Jennie wrote from Morocco, "…this first one you have on your sight under the Egyptian section, but they sing it slightly different here, not much different though…"

The pronunciation can be found in the Notes.



Mama zamanha gaya
gaya baeda shiwaya
gayba maha shanTa
fi-ha wezza ou butta
bit-gul ouack ouack ouack


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."
