If you are a Shiite Muslim then Babalu means Boogyman

Interesting stuff, i have the Kite Runner on my satellite but havent watched it yet, from watching the preview it didnt interest me that much.

On a side note, another movie i watched on my satellite a few days ago was "Into The Wild", Great movie, if you havent watched it i recommend it. One of the best movies i've seen in a while.

Interesting, though I doubt that a Brazilian (a place where most people are either Roman Catholic or Protestant) I can't see too many references to Islam.

I did a search and it seems to be a Latin song


Babaluuuuuu
Babalu
Babalu aye
Babalu aye
Babaluaaaaye
Ta empezando lo velorio
Que le hacemo a Babalu
Dame diez y siete velas
Ay Pa ponerla en cruz.
Y Dame un cabo de tabaco mayenye
Y un jarrito de aguardiente,
Dame un poco de dinero mayenye
Pa' que me de la suerte.
CORO
Yo Quiere pedi
Que mi negro me quiera
Que tenga dinero
Y que no se muera
Ay! Yo le quiere pedi a Babalu
Ay! un negrito muy santo como tu
Que no tenga otro negro
Y que a mi me quiera.
Ay Babalu aye

Chango-abalu aye

Ay dame diecisiete velas pa aguachar un pie
Babalu aye

Ay babababa que baba que baba Babalu aye

Yep, he even said it was based on the gum...he quotes it on his all access episode.
