Peace will come

I haven't seen this posted anywhere on the web, so I thought I'd post it here: The words to Sheva's song "Salaam" (a/k/a "Od Yavo Shalom") in Arabic:

Se-oofa ya-ati al salaam aleina (3x)
Wa Ala a Kool

Aleina wa ala kool a-lalam
Shalom Shalom

[Peace will come for us, and for everyone. Peace - for us and for all the world]

Thank you -- I have been singing the second verse in Arabic, and wondering why we can't all sing it that way, since it has the same meter and rhyme.
I know I sound goofy, since I can only mimic both Hebrew and Arabic, but since I'm only singing while I ride my bike to work, who's to laugh?
