Ahmed sent this song from Iraq with the following note, "This is a very Traditional song called (Hila Ya Rumana). It is like a Ballad, sung with dance and music with some jumps.

"Hila", is as if when you say in English "hey, hey" (with dance and music). "Romana", is a name of tree that carries the Pomegranate fruit or the girl who is beautiful and sweet like this fruit. There is a name in this song and here, we shall use your name Lisa (ليزا) in Arabic." -Ahmed

"This is the most ancient video for the song "Hila Ya Romana", I think from 1968 or earlier. This is the full song and there are many new video clips for it, but I see that this is the original." -Ahmed
