those old Tunisian songs that make you feel nostalgic

يا راوي حكي حكاية
مادابك تكون رواية
حكي لي على ناس الزمان
حكي لي على ألف ليلة وليلة
وعلى لنجة بنت الغولة
وعلى ولد السلطان

Oh storyteller tell us a story
Make it a tale
Tell me about the people of old
Tell me about 1001 Nights
And about Lunja, daughter of the Ghoul
And about the son of the Sultan.

ok but how about Damian introducing Dick to the Arabic song that was filmed in Romania "Habibi Ya Nour El Ain" and then it sorta became 'their' song?

I didn’t know that the video was shot in Romania?? that’s awesome!

I have never been to Romania personally but according to some of my internet friends that song was really popular over their during the 90′s so I can imagine that maybe Dick have heard it once when he was a kid while he was vacationing over there and it just like stuck in his mind, he couldn’t forget it but at the same time he just can’t remember the song name no matter what, and it drove him crazy. So when Damian joined the family Dick tried his luck and asked Damian if he “know that old Arabic song that repeats ‘habibi’ over the chorus?” and Damian thinking about it for second before pulling his phone out and typing the song’s name in youtube & going “you mean this old song? why are you interested in it-” and before he could even finish what he was saying Dick scares him by yelling: “YES!YES!YES! I have been searching for YEARS for this! oh thank you so much Damian! you have no idea how long I have been looking for this!!!” 

But yeah, Dick has officially declared that song as his and Damian song. Damian didn’t agree to it but at same time he didn’t disagree so that’s good enough for Dick.
