Rough Translation Below:

High Commander, Tantawi, how are you doing,

I think now you realize that the People are now awake,

And they're demands have not changed from the very start,

Which is why no one understands why they haven't been fulfilled yet.

You personally admitted that our demands are not illegitimate.

Our unfulfilled demands mean that our word is not heard.

We begin to raise to our voice so that you can hear us.

We'll say it with our loudest voice, and if you don't hear we'll repeat it.

Your highness, we will not be fooled again, because we've learnt to be silenced.

Your excellency, He who did it before will do it again if his demands are not fulfilled.

He who did it once, can do it again, and as you can see, the tables can be turned in seconds.

Be careful, keep in mind, if you don't do what you're supposed to, everyone will stand up to you.

Chorus (i think):
My brother's blood is very precious, and we will not be threatened.
He who did it before will do it again if his demands are not fulfilled.
My brother's blood is very precious, and we will not be threatened.
He who did it before will do it again if his demands are not fulfilled.

HIs excellency Chief Tantawy, where are the trials?
Where are the rights of the poor? Where are the rights of the dead?
Where are the rights of the Country that has been robbed for years.
Where are the rights of the Martyr who suffered injustice till his death.

His excellency Chief Tantawy, the People are slaughtered.
And you don't care, greeting this with open arms.
And you eat the bread of the poor, with your greed and your lies.
And I don't fear you because my heart is a Tank.
I won't leave anyone's rights go to waste.
And I'll avenge those who were killed, I will I will.
I'm sick of the words that put us to sleep,

He who did it once, can do it again, and as you can see, the tables can be turned in seconds.

Be careful, keep in mind, if you don't do what you're supposed to, everyone will stand up to you.

Chorus

My brother's blood is very precious, and we will not be threatened.
He who did it before will do it again if his demands are not fulfilled.
My brother's blood is very precious, and we will not be threatened.
He who did it before will do it again if his demands are not fulfilled.

My brother's blood is very precious, and we will not be threatened.
He who did it before will do it again if his demands are not fulfilled.
My brother's blood is very precious, and we will not be threatened.
He who did it before will do it again if his demands are not fulfilled.
