A Tunisian song from the 1940's, which was sung by the Tunisian singer, Ali Ryahi, translated by one of his fans since then, Emile Tubiana
I am the Bird
I am the bird, I sing in my mind
I live happily, the best of my kind
I sing for all that flies, and I fly
I sing for the trees and I cry
I like the life of the bird,
Of its taste, my poem sings
When I taste it, my tong burns
From one tree to another
I sing about my life
A golden cage would not fit me
I saw the hunter
Standing in front of me
I do frrr, frrr,
and I continue singing
How lovely, how lovely she is
Oh my dad, have pity on me
