egyptian arabic question 

I've heard the word لغبطيطا in a couple of pop songs, and I've tried to find a translation for it, but so far haven't found. One egyptian informant I asked about this just didn't tell what it means. I suspect this is something vulgar, so don't be shy, I know what to expect, hit me with a translation!

@Stoori i definitely don't know but i wonder if it's related to "lakhpati" which i think is Hindi for millionaire? there's an italian restaurant in egypt called "lakhbatita" also
