Hey you! Stand up and don’t resign!


Who are TheMoroccans, or is it The Morockans? I don’t know, but their music sounds very much like The Waitresses (I Know What Boys Like) meet Cake (Building a Religion). This song has the kind of beat and lyrics that just stick in your head, which is precisely what is intended.

It’s a place called, Palestine
No wonder why you, don’t know it
Israel was created in 1948
And it ethnic cleansed, Palestine
(REPEAT)
It’s a place called, Palestine
Forgotten by the world, and you think it’s fine?
Hey you, stand up, and don’t resign
To make the sun shine on Palestine

It’s a place called, Palestine
That’s being oppressed and aggressed
But they made you blind
To forget and ignore this unjust war
But they can’t shut the door anymore

It’s a place called, Palestine
that was erased and replaced
by a prejudiced state
that negotiates peace
while it make illegal settlements on the east

Hey Israel, what kind of peace is that?
Or, is it a game that you play
On the world to get away…

What kind of peace is it?
When you kill more than one thousand innocent civilians
Were all of those terrorists?
Or, terrorism is genetically inherited…

It’s a place called, Palestine
that needs your voice and support
to become alive

Let’s get together against the apartheid
and make Palestine free another time.
(REPEAT)

End The Occupation
Free Palestine

By Jihane Al Quds and The Morockans

Lyrics are poetry too. There’s just something about taking words and putting them together in appealing ways that make you want to read them, or listen to them, or say them aloud. For day three of Poetry Month I hope you will all take a moment to listen.

I came upon this video in search of The Moroccans, well worth the watch.
So to Jihane I say, More Rockin’. Thanks to Anggia Putri Nilasari for bringing this video to my attention.
