Lyrics: “Now I have a rifle
Tell whoever asks me about my cause:
My rifle has become the cause”

A longer excerpt of the song’s lyrics “Now I have a rifle” originally performed by the Egyptian icon Umm Kul Thum in support of “Palestine”:

“Take me with you to Palestine, oh menI want to live or die like menNow I have a rifleSay to those who ask about my causeThat now the rifle is the causeNow I have a rifle, now I'm on the list of rebelsI'll trample the thorns and the dust, I'll wear death"
