I got a name, and it is Abou Tarek!

Like the pine trees lining the winding road
I’ve got a name, I’ve got a name
Like the singing bird and the croaking toad
I’ve got a name, I’ve got a name
And I carry it with me like my daddy did
But I’m living the dream that he kept hid
Moving me down the highway
Rollin me down the highway
Moving ahead so life won’t pass me by

Like the north wind whistling down the sky
I’ve got a song, I’ve got a song
Like the whippoorwill and the baby’s cry
I’ve got a song, I’ve got a song
And I carry it with me and I sing it loud
If it gets me nowhere, Ill go there proud
Moving me down the highway
Rollin me down the highway
Moving ahead so life won’t pass me by









And I’m gonna go there free
Like the fool I am and Ill always be
I’ve got a dream, I’ve got a dream
They can change their minds but they can’t change me
I’ve got a dream, I’ve got a dream
Oh, I know I could share it if you want me to
If you’re going my way, I’ll go with you
Moving me down the highway
Rollin me down the highway
Moving ahead so life won’t pass me by.

Ya allah, those songs remind me Beirut in the early 70's! And I got a name, it is Abou Walid (even though Walid is not born yet)!

Yallah ya Kheir, chidd al hemmeh. Walid will be a much needed addition to the few true Lebanese.
