lyrics

Dans ses yeux Il a le Souk
pais d'arjan, quick on foot
dans les coer, Habibi
hazel eyes forbidden fruit
in his pocket a sharp knife
always ready, you never know
pour la vie il est connu
comme Tzigan, Tzigan Mandour

Some people swear he's in Paris
vente hashish pres Mon Martre
Andere sahen ihn in München,
fliehen vor der Polizei
in Madrid su novia jura
que lo mata se regresa
in London he has business, another name, no known addressa

Quando al tramonto pian la luce se ne va
con lo sguardo perduto oltre il mare aldila'
Marrakesh ed Algeri lontane da qui
i colori, i profumi, il morir...

Allez mon ami c’est l’heure de partir
Le temps de jouer dans ce lieu est fini
Fais tes affaires et dis au revoir
Demain une autre ville, une autre vie, sa va.

Quando al tramonto pian la luce se ne va...

fi eaynayh laday alsuwq (fi ainei ladaiii suku)
fi qalbih laday euyun eisaliin habibi (fi calbi ladaiii aiun enasalian habibi)
fi jaybih had sakin (fi djeibi hed sah/gein)
'ant la taerif 'abadana (in taerif abadan)
fi alshawarie aismuh (fisciaweriaei asm\uah)
Tzigan Tzigan Mandour

pour la vie il est connu
Tzigan, Tzigan Mandour
ohi mira qui pasa!
Tzigan Tzigan Mandour
oh ma guarda chi c'e'
Tzigan Tzigan Mandour
Ou est, chi e', Warum
Salaam Tzigan Tzigan Mandour


TZIGAN MANDOUR (English)

In his eyes he has the Souk
little money, quick on foot
In his heart, Habibi
hazel eyes forbidden fruit
in his pocket a sharp knife
always ready, you never know
on the streets he's known
as Tzigan, Tzigan Mandour

Some people swear he's in Paris
selling hash on Mon Martre
Others saw him in Munich
on the run from the Police
in Madrid his wife swears
she is going to kill him if he comes back
in London he has business, another name, no known addressa

When at sunset the light gently fades
his gaze lost beyond the great sea
Marrakesh and Algeri so far from here
the colors and perfumes, the dying...

C'mon my friend, time to go
the days of playing here have come to an end
Close your deals and say your goodbyes
tomorrow, another life another town, that's how it goes.

When at sunset the light gently fades...

In his eyes he has the Souk
little money, quick on foot
In his heart, Habibi, hazel eyes forbidden fruit
in his pocket a sharp knife
always ready, you never know
on the streets he's known as Tzigan, Tzigan Mandour

on the streets he's known
Tzigan, Tzigan Mandour
oh, look who's coming!
Tzigan Tzigan Mandour
oh look who's here
Tzigan Tzigan Mandour
where is he, who is he, how?
Hello Tzigan Tzigan Mandour
