Arabic Children’s Songs with Recordings

This week we were fortunate enough to receive recordings of four Arabic songs from Lebanon. I’m posting one of the songs below for you to hear.

Here’s Tic Tic Tic Sleiman’s Mother in Arabic, with an English translation and the transliteration, so you can listen along to hear how to pronounce it.

If you’d like to have the computerized text. You can find it on the Tic Tic Tic Sleiman’s Mother song page.

Tic Tic Tic Sleiman’s Mother
English Translation

Tic Tic Tic Sleiman’s mother
Tic Tic Tic where was your husband?
Tic Tic Tic he was in the fields
Picking plums and pomegranates.

Tic Tic Tic y’am sleiman

Tic Tic Tic y’am sleiman
Tic Tic Tic jawsik wan kan?
Tic Tic Tic kan bil haqle

Many thanks to Rima for contributing this song, to Haya for contributing the lyrics in Arabic writing and to Sandy Tanios Jean for singing this song for us! Shukran!

    I know some Children’s songs by the famous Egyptian singer Mohamed Fawzy but I am looking for the lyrics of one called “3aref el wad elli esmoh Adel”. If someone remembers the lyrics please help. If you are interested in the lyrics to some of his other songs I can help with them.

    P.S. I do not know the song “Doha Ya Doha”
