The Lyrics

Eddy Grant does the Hajj ..... Some translations Bint! -- Girl! ....... an nisah -- the women .... abaya -- same as burqa ...... Ihram -- a state of spiritual purity
BINT! ...... BINT!

Now at the Hajj there is violence
An-an-nisah throwing stones at Shaytan*
No place to let my ass hang out
'Cos I have to maintain Ihram

Wallah, we're gonna hajj down to (The Meccan Avenue)
And then don our whack attire
We gonna hajj down to (The Meccan Avenue)
And the bints can wear abayas

Working so hard like a pilgrim
Cant afford a camel to kill
Deep in my arch I am swellin'
Still must run 'tween the hills

Oh no, we're gonna run down to (The Meccan Avenue)
Our throats are getting drier
We gotta run down to (The Meccan Avenue)
It makes us all perspire

Allah!
Allah!
Allah!
Allah!

We gotta walk down to (The Meccan rendezvous)
It's how we dodge The Fire
We gotta walk down to (The Meccan rendezvous)
We're quelling Allah's ire

Who is to blame for congestion?
Never will get to the Cube
Reeling from circ ambulation
Think I'll watch the rest on the tube

Oh God, we gonna throng down to (The Meccan Avenue)
And then we touch the Ka'aba
We gonna throng down to (The Meccan Avenue)
And then we see the mob-bah

Out in the heat
Out in the heat
Out at the mountain
In the prophet side of town

We gonna hajj so true (At Mecca Avenue)
And then we hajj it higher
We gonna hajj so true (On Mecca Avenue)
This song has been satire

Oh yeah!
(We gonna hajj so true)
Hajjing in the daytime!
(At Mecca Avenue)
Hajjing in the night!
(And then we hajj it higher .....)

*Shaytan is accented on second syllable, so it works with the pace of the song
