الهجر مو عادة غريبة لا ولا منـكم عجيبة
عرفت مـن هذا فعلكم كُلمن يسوقه حليبه
جرعـت لوعـات منكم وانهدم ثلثين حيلي
آنـا كنـت ابتـعد عنـكم لو يطـاوعني دليلـي
غيـر هــذا شرد أقلكم كلمن يسوقه حليبه.
Who would've thought that someone from Israel would come across this silly old post and relate to it?
I got e-mail earlier today from Saleh al Kuwait's son, Shlomo AlKvity.
Shlomo, happy to see his father's music still alive among the younger generation, thanked me for remembering his dad, and told me about the release of a double CD featuring Saleh and Daoud al Kuwaiti's music soon.
The funny part is how my dad got all excited when I told him about it, he started singing one of Hudairi Bu Aziz's songs which went something like جر الكمنجة عدل يا صالح كويتي
Talk about reminiscing!
(Linking you to Salima Murad & Saleh al Kuwaiti's الهجر مو عادة غريبة has failed... I'm too sleepy to look again.)
It's a small world indeed, and Israel is one click away.
LeilaTov for now,
