D'autant m'expliquer aujourd'hui qui a donné l'ordre de réprimer les Algériens?
شكون هم اللي راهم قتلو الناس؟
 بالموالفة يضربو الجزائريّين
Vouz connait diviser les Algériens
وين راكم رايحين؟
وبلادي هذا ما تغدكمش؟
و الشعب هذا تغدكمش؟


CHORUS (x2)
الشعب كره من الكلاب هاذوك من الفجار هاذوك
الشعب كره من الوعود هاذوك من الهدرات هاذوك
الشعب كره من الغدرات هاذوك من الخدعات هاذوك
الشعب كره الشعب كره الشعب كره الشعب كره الشعب كره

الشعب كره من المعيشة هاذي اللي خمجت و غلات
الشعب كره من الغوال اللي غوات البلاد و ما خلات
الشعب كره من الناس اللي راهم خربو ذوركا الميزانية
 وغرسو الميزرية فوق أراضي دزيرية
الشعب كره من هذا الغبد من هذا الغل
 الشعب كره من التغلاط والتخباط والتخطيط اللي عاد تخلاط
الشعب كره من الجماعة اللي تعمر غير في جيبها
 وكا العادة كي يحصلو يجيبولنا قوانين جديدا
الشعب كره من الأقوال من القوالب و الهدرات
الشعب كره من الظلم و الضرب للظهر في المظاهرات
الشعب كره يزينا ديما يقابلوه في كل مسيرة
بقنابل مسيلة ولا سناسل غير باه يتسيرا
الشعب كره خكاك في بلادو و ولادو مام بناتو
راهم عادو يباتو في الذل حتان ماتو
و الفوضى هاي فناتو و السكات جَمَيْ فادو
و نهار اللي فهمها فرات فاق بلي الوقت راهو فاتو



CHORUS (x2)
الشعب كره من الكلاب هاذوك من الفجار هاذوك
الشعب كره من الوعود هاذوك من الهدرات هاذوك
الشعب كره من الغدرات هاذوك من الخدعات هاذوك

الشعب كره خطاك في كل بلاصة الطريق راهي مفلقة
الشعب كره وكل ماتصب المطر لازم تصرا فيضا
الشعب كره العباد راهي ميتة في الشتا كل يوم جنازة
وصحاب السياسة راهم لاتيين غير بالكراسة
الشعب كره علاذيكا اليوم مسكين راهو حايب يدي حقو
 ماسحقش صدقة أعطيولو برك على قد عرقو و علاه
تعاركو و علاه تضرو و علاه ترطردو
 و علاه كي يريكلامي لازملك طول تروح تضربو
الشعب كره خطاك هاو عقب صح حروب و ثورات
الشعب كره هاذي حالة طوارئ وينهي الثروات
الشعب كره يا ترى ولاد الزعماء و علاه راهي تزها
 و الزوالي يسمع الله غالب حنا في أزمة
الشعب كره يونامار ما زالو برك يصبرو فيه
الصوارد خلاصو بصح الليسونس يصدرو فيه

و صحابه محسوبين من سنوات الستين

CHORUS (x2)
الشعب كره من الكلاب هاذوك من الفجار هاذوك

الشعب كره لي والا فاشل الأمر ولى عاجل
مدام الفاجر بحق الشعب ولى يتاجر

 الشعب كره يروح البحر يخلي الموت و الما يديه
الشعب كره يدير كْرَيم يتفلق في لوتوموبيل
ولا يعود بالكاشيات بيرا زطلة طول الليل
الشعب كره من العباد اللي دير المال لهنا فوق ظهرو
 و اللي راهم طارو دارو دراهم جَمَيْ ظهرو
 اللي قراو راهم تقهرو طاحو في قهوة و قارو
و اللي هدرو و لا قالو داروهم طول ورا اللي بارو
الشعب كره خطاك في الحق اليوم الفقر راهو عطاهم
الشعب كره اللي والا حايب خدمة حاب يوكل دارهم
الشعب كره الهم غطاهم و جامي لوكان خطاهم
و الناس علا الدراهم رجعو عديان في بعضاهم

الشعب كره من الكلاب هاذوك من الفجار هاذوك
الشعب كره من الوعود هاذوك من الهدرات هاذوك
الشعب كره من الغدرات هاذوك من الخدعات هاذوك
الشعب كره الشعب كره الشعب كره الشعب كره الشعب كره

OUTRO [rough]:
لازم يقولو وش يشار ما عندناش حق في الأشياء على شعبنا

لازم يعرف ما زلت النوش حتّان نشوفو الأخبار
انتعنا حنّة من الخارج هنايا في البلاد انت

D'autant ... Explain to me who gave the order to repress Algerians!
Who went and killed the people?
By habit, they beat the Algerians.
You ant to divide the Algerians!
Where are you going [where's your future in this]?
And the [situation of] this country doesn't bother you?
And the [situation of] the people doesn't bother you?

CHORUS (x2)
The people are fed up with these dogs and these wicked libertines.
The people are fed up with these promises and these acts of wastefulness.
The people are fed up with these betrayals and these dirty tricks.
The people are fed up! The people are fed up! The people are fed up! The people are fed up!

The people are fed up with this standard of living that has them decaying and seething.
The people are fed up with the ghouls who haunt the country and don't leave it be.
The people are fed up with the people who have been sabotaging the budget recently
and who sowed misery in the land of l'Algerie.
The people are fed up with this injustice, this rancor, and this deception.
The people are fed up with the networking and the planning that became just a mess.
The people are fed up with those who do nothing but fill their pockets
and - as usual - when they get stuck, they come up with a new law.
The people are fed up with words, flip-flops, and statements.
The people are fed up with oppression & being beaten on their backs during demonstrations.
The people are fed up with riot police always meeting them at every march
with tear gas bombs and chains just to keep them walking straight.
The people are fed up because in their own country their sons and even their daughters
are going back home to sleep in humiliation until they die.
And this chaos is killing them and silence never benefited them
and the day that they understood, the country realized it was too late!

CHORUS (x2)
The people are fed up with these dogs and these wicked libertines.
The people are fed up with these promises and these acts of wastefulness.
The people are fed up with these betrayals and these dirty tricks.
The people are fed up! The people are fed up! The people are fed up! The people are fed up!

The people are fed up because everywhere the roads are busted.
The people are fed up. Every time it rains there has to be floods!
The people are fed up. The people are dying. Every day in winter there's a funeral
while politicians simply cling to the seats of power.
The people are fed up. That poor guy longs to get what he is rightfully owed.
He does not need charity. Just give him what he sweated for!
Why do you fight him? Why do you hurt him? Why do you kick him away?
And when he reclaims his rights, why do you always have to go and beat him?
The people are fed up because they went through wars and revolutions.
The people are fed up with the State of Emergency. Where is the wealth?
The people are fed up and the children of the elite are enjoying life
while the poor man hears "It's God's will" when we are in a crisis.
The people are fed up. That's enough! They're still trying to make them stay patient.
The money is running out and the gasoline is being hoarded.
[The people] pour it by the centiliter and by the cent
while [the elite's] friends have been taken care of since the 1960s!

CHORUS (x2)
The people are fed up with these dogs and these wicked libertines.
The people are fed up with these promises and these acts of wastefulness.
The people are fed up with these betrayals and these dirty tricks.
The people are fed up! The people are fed up! The people are fed up! The people are fed up!

The people are fed up because all the youth today are in effervescence.
The people are fed up because all the youth today want to emigrate.
The people are fed up. The leaders are failing. The matter has become urgent.
The wicked man still makes a business out of selling the people's rights.
The people are fed up. The truth is they now don't really know what they want to do.
The people are fed up. They go the sea to let death come and take them away.
The people are fed up. They commit crimes and blow themselves up in a car [bomb]
or they turn to pills, beer and drugs all night long.
The people are fed up with the people who make money here on their backs,
with those who fled and made money that never reappeared,
with those who studied hard and got crushed and reduced to coffee and cigarettes,
and with those who spoke out or denounced it and immediately got put behind bars.
The people are fed up because, in truth, today poverty is what they've been given.
The people are fed up. They're the people who want to get a job and feed their family.
The people are fed up. Problems are overwhelming them and never leave them
and people became each others' enemies over money!

CHORUS (x2)
The people are fed up with these dogs and these wicked libertines.
The people are fed up with these promises and these acts of wastefulness.
The people are fed up with these betrayals and these dirty tricks.
The people are fed up! The people are fed up! The people are fed up! The people are fed up!
