يا ليلي، يا ليلي، يا ليلي، يا ليلي يا، يا ليلي

الصحبة مش بالعدد
الصحبة صاحب سند
صاحب يسد معك
راجل يوزن بلد

وأنا اللي كانوا بيتمنوا
أضحك في وش واحد فيهم
وأنا اللي كانوا بيتمنوا
أرمي السلام، أرمي السلام، أرمي السلام بس عليهم

ولا، ولا، ولا، ولا
الصحاب يلا
مش جدعان يلا
ولا، ولا، ولا، ولا
الأندال يلا
كله شمال يلا
دنيا وشوش يلا
ولا، ولا، ولا

إضرب يا عبد سلام إضرب، إضرب

السوس أهو يلا، السوس يلا

ولا، ولا، ولا، ولا
دنيا فلوس يلا
كله يدوس يلا
ولا، ولا، ولا، ولا
إنت ما بينك وبين الحظ دنيا، آه دنيا
دنيا ما طولها ولا حتى في خيالك
أما نفس الحظ عندي حاجة ثانية، حاجة ثانية
مين، مين ولا، ولا مين ولا
مين، مين، مين، مين، مين، مين
ولا، ولا، ولا، ولا
يا عبد سلام إذبح

الصحاب يلا
مش جدعان يلا
الأندال يلا
طب كله شمال يلا
دنيا فلوس يلا
كله يدوس يلا
والغلبان يلا
مش خلصان يلا
إدي أمان يلا
للشبعان يلا
واللي جعان يلا
ما تأمنوش يلا

الهرم يلا
ضرب القنبلة
بنعزك يلا
هنحزك يلا
إوعى تنام يلا
من عبد سلام يلا
لو قلقان يلا
هات رمضان يلا
الفكر فكرنا والجديد من عندنا
كله تمام يا عبد سلام

    It is the 7 world powers that will fall...most of this song is based on the prophecies in Revelations. Former Jehovah's Witness here and I don't know if Prince was studying with them when he wrote it but the whole song feels like it has a lot of JW influence in it...still love Prince and this song though even if I find the actual religion to be bunk.

    Song Meaning

    To me, the first stanza describes (1) the 7 major religions and their propensity to stifle either sexual expression or pacifism. (2) that he and others who espouse logic and intellectualism will triumph over religion's inability to reconcile man's nature (3) Re-stating that no religion is able to perform or duplicate the success of intellectualism (4) An affirmation and reassurance to those who espouse intellectualism to be patient until the influence of the world's religions wane.

    Second Stanza (1) This is basically a mockery of the ironic and duplicitous nature of many religions in which peace and love can somehow co-exist with killing and death

    Third Stanza (1) Here he describes what could be Christianity condemning his message, solely because it does not align itself with that of the Christian faith. And because of the similar dogmatic nature of other religions, he endures condemnation from them, but calmly alludes to their forthcoming capitulation.

    Fourth Stanza In a cryptic but sardonic display, he pokes fun at the fear-inducing tenets of many religions which depict the end of the world to its followers as a horrific bloodbath, despite the unflinching adherence of millions of followers. He also jokes that, despite his status as a non-believer, he will still be around when that happens, as if to suggest that it's all bunk to begin with.

    Fifth Stanza This is undoubtedly the highest level of mockery. He describes what Christianity teaches will be the life lived in Heaven by Christians, describing the fantastic notions of the absence of death and never growing old. He describes a level of unity within every race and creed never before achieved previously on earth. And then, he insinuates that the highest symbol of the Christian hope, the prize that all hope to enjoy upon entering Heaven, perfect unity, actually belongs to him and those like him. SING THEIR OWN SONG TO THEM AS WE WATCH THEM GO DOWN. Wow...

    I agree with the seven deadly sins theory... for 2 reasons: 1) Think about what the majority of Prince's songs are and what they are based on... sex. 2) He mentions "all 7" in Sex in the Summer too

    Song Meaning

    The song “Seven” is replete with images and references to the Bible book of Revelation. The number seven is used repeatedly to reveal a series of prophetic visions: there are seven seals opened, seven trumpet blasts, and seven bowls of anger poured out. The number appears 55 times in Revelation. You can see the similarities by comparing the below statements with the acutal lyrics.

    When the fifth of the seven angels blows his trumpet an angel with the key to the abyss appears (Rev. 9:1). When the abyss is opened an army of strange scorpions is released (Rev. 9:2, 3).

    In Revelation chapter 13, the dragon stands on the “sand of the sea” and a “wild beast” with seven heads ascends out of the waters. It's “mouth speaks great things and blasphemies” (Rev. 13:5) One of it's heads is “slaughtered” leaving six (Rev. 13:3).

    A 'river of blood' comes from a winepress (Rev. 14:20) followed by seven plagues (Rev. 15:1). The lamb has “seven eyes” (Rev. 5:6) and “New Jerusalem” is founded on the names of the “twelve apostles of the Lamb” (Rev 21:14) This new city is made of “pure gold” (Rev. 21:18). Revelation 21:4 states: “he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” The city is related to the singers of Revelation 14:2, 3 that sing a “new song” that sounds of “loud thunder.”

    ok folks, in the bible, babylon (or religious confusion) is referred to as female. God instructs his people to "come out of her". The seven-headed beast referred to in the bible book of revelation is actually the seven major religious denominations (see the book of revelation) also known as babylon. These religions and religious leaders will preach peace to deceive mankind, but their actions will not match their words. they will wage war in the name of peace. This is what Prince is talking about when he says "And I saw an angel come down unto me In her hand she holds the very key Words of compassion, words of peace And in the distance an army's marching feet (1 2 3 4, 1 2 3 4) But behold, we will watch them fall". The bible promises, however, that these seven religious denominations will fall; "sing it while we watch them fall". This is a beautiful song about the hope of things getting better for christians everywhere, even though at the moment they seem to be getting worse.

    This song definitely has religious overtones. I think Prince is referring to the 7 deadly sins. One can never truly achieve true love with sin in the way. Sin is loving yourself more than loving others. So Prince is saying they will "smoke" all the 7 deadly sins and love each other more than they love themselves...

    for me it could be the 'seven religion' possibilities , since does it say "All 7 and we'll watch them fall" therefore it must treat him of something important\ancient, besides "they stand in the way of love", therefore is it probable that refers to one institution or ideology that it produces hate, doesn't it? Moreover it says "And we will smoke them all With an intellect savoir-faire and..." and normally the enemy of religions is intellect. "And in the distance, 6 others will curse me", as if something that for one religion is love for the others is "only blasphemy". Finally: "And I saw an angel come down unto me In her hand she holds the very key Words of compassion, words of peace And in the distance an army's marching feet", 'couse the words of every religion speak of love and peace, and every religion has something truthful (the very key), but beyond those words they have army, war and hate... But this is only my poor opinion.

    "And we lay down on the sand of the sea And before us animosity will stand and decree That we speak not of love only blasphemy And in the distance, 6 others will curse me"

    This bit makes me think that "Animosity" is one of the Seven. Since Animosity isn't one of the seven deadly sins, it invalidates that theory. Unfortunately, it doesn't give us any idea on what the other Six are.

Jesse with the long hair....

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

The Spy
Doors, The
Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?
Album art
Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"
