معاليك (Cavalry) (English translation)

معاليك

إيّـــــاكَ التطوّسَ بـالعروش
الطغيانْــــ يُزَهِّرْ عصيانـــــ
لــو رحـــ أموتـــــ مئة مرة
رحـــــــ أعـــود مــئة مـرة
مصقولِ الحســـــــامْـــــــ
أتَشَـظّى جيشـــاً يُشــبِهُني
نلتحمْـــ بِبعضْ وَنسـتعصي
 
جيشـــــــــــك ومعـــاليه
مـــــــــش حــــــ يقدرلي
مـــــــــا بتقدر على قلبي
مـــــــــش حــــــ تقدرلي
 
في قاعِــ كُـلِّ شاهقــٍ تُربَتي
أَنْـبُـتُـــــ مَصْقُولَ الْأَقْـلَاَمِـــ
الْجِبَــــــــــالُ حَامِلُوهَــــا
بدأو بحصاها حـتى أَنْجَزُوا
حَيْثُــ القُوّةُ تُبْنى بالوُجومِــ
كُلُّ صوتٍـــــ يُرْفعُ هجومُـــ
 
جيشـــــــــــك ومعـــاليه
مـــــــــش حــــــ يقدرلي
مـــــــــا بتقدر على قلبي
مـــــــــش حــــــ تقدرلي
 
جيشـــــــــــك فداء قلبي
مـــــــــش حــــــ تكسرني
جيشـــــــــــك فداء قلبي
مـــــــــش حــــــ تكسرني
 
لـكمـــــــــ قيمكمـــــــــ
والحبـــــــــــــ لنـــــــــا.
لكمـــــــــ عاداتكمــــــــ
لنـــــــــا الموســــــــيقى.
لكمــــــــــ تقــــــــــاليد
لنــــــــــا المســــــــتقبل.
لـكمـــــــــ قيمكمـــــــــ
والحبـــــــــــــ لنـــــــــا.

Versions: #1#2#3#4
Don't you flaunt in the thrones
Tyranny blooms disobedience
Even if I die a hundred times
I will return a hundred times
The Sword*'s polished
I'll wake up an army like me
We meld into each other and rebel
 
Your army and its highness
Will not stand to me
You can not (defeat) my heart
You can not (defeat) me
 
At the bed of every peak is my soil
I grow up as a polished pen
The mountains are bearing it
They began with its gravel until they achieved
Where the force is built by silence*
Every voice is raised as an attack
 
Your army and its highness
Will not stand to me
You can not (defeat) my heart
You can not (defeat) me
 
Your army is the redemption of my heart
You will not break me
Your army is the redemption of my heart
You will not break me
 
yours are your values
And love is ours
Yours are your habits
Ours is the music
Yours are the traditions
Ours is the future
Yours are your values
And love is ours
 
*they use Hosam, an Arabic name that means gentle sword
*The silence which is accompanied by sadness and grief
 
Thanks!

Author's comments:

I tried to keep it as close in meaning to the original including the phrasing but a lot of it is copied from another translator's.
