help with an arabic (?) song

The song in question is "Aiwa Ah" by the Lebanese artist Manar. My bellydance troupe has been working on choreography to it; being given to language geekery, I'd like to know what she's singing about and be able to sing along, since I hear it all the damn time. All I can pick out with any certainty is the title and "beledi". My Google-fu fails me, except for turning up the alternative spelling "Aywa Ah".

Can anyone with a better grasp of Arabic track down the (transliterated) lyrics, and/or offer the gist of their meaning? You can listen to the song here. I've also tried searching Arabic pages for the title, but even with the auto-translate option I'm not having much luck.
