The Arabic AlphaBet Song

Hello, hello, Hassan Mahmet

Do you know your alphabet?

And if you do, what do you use

To help you not forget?

 

Me, I learned my ABC’s

With a song that makes it’s easy.

Do you have a song, Hassan Mahmet

To help you learn your alphabet?

 

Aywah, my friend, yes, I do

Have a song, just like you

A song that helps me not forget

My own very long alphabet

 

It goes like this:

I begin with:

 

Alif.

Then ba, ta, tha,

Jeem, chha, hha

Then come dal and thal and ra

Zain, ‘ain, ghain, seen, sheen

Sawd, Dawd, Taw and Thaw and fa

Qaf, kaf lam and meem and noon and wow

Ya and ha!

 

Now you try it!

 

Alif.

Then ba, ta, tha,

Jeem, chha, hha

Then come dal and thal and ra

Zain, ‘ain, ghain, seen, sheen

Sawd, Dawd, Taw and Thaw and fa

Qaf, kaf lam and meem and noon and wow

Ya and ha!
