Song

Mom is coming now Song

Way back to 1951 in Egypt, "Mama Zamanha Gaya" - "ماما زمنها جاية" , the very first filmed children's song was born in Egypt. The song was beautifully written and sung by Muhamad Fawzi, and composed by FatHi Qora. The song is about a father who is taking care of his child, while the mother is away from home. The father then keeps trying to entertain the child, while giving her/him good life lessons using beautiful and affective singing and acting. You could do the same for your child, and you can add your own version of a life lesson in the second and third parts of the song.
