George Wassouf - El Hawa Sultan (الهوى سلطان) (English translation)

Arabic

El Hawa Sultan (الهوى سلطان)

الهوى سلطان
الهوى سلطان
يا عاشقين الهوى سلطان
أشكي للزمان
يقللي الزمان
على القلوب الهوى سلطان
 
يا حبيب قلبي
يا حبيبي
يا غرام
يحرم عيني مالمنام
فرحة فؤاده
بليالي سهاده
 
عذابه راحه
وانا بصراحه
بكل صراحة
قلبي بعذابه كتير فرحان
الهوى سلطان الهوى سلطان
على القلوب الهوى سلطان
 
أناجي طيفه
آه يا عيني
لو يغيب
أشكي أشواقي للحبيب
أحن لعذابه
لقسوة شبابه
 
عذابه راحه
وانا بصراحه
بكل صراحة
قلبي بعذابه كتير فرحان
الهوى سلطان الهوى سلطان
على القلوب الهوى سلطان

I know it's hard to believe that this is actually George Wassouf, but it is. Here's a very young Wassouf singing the song live:

Love is a Sultan

Versions: #1#2
Love is a sultan
Love is a sultan
Oh lovers, love is a sultan
I complain to time
And so time tells me
Love is a sultan ruling over hearts
 
Oh my heart's dearest
Oh my darling
Oh, love
It deprives my eyes of sleep
Its heart is filled with joy
when I have sleepless nights
 
To be tortured for it comforts me
And honestly
In all honesty,
My heart is very happy being tortured by it
Love is a sultan, love is a sultan
ruling over hearts, love is a sultan
 
I call upon its shade
Oh, my eyes
If it goes away
I complain about my passions to my lover
I miss its torture
And the cruelty of its youth
 
To be tortured for it comforts me
And honestly
In all honesty,
My heart is very happy being tortured by it
Love is a sultan, love is a sultan
ruling over hearts, love is a sultan
 
Let me know if you have any questions about my translation. Good luck.
