GUEST,Len Wallace Lyr Add: Song for Egyptian Pres. Hosni Mubarak (9) Lyr Add: Song for Egyptian Pres. Hosni Mubarak 02 Feb 11


Song about Egyptian President Mubarak
to the tune of "Wake Up Little Suzie"

CBC radio in Windsor played the Everly Bros. singing "Wake Up Little Suzie" released back in 1956. I couldn't resist and followed the old Woody Guthrie tradition of stealing the tune, some of the words and some new ones of my own. May need some work, but this is what I got in a few minutes.

Get out, little Hosni, get out
Get out, ol' Hosni, get out!

A million folks in the street,
Wake up Mubarak and weep.
Your reign is through, your plots are hatched
And you're in trouble deep
Get out little Hosni,
Get out ol' Hosni.

You proved to us that you're the rich man's friend,
But Hosni, babe, we can't be fooled again.
Get out little Hosni, get out ol' Hosni
And leave us alone!

Get out, little Hosni, get out!
Get out, ol' Hosni, get out!
Dictatorship's not so hot,
In fact, we think it's a flop,
'cause we're fed up, you're goose is cooked
Your reputation is shot
Get out, little Hosni!
Get out, ol' Hosni!


What are you gonna tell Obama?
What are you gonna tell Chirac?
What are you gonna tell your friends
When we shout "WE'VE HAD ENOUGH!"
Get out little Hosni . . .
Get out old Hosni . . .
Get out little Hosni
YOU GOTTA GO NOW!
