about

The Egyptian Revolution from the perspective of an Egyptian living abroad.

lyrics

Ya 7uriyah ( freedom)

How I would love to see ya

I don’t know where you’ve been

But I think it’s time for you to show your face again.

Ya 7ukuma (government)

What are you doing for us

Why should we take your fall

Yeah I think you owe us all a damn good explanation

Ya beladi (my country)

It seems you’re hurting badly

For your government

Doesn’t seem to be concerned about its citizens

3yza shoofik ya 7uriyah (I want to see you, freedom)

Inti feenik ghali 3alaya (Where are you, you are valuable to me)

3yza shoofik ya 7uriyah

Inti feenik ghali 3alaya

Tehrimooni minha (why would you take her (freedom) away from me

Nabdi albi ya huriyah (She is what makes my heart pulse/beat)

Ya sha3abi (My people)

Ya shabaab ya amal waTani (The youth, the hope of my homeland)

You are strong and you are wise

Don’t ever be surprised when life is how it should be

Ya 7abeybi (my loved ones)

Intu dayman guwa albi (you are always in my heart)

I hope and I pray

We experience the same God-given rights someday

3yza shoofik ya 7uriyah (I want to see you freedom)

Inti feenik ghali 3alaya (Where are you, you are valuable to me)

3yza shoofik ya 7uriyah

Inti feenik ghali 3alaya

Tehrimooni minha (why would you take her (freedom) away from me

Nabdi albi ya huriyah (She is what makes my heart pulse/beat)

We all have the right to live in peace

Yet it is a fight to live at all

We have really tried to say this nicely

Bas (but), it’s time for the regime to fall.

3yzeen na3ish fi salam (We want to live in peace)

3yzeen na3ish fi aman (We want to live in security)

Yullah ya shabab w ya banaat (Let’s go/hurry, young men and women

Allah ma3na w ma’aa beladna (God is with us and our country)

3yza shoofik ya 7uriyah (I want to see you freedom)

Inti feenik ghali 3alaya (Where are you, you are valuable to me)

3yza shoofik ya 7uriyah

Inti feenik ghali 3alaya

3yza shoofik ya 7uriyah

Inti feenik ghali 3alaya

3yza shoofik ya 7uriyah

Inti feenik ghali 3alaya

Tehrimooni minha (why would you take her (freedom) away from me

Nabdi albi ya huriyah (She is what makes my heart pulse/beat)
