A bit of a weird one this a friend has a singing camel toy bought in the gulf somehwere and has asked me if i can identify the words. I can hardly make them out myself and don't know the chant/song

The camel has glowing red eyes and a quick search found one posted on you tube singing the same song. If anyone can help with the words of the song I would appreciate it.

The link on you tube is

AN EGYPTIAN SONG... Dec 19, 2007

I think that it is an Egyptian song wich was a popular "success" 3 or 4 years ago. I don't know the lyrics but may be some Egyptian colleague can help you more.

Regards.

thanks a lot Dec 19, 2007

Waleed thanks a lot for the words and Nesrin for the link.

I had actually seen that clip before but didn't remember it and to be honest i don't think i could have worked it out from the camel singing it.

It is lovely and clear in the clip but as you say very annoying.

Thanks again

S

DIFFERENT Singing camel Jan 29, 2009

I have a singing camel toy that was bought in Saudi Arabia. It sings a different tune that the one mentioned above. It sounds like he says: "Amma Dai....Amma Dai....Aaaaaama....Aaaaama" Does anyone know what this means?
