Lyrics

VERSE 1
My grandma Ata had a beautiful smile
A strong, talented woman of style
Even when my cousin couldn’t say her name
She adopted Ata as her claim to fame
VERSE 2
A Lebanese girl living in Mexico
She married and built a family of her own
Deeply in love until their lives fell apart
She took a boat to Lebanon and made a new start
PRE CHORUS
I remember her love especially
When she used to say to me
CHORUS
y eyeoune
y eyeoune shw hulwat shw shatirat ya habibti
y eyeoune shw hulwat ya habibti
y shw hulwat shw shatirat ya habibti
ta'a, ta' la hwn ya habibiti
(Chorus arabic translation)
Your eyes
Your eyes, you're so beautiful, you're so smart my darling
Your eyes, you're so beautiful my darling
So beautiful, so smart my darling
Come to me my darling
VERSE 3
I love to watch Ata’s paintbrush swirl
During summers in Daraoun as a little girl
With every stroke I peeked my head around
And smiled happily without making a sound
VERSE 4
I loved her paintings and wish I had more
Years ago they were destroyed in the war
I have memories of Ata on my wall
She continues to be inspiration to us all
PRE CHORUS
I remember her love especially
When she used to say to me
CHORUS
y eyeoune
y eyeoune shw hulwat shw shatirat ya habibti
y eyeoune shw hulwat ya habibti
y shw hulwat shw shatirat ya habibti
ta'a, ta' la hwn ya habibiti
(Chorus arabic translation)
Your eyes
Your eyes, you're so beautiful, you're so smart my darling
Your eyes, you're so beautiful my darling
So beautiful, so smart my darling
Come to me my darling

BRIDGE
When she said this to me
I felt loved
It was her way of telling me
How proud she was

CHORUS
y eyeoune
y eyeoune shw hulwat shw shatirat ya habibti
y eyeoune shw hulwat ya habibti
y shw hulwat shw shatirat ya habibti
ta'a, ta' la hwn ya habibiti

(Chorus arabic translation)
Your eyes
Your eyes, you're so beautiful, you're so smart my darling
Your eyes, you're so beautiful my darling
So beautiful, so smart my darling
Come to me my darling
