Levantine Arabic: محلاية


New Member
It´s in the song "كتير محلاية" from Azar Habib

كتير كتير محلاية يا حلوة يا حلوة شو الحكاية
ما قلتي لي شو الاسباب عليك بدي دق الباب واسال عنك المراية

    Ma7layeh is a Levantine dessert. Maybe he is comparing his love interest to a dessert (akin to ya 7elwa, ya soukar, ya 3asal and so on)? I have no idea if this is a common expression, maybe he took some artistic license and turned ma7layeh into an adjective for the purpose of the song?
