her umbrella, she hit me
In reply to my greeting

Why hit me my dear
When I’m so in love with you?
If you want to show me your love
Then we mustn’t quarrel

All night I’ll wait for you
Even until dawn
And every morning thereafter
For the sake of our love
