To the tyrants of the world

I consider this song one of the greatest patriotic songs if not the greatest ever!
The poem was written by the great poet "Abo AL Qassim Al Shabbi" during the French invasion of Tunisia.
In the year 2002 Latifa decided to sing the poem.
You can see in the attached photo snapshots of the song's video clip.

The translation below might sound stupid in English, but for sure the original Arabic poem is NOT, the song is crowded with figure speeches; it's hard to keep the meanings with out losing the power of the poem during the translation.

DOWNLOAD the MP3 at 128 KBPS the song was never released officially so the audio track is taken from the music video that's why the quality might be low (4 shared host)
Song name: Ela Toghat AL Alaam (To the tyrants of the world)
Song Genre: Patriotic
Singer: Latifa
Lyrics by: Abo Al Qassim Al Shabbi
Composed and Arranged by: Jamal Salamah
Translated by: RADIANT GUY (ME)

To the unfair tyrants..
To the lover of the darkness..
To the enemy of life..

You've made fun of innocent people wounds; and your palm covered with their blood
You kept walking while you were deforming the charm of existence and growing seeds of sadness in their land

Wait, don't let the spring, the clearness of the sky and the shine of the morning light to fool you...
Because the darkness, the thunder rumble and the blowing of the wind are coming toward you from the horizon!

Beware becasue there is a fire underneath the ash; Who grow thorns will reaps wounds!

You've took off heads of people and the flowers of hope; and watered the cure of the sand with blood and tears until it's got drunk!

The blood's river will take you off and you will be burned by the fiery storm!
