What shall I bring, My little girlWhat shall I bring you, As a giftWhat shall I bring, My little girlWhat shall I bring you, As a giftI will bring you a lover’s songI will bring you Star-lightI will bring you Wind from the seaI will bring you The whole worldI will bring you Children’s laughterTo scare off all your fearsI will bring you, in both my handsI will bring you my whole life
I will draw the journey to you into a picture
And I will bring it to you, as a gift
I will write the journey to you as a song
And I will bring it to you, one bright morning
Another song I love of Banai is Haknafe Metuka (The Knafe is Sweet, knafe being an Arab desert).
Who is sitting today, for hoursTaking it all in‘Till this whole shukLooks like a hallucinationI buy some coffee, and olive oilA wanderer for one dayHair down to my shouldersDraft notice in my hand
