Lyrics:
Aïcha
As if I did not exist
She passed, and I was not missed
Without a glance, Sheba's queen
I said, Aïcha, take all of me

Pearls and jewels, a necklace of gold
These gifts, all for you to behold
These fruits, this milk and honey
My life, Aocha, if you will have me

  Aïcha, Aïcha, listen to me
  Aïcha, Aïcha, stay here with me
  Aïcha, Aïcha, please look at me
  Aïcha, Aïcha, answer me

I'll go where your breath alights
ivory days and ebony nights
I'll wipe away your tears, your cares
Nothing too fine for one so fair

  Aïcha, Aïcha, listen to me
  Aïcha, Aïcha, stay here with me
  Aïcha, Aïcha, please look at me
  Aïcha, Aïcha, answer me

    She said, keep your treasures
    Because me, I want better than that
    They may be gold, but bars make a cage
    I only want the same things as you
    I only want the same respect as you
    I only want love
 
I'll say the poems of love
I'll play the songs from above
I'll take the sun and the skies
to light your heavenly eyes

  Aïcha, Aïcha, listen to me
  Aïcha, Aïcha, stay here with me
