Song For The New Egypt

The Sound of Freedom

This was posted on YouTube just last night. When I first saw it there had been about 300 viewers. Tonight there are over 33 thousand.

The words to the song are:

"I went down and I said I am not coming back, and I wrote on every street wall that I am not coming back.

"All barriers have been broken down, our weapon was our dream, and the future is crystal clear to us, we have been waiting for a long time, we are still searching for our place, we keep searching for a place we belong too, in every corner in our country.

"The sound of freedom is calling, in every street corner in our country, the sound of freedom is calling..

"We will re-write history, if you are one of us, join us and don't stop us from fulfilling our dream.

Congratulations to the people of Egypt. Glad you had finally achieved what you had long for. Hoping the transition will be smooth and peaceful.

Congratulations to the people of Egypt! The whole world has been following intensely, and this is truly a success story of modern times. It's not over yet, and the Egyptian people need to make sure that the remnants of Mubarak's regime don't try to interfere with their prospects of a real, representative democracy.

The whole world watched and the Muslims across the world were proud of the way the Egptians conducted themselves, the sight of hundreds of thousands praying in the square.

We pray that this revolution brings real change to Egypt, a representative governance and independence from the US.

being an Egyptian, i find that Egyptians have special ways in almost everything they do even their songs about what they are doing; i see them very expressive.
