Official PA TV reporter: "The songs performed at the concert, such as the song: 'I'm coming towards you, my enemy’ which appeared after a series of military operations by Palestinian factions against the Israeli occupation at the end of the ’60s, and other songs, show the connection between these revolutionary songs and the current situation, in light of the the popular uprising."

Song: “Where are the Millions”
Lyrics: "The revolution [needs] men, it is not bought with money
The revolution [needs] men, it is not bought with money
The revolution of a people holding rocks against fleets…"

The following are the lyrics of “I’m coming towards you:”
“I'm coming towards you, my enemy,
We're going down from every house with cleavers and knives,
With grenades we announced a popular war.
I swear, you won't escape, my enemy,
from the revolution and the people.
How will you escape the ring of fire,
while the crowds are blocking the way?”

The following are the lyrics of “Where are the Millions:”
“Where are the millions?‎
Where is the Arab people?‎
Where is the Arab rage?‎
Where is the Arab blood?‎
Where is the Arab honor?‎
Where are the millions? Where?‎
People lie in comfortable beds while millions suffer
In my chest is a [whole] gun magazine, where are you, my brothers?‎
The revolution [needs] men, it is not bought with money
The revolution of a people holding rocks against fleets
‎[They] sacrificed from young to old, out of obligation and not as a kindness...‎
Allah is with us. He is stronger and greater than the Children of Zion
Even if they hang, kill and bury [me], my land will not be humiliated
My red blood will water the green with the flavor of lemon
The fire of revolution is getting stronger and flaring up. We are the victors.”‎
