The Lyrics


Dumb: give a little bit, but real rights, deny
Dumb: fiddle: ballot total; bum: winner? Lie

Human freedom's fragile, as Egyptians' rallies show us
Cannot let a President deceive, aggrieve, or snow us
We've been waiting thirty years; our proper rights, bestow us


Give us real democracy; reform, or overthrow: us!

Act non-committal; brittle? Some spit'll fly
Ac-quittal? Plight, belittle; down with this guy!


For years, we've been afraid to speak
Economy is bad
But Hosni won't accept critique
You try it; he gets mad
No longer will we be deterred
We're angry, and it shows


The herd we've herded must be heard
So watch as freedom flows!

Autocrats are egotistic jerks who think they're clever
But they can't resist the power of the peeps forever
Watch us as we tear him down with popular endeavor
Run and hide in Sharm el-Sheikh, Siberia, whatever!

Hosni Mubarak: magazine poll, decry
"World's Worst Dictators": #20, quite high


It's trav'ling all around the world:
The smell of freedom's scent
We;ll struggle for it endlessly
And never will relent


All pukes like Mahmoud Ahmadin-
-ejad should heed our plea
Dictatorship's absurd, you turd!
Go set Iranis free!


Freedom is the future now; there's no point to resistance
Peons fed up: lack of food, and living: bare subsistence
Wanting what is rightly ours, with powerful persistence
Ev'rywhere, equality; an excellent existence!

Once, wall in Berlin stood; then torn to the ground
Now, happens ev'rywhere, as free-dom is found


You know, totalitarian countries are moving all bass-ackwards
That's how the world was meant to work,
Don't you think?



PROTEST LEADER: [resume singing]

Plan peaceful protests, people! Put --
-- down Ahmadinejad

(Nut job!)

Just think of it as freedom's way
Of staging its jihad
Go garner "gold"-en glory, guar-
-anteed by grace of God


Um, your opinion?



A thousand camel crotches' lice
Accursing ev'ry clod!


Oh, and what crazy things they are, too!

PROTEST LEADER: [resume singing]

There were times we must have seemed both boisterous and bitter
No one took a moment's rest; not one of us: a quitter
We enlightened all the world; our light was freedom's glitter
Organized our rallies: Internet was our transmitter!

Holy cow! Made history through Google™, Facebook™, Twitter™!

Can hardly wait for Ahmedinejad to meet the same fate. Even more important for the puppet masters who pull his strings to fall. Iranians are going to need to take more forceful measures than the Egyptians required. It would be nice to see the Muslim world go through the sort of change experienced by Eastern Europe in the 1980's and 90's. Will "democracy" equate to rule of law, equality for women, respect for religious liberty of all residents?

TT - Second of the Turtlian Egyptian Tetralogy to the AIR Impossible Seven! Technically flawless and full of wry observaton. What happens now in Egypt? Have the Iranians released the genie from the bottle? Is the Muslim Brotherhood seeped in the Egyptian history of tolerance? If a tree falls in the forest...nevermind! Way to go! ;D

Fave line = "Run and hide in Sharm el-Sheikh, Siberia, whatever!" I would have thought "turd" was a UK only - obviously not!

Fave line: "The herd we've herded must be heard"... Ditto Patrick's and OMR's comments. Let's hope the future is indeed brighter for them, once the crowds have gone home and the jockeying for power and position begins. It's not over yet... 555

Very well done, particularly the choruses and, as noted above, the herd line and the whatever line.

Wow--yet another big seven rendition in one day--my canopic jar runneth over, and over and over--and over, Em Brotep! This 'Super' was truly 'duper with lots of clever rhymes and a cohesive story melded into this delightful ditty--Your tuts-, sir, are most *un*common indeed, appearing to be presided over and blessed by pAmubis, the god of lexical lubrication! I'm gonna have to show this to mummy....
