بين ريتا وعيوني . . بندقيه
والذي يعرف ريتا ينحني
لعيون عسليه
وأنا قبلت ريتا
عندما كانت صغيره
أذكر كيف التصقت بي
وغطت ساعدي أحلى ضفيره
آه.. ريتا
إسم ريتا كان عيدا في فمي
جسم ريتا كان عرسا في دمي
وأنا ضعت بريتا . . سنتين
وتعاهدنا على أجمل كأس
واحترقنا في نبيذ الشفتين
وولدنا مرتين
آه.. ريتا
كان يا ما كان
يا صمت العشيه
قمري هاجر في الصبح بعيدا
في العيون العسليه
والمدينة كنست كل المغنين
بين ريتا وعيوني . . بندقيه

Between Rita and my eyes there is a rifle
And whoever knows Rita
kneels and prays
to the divinity of honey-colored eyes
And I kissed Rita
When she was young
And I remember how she approached
And how my arm was covered by
the loveliest of braids
Ah, Rita..
Rita's name was a feast in my mouth
Rita's body was a wedding in my blood
And I was lost in Rita for two years
And we made promises
Over the most beautiful of cups
And we burned in the wine of lips
And we were born twice
Ah, Rita!
Once upon a time
Oh, the silence of dusk
In the morning my moon migrated to a far
place in those honey-colored eyes
And the city swept away all the singers
And Rita,
Between Rita and my eyes — A rifle
