A Ram Sam Sam Percussion

“A Ram Sam Sam” is a children’s song from Morocco and a singing game, as well. Older children can sing the “A Ram Sam Sam” as a round. It can be also sung as a name or hello song by substituting the word “a rafig” in the second verse with a greeting to a friend.

The Liverpool folk group The Spinners released a version of this rhyme, and claimed to have learned the song from an Israeli singer and that the words were in Aramaic, saying “Get up on your horse and gallop away”.
