The song is a reference to Abraham, the man who migrated from the Sumerian city of Ur to the land of Canaan (modern Palestine-Israel) and is considered to be the father of all believers by Jewish, Muslims and Christians alike. He had seven sons, and each son became father of a tribe, one of the seven tribes of Israel.

The song though has no religious content, and since Abraham was a popular in America, no Bible connection is needed to understand the song, but nevertheless this kids fun song was designed to get children familiar with Abraham and the fact that he had 7 sons, the founders of the seven tribes. Today the song is very popular in Sunday schools, but also in summer camps, both among religious and non-religiuos environments.
