What would this popular love song sound like in a culture with arranged marriages? Habib shows us in this new parody!
My parents and your parents been a-talking
I see them in the village and a-walking
Heard part of what they said
They’re working on an exchange
And I know you and I have never dated
And even though we kind of are related
it seems my father sold
me to you for some goats
So I can’t hesitate no more, no more
it’s been arranged–I’m yours.
Will it be a fairy tale wedding night?
Or is it more like shove at first sight?
Either way it seems that, girl, we’re
Friends with socioeconomic benefits
Try to get to know you, have a chat
what’s your favorite book? Do you like cats?
Make a list of all the things we have in common. Ooh…
Well I don’t think that this will work, oh no.
I made kabob.
