3 gânduri despre “Blues egiptean

    Words and Music by Sandy Cash, 2011

    When we rose up we knew what for
    It was all civil rights and end to war
    So when we saw them fill our screen
    Their square, and all streets in between
    The palace of that potentate and
    His not-so-secret police state
    We turned unto each other and said „Great.”
    We said: „That’s great.”

    It’s power to the people, see
    They want the same as you and me
    Indigenous democracy will kick the butt of tyranny
    The land of Pharoah’s slavery
    Hey, that’s just ancient history…..Kind of poetic, dontcha know.
    Yeah. Let my people go.

    Al-Jazeera, Skye and CNN
    It’s like the thrill of Tiananmen
    Footage that the whole world sees
    Right from the Hotel Raamases
    With huddled masses breathing free
    While Mubarak twists in effigy…..A Star of David on his forehead
    Well, never mind.

    The opposition’s great brown hope
    He has a dream, and he’s no dope
    The moderate El Baraday
    Was Head of the UN’s AEA
    He inspected Tehran’s nuclear stacks
    And told us all, hey dudes, relax!
    Well maybe not the folks in Tel Aviv

    Sure, oppression’s bad and freedom’s good
    Tell that to the Muslim Brotherhood
    Could be that we shall overcome
    And see Egypt free for everyone
    For unveiled women, gays as well
    Full civil rights for infidels But now it pains me to relate
    Chalk up one more for the caliphate.

  2. Gluma egipteana:

    Se spune că Obama l-a sunat pe Mubarak și i-a cerut să scrie poporului egiptean un mesaj de rămas bun. La care, Mubarak a întrebt: “Dar unde pleacă poporul egiptean?“
