Lyrics - Transliteration

(folk song from Lebanon & Palestine)

‘Ala del’ona ‘ala del’ona
Zaytoon blady atyab zaytona
Zaytoun blady wel lawz el akhdar
Wel miramiyeh wla tensa lza’tar

English Transliteration - Fair Del'ona

Fair Del’ona, fair Del’ona
My country’s olives are the tastiest,
My country’s olives and fresh almonds,
And miramiyeh tea and don’t forget thyme.

Arabic - على دلعونا

على دلعونا وعلى دلعونا
وزيتون بلادي اطيب زيتونا
زيتون بلادي واللوز الاخضر
والمرامية ولا تنسى الزعتر
وقراص العجي لما بتتحمر
مطيب طعمتها بزيت الزيتونا
