Dr. Saghir wrote that this "... song is thought to be one of the most famous children's rhymes in Syria and the adjacent Arabic speaking countries."
The Chicken Song
These chickens... How they are beautiful
They are walking around their mother happily
They drank water and said Wow Yum Yum
They raised their heads and thanked God happily.
Amma yaduru hawla ummon mabsuteen
Sherbu may ....... 'alu khay
Rafa'u rason hamadu rabbon mabsuteen
