'Scandalous' Song by Hani Mitwasi Gains Much Popularity اغنية هاني متسوي : طز لك ولا على بالي

Hani Mitwasi
Hani Mitwasi, whose latest album is filled with heartfelt songs that are worthy of his amazing vocals, has unofficially released a hilariously irreverent song (not included on the CD) about a man who leads his life the way he wants and without giving a hoot about what anyone says.
Here is a video of the uncensored version of the song followed by the lyrics in Arabic (along with my rough English translation) as well the transliterated Arabic lyrics (so you can sing along in Arabic even if you don't know what the words mean).
Finally, I have included a live version of the song in which the singer--but not his audience--glosses over the risqué verses while performing live in concert.



Click on the video screen below to listen to the song then slowly scroll down to follow the lyrics


I am a bad guy and I don't give a hoot  أنا زلمه سيّء و غير مبالي
 That's how God made me وهيك الله خلق حالي
 I do whatever I want without asking anyone وبسوي إلي براسي طوالي ولا بسأل
 Screw it, that's how I am! طز لك ولا على بالي

They told me that happiness is a state of mind   قالولي السعاده حالة 
 That I should buy my clothes from second hand stores واشتري أواعيك من الباله
 That traveling abroad means irresponsibility وقالولي السفر هماله
 That sex is a debaucherous game والجنس لعبة سفاله
 I became debaucherous, irresponsible and I don't care صرت سافل وهامل وغير مبالي
 That's how God made me وهيك الله خلق حالي
 I do whatever I want without asking anyone وبسوي اللي براسي طوالي ولا بسأل
 Screw it, that how I am! طز لك ولا على بالي

My intentions are always bad وأنا نيتي دايما سوء
 I don't there's justice anywhere وبشك بعدل الفاروق
My sinning heart has a license in bad driving  قلبي دايما عم بيسوء ما عطوه رخصة سوء
I now market my honor and I don't care  صرت اسوق الشرف وغير مبالي
 That's how God made me وهيك الله خلق حالي
 I do whatever i want and I don't care وبسوي إلي براسي طوالي ولا بسأل
 Screw it! That's how I am طز لك ولا على بالي

 They said that whiskey was haram (forbidden by Islam) قالولي الويسكي حرام
 But without it, I cannot sleep بس أنا من غيرو ما بعرف أنام
 Let's not debate the issue سيبنا من كتر الكلام
 Let's leave such talk for under the sheets خلي الحكي تحت الحرام
 I became debaucherous, irresponsible, and I don't care صرت سافل وهامل وغير مبالي
 That's how God made me وهيك الله خلق حالي
 I do whatever I want and I don't ask anyone وبسوي اللي براسي طوالي ولا بسأل
 Screw it, that how I am! طز لك ولا على بالي
