Young Syrian Sings Freedom Song

Bookmark and Share

This Arabic song, sung by a young Syrian refugee named Gufran now living in in Jordan, was dedicated to people killed in the war in Syria. This is a translation of the lyrics.

 

Even if they gave us the whole world and its riches,
I won't forget my country, my soul for its sake,
Without my country what is the meaning of childhood,
We are children and we demand freedom,
We are children and we demand freedom,
Syria will remain free and proud.

lalalalalala

Even if they tore out the bones of my body,
And if they take my child away off my lap,
I will not abandon my religion,
The voice of truth is calling me,
We are children and we demand freedom,
Syria will remain free and proud,
We are children and we demand freedom,
Syria will remain free and proud.

lalalalalala

Even if they attacked my home with canon fire,
And they uprooted my trees from the land,
We will bow for no else but God,
We are children and we demand freedom,
Syria will remain free and proud,
We are children and we demand freedom,
Syria will remain free and proud.

lalalalalala

 If the evil men burned my trees,
And if they set my house on fire,
If the evil men burned my trees,
And if they set my house on fire,
We will never accept shame,
And we will never forget (to take) revenge,
We will never accept shame,
And we will never forget (to take) revenge,
We are children and we demand freedom,
Syria will remain free and proud
We are children and we demand freedom,
Syria will remain free and proud,

lalalalalalalalalaaaa

Even if they arrested all the people,
And said that I am an infiltrator,
Even if they arrested all the people,
And said that I am an infiltrator,
The Syrian people will not give up hope,
Bashar and his army will be crushed
The Syrian people do not give up hope,
Bashar and his army will be crushed,
We are children and we demand freedom,
Syria will remain free and proud,
We are children and we demand freedom,
Syria will remain free and proud.

lalalalalalalalalaaaa

Even if they killed all the free men,
And spilled the blood of the children,
The Free Syrian Army protects the home,
We will raise again the laurel branch
We are children and we demand freedom
Syria will remain free and proud
We are children and we demand freedom
Syria will remain free and proud.

lalalalalalalalalaaaa

Just you wait, just you wait Iran,
The Syrian people will not be humiliated,
Just you wait, just you wait Iran,
The Syrian people will not be humiliated,
The Syrian people are so sovereign,
That they will teach you about faith,
We are children and we demand freedom,
Syria will remain free and proud,
We are children and we demand freedom,
Syria will remain free and proud

lalalalalalalalalaaaa

Even if they sprayed us with chemical weapons, We will kneel for no one but for God,
Even if they sprayed us with chemical weapons, We will kneel for no one but for God,
We are children and we demand freedom, Syria will remain free and proud,
We are children and we demand freedom, Syria will remain free and proud.
