focused on artists from the Middle East, all of whom performed at the
festival, including some from Lebanon, Israel, Egypt and other places in

of explicatives (3:47)

Arabic Lyrics to Mashrou' Leila's Version of 'Ne Me Quitte Pas' ما تتركني هيك

Here are the Arabic lyrics to Mashrou' Leila's version of the Jacques Brel classic 'Ne Me Quitte Pas' titled 'ما تتركني هيك' [Don't Leave Me Like This]

See video clip of the group performing this song live in concert after the lyrics below.

ما تتركني هيك
عم بفتّش عليك
بأسفل كل كاس
بين تخوت هالناس
اتوهّم وجهك
وبنادي اسمك
كأنه موشوم
عشفافي اسمو
مزاجها عفريت
بحبر مميت
ما إلو دوا
خيبة الهوا

ما تتركني هيك
ما تتركني هيك 
ما تتركني هيك 
ما تتركني هيك 

حبيبي خليك
و بيحلى السمر
بنشرب القمر
و نوره بيِرْويك
بقتفلك النجوم
بركّبها عتاج
ببني لنا ملاج
ورا الغيوم

واذا هجرت 
خد قلبي معك
خد روحي معك
و اتركني بالمُر

ما تتركني هيك 
ما تتركني هيك 
ما تتركني هيك 
ما تتركني هيك 



Here is a video clip of Mashrou' Leila performing the song at the Paléo Festival Nyon, Switzerland in July 2012:
