'innani 'imtalku sayyāra fīāt 'uwnuw wa hiyya 'al-'ān cumruhā 'ithnā cashar cāmān
I have a Fiat Uno, which now is 12 years old.
laqad kānat sayyāra jayyida jiddan li-sanawāt cadīda wa-rakhīsa bi-n-nisbat lil-binzīn
It has been a very good car for many years, and cheap with gas.
wa-lakinnahā 'al-'ān bada'ta tusbih mushkila wa-bihā bacda l-makhātir fî l-qiyyāda
But now it's becoming a problem, and a little bit dangerous to drive.
wa-lākin hattā fī misr haythu kull shay' rakhīs, fa-'inna 'islāhi s-sayyāra ghālī jiddan bin-nisbati lī
But even in Egypt, where everything is cheap, fixing the car is too expensive for me.
'actaqidu 'innanī māhir jiddan fī l-nawāhī l-fanniyya
I think I am quite clever with technical things.
li-dhālika sa'usallah l-muharrik wal-farāmil bi-nafsī
So I will fix the engine and the brakes by my own.
lā 'acrif idhā kuntu sa-'anjah 'am lā, calā 'ayya hāl sa'ukhbir kam fi-mā bacda
I don't know if I will succeed or not, any way I will tell you later.
