Samra Ya Samra

Samra Ya Samra (The Dark One) is a classical Eqyptian song composed by Karem Mahmoud.  A transliteration and translation into English appears here.  The lyrics speak of the adoration of a dark-haired woman. It is usually performed in a medium-fast tempo.  Here is an example of a nice version with oud, by Amar Ismail.  Here is a video of Ehab Tawfik performing the song.
