The wretched of the earth have risen
O Lord - do not save the tyrants 

The hungry of the world are singing
The weak of the world are swinging
The oppressed of the world are smiling
O Lord - do not save the tyrants

O Lord - do not save the tyrants and
The brothers of the tyrants, and
The helpers of the tyrants,
The hypocrites who hail the tyrants,
O Lord - do not save the tyrants

O Lord - do not save the tyrants
From Maghrib to Iskandaria
From the Mediterranean to the Red Sea
From the Medina of Tunis to the Medina of the Prophet
O Lord - do not save the tyrants

O Lord - do not save the tyrants, and
Grant the wretched a scent of the freedom
Give the wretched a taste of dignity
Honor the wretched with crowns on their heads
O Lord - the wretched of the earth have risen

    The poem says everything about the oppression of the ummah by the rulers and their hypocrites of the west who support them.

    The song is just and says the real truth about the real situation of the world today where oppression is the vogue.
