Leftist Love

Without nothing!


Without nothing

I love you

Without nothing

In this love

There is no money

No dollars

No territories

No jewelers

Come and let us sit

In the shade

None owns this shade

Just love me and think at it a little bit

Without nothing

Just you

Only you

Without nothing

Without all kind of your clothes

Without makeup

Without all your friend’s friends

The Nasty and the cute ones

Come and let us sit

In the shade

None owns this shade

Just love me and think at it a little bit

Without your mommy and daddy choir

without eyelashes and mascara

without that women weave

without their bullshits

without all this mockery

Come and let us sit

In the shade

None owns this shade

Just love me and think at it a little bit


Ziad Rahbani

(1956-)

Ziad Rahbani (also Ziyad al-Rahbany) is a Lebanese composer and writer for radio shows and theater, very famous in his native country as well as in many other regions of the Arab world.

Ziad Rahbani is the son of the Lebanese famous composer Assi Rahbani and Nuhad Haddad, the famous Lebanese female singer known as Fairouz.

He composed many songs for his mother Fairouz, as well as other singers, and he has released music albums of his own. Many of his musicals satirized the political situation in Lebanon during and after the civil war, often strongly critical of the traditional political establishment; others addressed more philosophical questions. He played the lead role in all his plays, and has generally been reluctant to allow the filming of his plays.

Politically, Ziad Rahbani has a long-standing relationship with Lebanese leftist movements, and is a self-declared communist. Being a Christian, his politics have meant that he has been at odds with some of his co-religionists. During the Lebanese civil war, Ziad resided in mainly Muslim West Beirut.
