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.

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



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?
