Inta Omri is in Arabic, specifically Egyption, it was sung by THE Arab diva, Om Kalthoum back in the 50s or 60s. I'm afraid you'll have to look elsewhere if you want it translated though.

The song title means "You are my life". I used to listen to it now and then with this guy who loved Om Kalthoum, and what I gathered was that it's a story of unrequited love for some hot-shot dude called "Badri"

It's interesting to note that that "omri" means "my time" in English, and that the name "Badri" means "early". Go figure.

CHECK THIS: A few months ago I was sent an email from YouTube. The email says that this video infringes on copyright rules and that the video has been deleted. It doesn't stop there. The email further threatens to delete my account if I try to keep reposting this video!

Well way to go YouTube! You sure have a knack of making your clients look elsewhere for video services...
