Reminds me of a song:

*singing* "Shitdawreen ya om A7mad, shitdawreen ya om A7mad. Adawir ibriti! Shit5ay6een ya om A7man, shit5ay6een ya om A7mad. Thob a7mad iwlidi!"

Blah blah. Can you help me with the rest? I forgot.

Ok Sarah, here's a test for you. I will write you a part of one of Huda's songs. You figure out what song it is, what play? and sing it for me :P
