Jawaz El Safar

"Jawaz el safar" is Arabic for "passport". And Marcel Khalifé is universal for magnificent or, to quote my second grade teacher, "fantastronomique!". Used beautifully in the final scene of Amreeka, I must thank Beyondthehummus (is this an official name now?) for saving time in what might have been a tedious search for the song title.
The words are from a Mahmoud Darwish poem.
