The Owner of the House
The owner of the house
What's with him?
The house is for sale
How much is it?
Hundreds and hundreds.
Jennie wrote, "Recently I just moved to Morocco, with my baby, and was interested in learning some songs. I have picked up a few songs while I was here, and thought that I would share them with you. Unfortunately, I am not able to type in Arabic, so I will do my best transliteration. I hope you are able to use them! They are all sung in Morocco, although they may not all be from true Moroccan origin because of all the different cultural influences present in the country, as I know lots of Egyptian and French songs are popular here."
Many thanks to Mohamed Akaddar for recording this for us!
