The Lyrics

These will be songs 7 & 8 from Wahhabi guitar legend Djinni Hendrix's debut album, "Are You Islamicized" A few definitions are in order .... Fatihah and Falaq -- Al Fatihah (The Opening) and Al Falaq (The Dawn) are two very short Quran verses that are always recited in daily prayers; Zabibah bump -- knot on the forehead caused by years of touching one's forehead against the ground while praying; Plain of Arafat -- last destination of the Hajj itinerary; The Cube -- The Ka'aba, ka'aba is Arabic for cube
You traipse in front of my rug when you
Know every day
"Fatihah" and "Falaq" girl
Are the words I pray
You tell me it's all right
You don't fear Allah's wrath
You say you just want me to
Depart the Narrow Path
You're just like

Hajj Town traffic
So hard to get to The Cube
Hajj Town traffic
I don't need to toss stones at you
Hajj Town traffic
All you do is hold me back
And I'm trying to get to the Plain of Arafat

I'm not the only Muzz
Accused of putting on airs
Zabibah bump all across your head, Ha
I can see you faked your prayers
But darling, can't you see you're risking
Rousing Allah's ire
And with you I can see a certain path
Straight to the Fire
You're just like

Hajj Town traffic
So hard to circle The Cube
Hajj Town traffic
I don't need to toss stones at you
Hajj Town traffic
All you do is hold me back
And I got better things on the Plain of Arafat

Hajj Town traffic - Yeah
(look out, look out)
Hajj Town traffic - Yeah
(look out, look out getting away from you)
Hajj Town traffic ....

SA'UDI LADY

Sa'udi .... Sa'udi
You know you're a cute little prostrator
Sa'udi
You know you're a sweet little son maker
Sau'di
I wanna take you home
I won't do you no harm
You got to bear my child, bear my child
Ooh, Sau'di Lady!

Sa'udi ...... Sa'udi

Now I, uh, see you covered up in a shroud (Sa'udi!)
You make me wanna holler out loud (Sa'udi!)
Ah Bint, listen now
I'm under your spell
I don't care if they roast me in hell
I've got to pierce that veil, pierce that veil
Sau'di Lady!

I'm gonna bring you home
I won't do you no harm
You got to be in my clan, be in my clan
Sa'udi Lady!

One other ritual in the Hajj is throwing tiny stones at pillars that represent Satan, hence "I don't need to throw stones at you"

Don't know the song, but the lyrics are very creative! Good job!

In that case, Randy, permit me to explicate the OS for you. In the OS, Hendrix is mocking a potential lover for not being fast and loose enough for his tastes, and of course I'm turning that on its head here. The first lines of the OS are -- You jump in front of my car when you ... Know all the time ... Ninety miles an hour, girl ... is the speed I drive

Funny stuff.

Thanks, Porfle. When I first conjured up "Fatihah and Falaq, girl ... etc" I thought "oh, that's good." An even more subtle verse would have been "Fatihah to Falaq, girl ... is the speed I pray" because "Al Fatihah" is the first chapter of the Quran and "Al Falaq"is the second to last chapter. So "Fatihah to Falaq" would be a way of saying the entire Quran
