سيادة القائد طنطاوي ازيك كيف احوالك؟
بيتهيألي وصلك ان الشعب فاق وجالك
وبيطالب بالمطالب اللى طالب بيها من الاول
وماحدش فينا فاهم ليه الحق مجاش وطول
مطالبنا انت بنفسك قولت عليها مش ممنوعة
وطالما متنفذتش يبقى كلمتنا مش مسموعة
وبالتالي هنعلي صوتنا عشان نسمعهالك
هنقولها باعلي صوت ولو مسمعتش هنعيدهالك

فخامتك احنا مش هيضحك علينا تاني
عشان اتعلمنا ما نسكتش
عظمتك اللي عملها اولاني يعملها تاني
لو مطالبنا متنفذتش

واللي عملها اولاني سهل يعملها تاني
واديك شايف بنفسك الكفه بتقلب فى ثواني
خلي بالك مش دايمالك وحط في بالك
لو ماعملتش اللي عليك هتلاقي الناس كلها واقفالك

انا دم اخويا غالي غالي اوي يا طنطاوي
واحنا ما بنتهددش
واللي عملها اولاني يعملها تاني يا طنطاوي
لو مطالبنا متنفذتش

انا دم اخويا غالي غالي اوي يا طنطاوي
واحنا ما بنتهددش
واللي عملها اولاني يعملها تاني يا طنطاوي
لو مطالبنا متنفذتش

سيادة القائد طنطاوي فين المحاكمات؟
فين حق الغلابه وفين حق اللي مات؟
فين حق البلاد دي اللى اتنهب في سنين سكات؟
فين حق الشهيد اللى اتظلم حتي الممات؟
سيادة القائد طنطاوي الشعب مدبوح
وانتا مش بتداوي وكدبك مفضوح
واكل قوت الغلابه وابو خايله كدابه
انا مش خايف منكم لان قلبي دبابة
يكون في علم اي حد حقي انا مش هسيبه
والوش الطيب يقلب جد وحقي هجيبه هجيبه
مباكولش من الكلام اللي بينيم والطبطبه
انا عايز اشوف افعال ده حقي مش منحه يابا

واللي عملها اولاني ممكن يعملها تاني
واديك شايف بنفسك الكفه بتقلب فى ثواني
خلي بالك مش دايمالك وحط في بالك
لو ماعملتش اللي عليك هتلاقي الناس كلها واقفالك

انا دم اخويا غالي غالي اوي يا طنطاوي
واحنا ما بنتهددش
واللي عملها اولاني يعملها تاني يا طنطاوي
لو مطالبنا متنفذتش

انا دم اخويا غالي غالي اوي يا طنطاوي
واحنا ما بنتهددش
واللي عملها اولاني يعملها تاني يا طنطاوي
لو مطالبنا متنفذتش

General Tantawi, Your Excellency, how are you? How's everything going with you?
*I'm ready for your plans to divide the people and your schemes.*
[The people] demand what they demanded from the outset
and no one among us understands why we still haven't gotten our rights.
We demand what you yourself say is not forbidden,
and as long as you don't implement our demands, our words are still not heard.
And therefore we'll raise our voice because we'll MAKE you hear it.
We'll say with the loudest voice, "If you don't hear us, we we'll do it again!" [i.e., We'll overthrow you, too!"]

Your Majesty, we won't be laughed at again
because we learned to not be silent.
Your Excellency, what happened before will happen again
if our demands are not implemented.

And what we did once is easy to do again.
*You see your hands yourself. You turn over your palm for a few seconds.*
Take care that you *_____________ and put it in your head:
If you don't do your duty, you will face the people and they will stand up to you!

The blood of my brothers is so expensive and precious, O Tantawi,
and we will NOT be threatened.
What happened before will happen again, O Tantawi,
if our demands are not implemented.

The blood of my brothers is so expensive, so precious, O Tantawi.
And we will NOT be threatened.
And what happened before can happen again
if our demands are not implemented.

Your Excellency General Tantawi, were are the trials?
Where are rights of the masses and where are the rights of those who died?
Where are the rights of this country that was plundered for years in silence?
Where are the rights of the martyr who was oppressed until his death?
Your Excellency General Tantawi, the people are having their throats slit,
yet you don't care and your lies are laid bare.
Devouring the people's strength and _____* imagining his lies.
I'm not scared of you because my heart is a tank!
It's in the mind of anyone that my rights will not be taken away.
The good ______ overthrows [the government] for real! And my rights...I will seize them!
_______________* the words that _________ and plump*
I want to see these actions - my rights aren't gift for you to bestow!

And what we did once is easy to do again.
*You see your hands yourself. You turn over your palm for a few seconds.*
Take care that you *_____________ and put it in your head:
If you don't do your duty, you will face the people and they will stand up to you!

The blood of my brothers is so expensive and precious, O Tantawi,
and we will NOT be threatened.
And what happened before will happen again
if our demands are not implemented.

The blood of my brothers is so expensive and precious, O Tantawi,
and we will NOT be threatened.
And what happened before will happen again
if our demands are not implemented.
