La7me- The bird flu song

In Paris at the seminar I attended, my crazy Jordanian friend had a song playing on her mp3. Apparently a Palestinian or Jordanian Swede, living in the southern parts of Sweden recorded this song as a reaction to the chicken hysteria surrounding the bird flu. La7me (lahme), meaning meat in Arabic is the name of this absolutely mad song:

Ana ba7ib el la7me kteer*
whether it's there or here
for the la7me I drive an hour
because la7me gives me power

Chilling eating shish kebab
I even eat it at my job
People say "you want some lunch?"
only if it's chicken you a** munch

Put the chicken in my mouth
Put it always in the south
You don't know what you're doing
I love the chicken brewing.

When I have no la7me I feel like I'm gonna die
if you give me la7me I feel like I can fly
La7me is the best creation in ze universe
if the la7me not existing I will just curse

La7me la7me la7me la7me
Ana bah7ib el la7me kteer, ana ba7ib el la7me

* ana ba7ib el la7me kteer= I love meat a lot

Download song here.

Yes buj.
I am a stone wall with a round face.
To reveal the truth, your hand you must place,
in the open mouth with the open space,
I am "the mouth of truth", not the mouth of grace.

Khalas...bedtime for me. Ma biseer!

BuJ said...
