Peddlers' Quarter

Lyrics & music:Rahbani Brothers
Sung by Hoda

Take me / to the peddler's quarter / O peddling woman / and sell me to my lover / in the vendors' square.

My next of kin / put me guard on the garden / they instructed me and said / that I must watch over / the garden / but my eyes dozed off / little by little / the thieves sneaked in / and stole the orchards.

My mother has lost me / at the end of the crossroads / I wept but she didn't hear me / then I was taken by the crossroads.

Tell him to hear me / and return me to my mother / I'm afraid he'll lose me / and look for the pretty ones. song text here
