Ala Meen by Superstar of Sha’abi Amina

This is a great upbeat egyptian pop song by Amina. This song is available on numerous CDs. Mainly it is available on her 2009 album titled “Ala Meen.” 

I just finished translating it which was great fun. The song definitely has that “independent woman” tone. It has the arabic script (which took me hours to transcribe myself since I couldn’t find the Arabic lyrics online), transliteration and translation. I also added my summary and some linguistic notes. It’s all a great value for just $10. Please consider buying. E-mail for orders. All paypal to
