Did you know that "Muslim" is the Arabic word for "someone who is a Muslim"?

lyrics

Halal atcha boy!

It’s the happy healthy holy month of Ramadan
When the blessed angel Gabriel revealed the Koran.
Oh baby oh baby
Mohammed was super psyched.
Oh baby oh baby
Eat a date. Stay up late.
Whoo hoo hoo

All throughout the thirty days of Ramadan
We can only feed our faces between dusk and dawn.
Oh baby oh baby
Just as soon as the sun goes down
Oh baby oh baby
We’ll feast. There’ll be lots to eat.
Whoo hoo hoo

Everybody knows it’s goes along with the lunar calendar.
Everybody knows it goes at a different time every year.
Everybody knows it goes.
Everybody knows it shows.
All throughout our day we thought Iftar would never come.
Whoo hoo hoo

We’ll read Koranic verses during Ramadan.
On the Night of Power, it’s a marathon.
Oh baby oh baby
Remove your shoes at the mosque.
Oh baby oh baby
We’ll pray each and every day.
Whoo hoo hoo

Everybody knows it goes in Mecca and Medina.
Everybody knows it goes in the 9th month of the year.
Everybody knows it goes.
Everybody knows it shows.
It’s haraam, it’s verboten so let’s serve Halal for all.
Whoo hoo hoo

We celebrate this awesome month of Ramadan.
With former Houston Rocket Hakeem Olajuwon.
Oh baby oh baby
Check out his fade away J.
Oh baby oh baby
That fake was called the Dream Shake.
Whoo hoo hoo
