ekker ay amghid : Workers Of The World Unite

The song amghid - song5- is about imghiden, the workers and their struggle. A song of univesal appeal. Salim at his best!


ekker ay amghid!

yetchenegh usallas

Tirzag TmedurT, aghrum damessas

netazzel nkhadem , yuwanegh u nezgum

win yessussmem, u3aniT d-aserdun

netchnin nemmuT, g wammas n luzinet

f ighallen nnegh, s3alan lvilaT

amk nettazzel f ughrum amessas

ikhf u yur a nef amarwas

yenghanegh lham, laz nhennaT

ekker ay aguellil!

yetchanegh usalless

Tamza Tussid, Tessen3aT Tighmass

nehnin am tamza, gguren deg usallass

wa yuDin zinnegh, ad 3afsen fellas

ay ghaDan d-irgazen yenzin su sordi n Hass

ay ghaDan d-igallilen ittarjin s fawet n wass.


Wake up, worker!

we are overwhelmed by darkness

Life became a living hell

we keep working for a lousy living

If you don't resist you will be stepped on

While we are sweating it up in factories

They built castles on our suffering

We struggle for a meagre living

By the end of the month we are in debt


We don't know what lies ahead

Wake up, struggler!

we are overwhelmed by darkness

Tamza* has arrived, showing its teeth

Like Tamza, they are plotting in darkness

They crash the most venerable of us

I feel sorry for the men, sold for a penny

I feel sorry for the poor, dreaming of dawn

* Ogress. In other words, bosses, corporations, govt....
