Ta7iya Masr

مبارك ارحل غور أحسن بكره تموت مقتول

Oh Mubarak leave for good, or else tomorrow you’ll be killed

الهلال ويا الصليب بيقولوا لأ يا حبيب

The crescent and the cross say “no” ya Habib [elAdly]

شرطة مصر يا شرطة مصر انتو بقيتوا كلاب القصر

Police of Egypt, oh police of Egypt, you’ve become the dogs of the castle

حسني مبارك يا عميل بعت الغاز وفاضل النيل

Husni Mubarak, you agent, you sold the gas and (only) the Nile is left (to be sold)

قولوا وردوا أنت وهي …مصر هتفضل غاليه عليا

Say and repeat, you and she….  Egypt will stay dear to me

…مصر حتفضل غاليه عليا رغم الخونه والحراميه

Egypt will stay dear to me, despite the traitors and the thieves

ارحل ارحل ارحل غور خلِّي بلدنا تشوف النور

Leave, leave, leave, for good, let our country see the light

ارحل ارحل يا عميل بعت بلادك لاسرائيل

Leave, leave you traitor, you sold your country to Israel

مسلمين مع مسيحيين كلنا طالبين التغيير

Muslims with Christians, we all demand change

ارفع ارفع الهتاف شعبنا حر ومش هيخاف

Raise, raise the chant / call / slogan, our people are free and not afraid

اضرب اضرب يا حبيب مهما تضرب مش هنسيب

Hit, hit, ya Habib, no matter how much you hit, we won’t let go

مش عايزينه مش عايزينه ولا كلابه ولا زنانيه

I don’t want, I don’t want, neither his dogs nor his prisons

ثوره ثوره في كل مكان ضد الخونه والأندال

Revolution, revolution everywhere, against the traitors and the scoundrels

اهرب اهرب ياجمال انت وابوك والأندال

Escape, escape, Gamal, you and your father are scoundrels

يا مبارك يا خرتيت ارحل ارحل يا غتيت

Oh Mubarak, you rhinoceros, leave, leave, you’re annoying

حسني مبارك يا بليد شعب مصر مش عبيد

Husni Mubarak, you lazy one, Egypt’s people are not slaves

يا جمال يا غراب البين خد ابوك وروحوا لزين

Oh Gamal, you crow, we’re turning your father’s cheek, so you two leave to Zayn (al-‘Abideen Bin ‘Ali)

علِّي علِّي علِّي الصوت النظام خايف موت

Raise, raise, raise the voice, the regime is scared to death

كل الشعب يقول وينادي حسني مبارك بره بلادي

All the people say and call:  Husni Mubarak (get) outside his country

السرطان في كل مكان والغاز متباع بالمجان

The cancer is everywhere, and the gas is sold for free

From AMW, our Cairo correspondent: ‘a guy walked past a shorta with a shotgun and said ‘when’s the plane to Saudi?”. Are you listening, ya Hosny? They’re talking to you.

NB: obviously none of these images or videos are my own, as I’m in Cambridge, not Cairo. Slogans and translations from The Angry Arab.
