Warni Warni (Come to Me)
by Omar Souleyman

"Come to me, come to me / Oh beautiful, you charmed me with your dark complexion / You can have me and my love easily . . . They told me that we'll get married / I cannot live without you . . .  You're for me like the water and the air that I breathe that I cannot survive without . . . May God punish who tries to separate you and me . . . When are we going to be together for you to hold me in your arms?" -- Omar Souleyman
