Marija l-Maltija


M'hemmx li jdur l-iżveljarin
Nistenna li jgħaddi l-ħin
Putirjal mimli bit-tama
Ħdejn il-funtana nkun nistenniek
Sabiex moħħi jsib is-serħ
Qalbi tintela' bil-ferħ
Il fortuna laqqgħatni miegħek
Ħelu d-destin

Marija, Marija, Marí
Ismek fuq fomm kulħadd, isem ferrieħ
Marija, Marija, Marí
Bħal ward li jfewwaħ ġnien tant hu sabiħ

Kulur ħaddejk lewn xrar in-nar
Minn ġos-smewwiet
L-Anġli ġabu żewġ kwiekeb kbar
Blu, blu, dawk għajnejk sbieħ
Tbissima ta' mistrieħ
Denja li tkun bint Malta
Marija l-Maltija

M'hemmx li jdur l-iżveljarin
Nistenna li jgħaddi l-ħin
Putirjal mimli bit-tama
Fejn il-funtana nkun nistennik
Sabiex moħħi jsib is-serħ
Qalbi tintela' bil-ferħ
Il fortuna laqqgħatni miegħek
Ħelu d-destin

Marija, Marija, Marí
Ismek fuq fomm kulħadd, isem ferrieħ
Marija, Marija, Marí
Bħal ward li jfewwaħ ġnien tant hu sabiħ

Kulur ħaddejk lewn xrar in-nar
Minn ġos-smewwiet
L-Anġli ġabu żewġ kwiekeb kbar
Blu, blu, dawk għajnejk sbieħ
Tbissima ta' mistrieħ
Denja li tkun bint Malta
Marija l-Maltija

Marija l-Maltija

The Maltese Maria


Can't wait for the alarm clock to go round
I'm waiting for the time to pass
Full of hope, I'll be waiting for you
Next to the fountain at Putirjal
So that my mind will be at ease
You'll fill my heart with joy
Fortune made you come my way
Sweet destiny

Maria, Maria, Mary
For everyone your name means happiness
Maria, Maria, Mary
You're like the roses that fill a garden with sweet smells

The colour of your cheeks is as red as fire
From heaven above
The angels brought two big stars
Blue, blue are your beautiful eyes
A peaceful smile
So worthy to be a daughter of Malta
The Maltese Maria

Can't wait for the alarm clock to go round

Fortune made you come my way
Sweet destiny
