By James F. Harrington
Oh Allah dear, the day may come, for all the world to see.
I pray that I may be the man, to set my people free.
And to the call, I'll lead them all to freedom and victory.
And never more, my people roam in grief and poverty.
But soon shall live, side by side, in peace and harmony
next to those who for so long, have brutally persecuted thee.
Their shameful crimes shall not remain unknown
But brought forth for all the world to see
Our symbol shall always remain, the uprooted olive tree.
And until I die, I'll raise our flag, the red, white, green and black
And hold our country's banner high,
Until the day, inshalla, we get our country back!
And loud and high we'll raise the cry...
For the memory of Deir Yassin!!!
