The Lyrics

The awful old bane met his doom
He was a bad man, had to go

Meet the new boss, same
(As old, as old)
As the old, one more fascist Pharaoh

Threw out Mubarak, who was vile
Now he’s gone, what did they get?

Just another pile full of steam
(Same old, same old)
Not a better bet

Hosni blight’s now a Morsi plight, same
(Same old, same old)
One more slime Egyptian

Hosni’s fate was, go away
They took him down but then they got more
Although he’s new
(Same old, same old)
Morsi’s just another festering sore

And the new king makes Hosni look
In retrospect, perhaps not as bad
’Nother buzzkill king
(Same old, same old)
They got one more slime Egyptian

And the kids in Tahrir Square say
“’Way go, ’way go
One more slime Egyptian!”

One was beat, in retreat
What came back
To take his place, a new face, same tack

Life’s hard in Cairo
(Cairo, Cairo)
Some Pharaoh’s always on the attack

You’re gonna find most all the cops
Take orders from the guy at the top
(Same old, same old)
Bring their clubs down on your mop

Now it’s happening again
And both names even start with “M”
A new file Pharaoh
(Pharaoh, Pharaoh)
In line of slimy Egyptians

It won’t stop till they all go away
(’Way go, ’way go)

Wreck lives of Egyptians

Great stuff, Sam - inspired song match. I especially like the backing lines: same old, Cairo, Pharoah. Fives, one for each millennium of that troubled region.

And everyone thought that Regime change in Egypt had to be an improvement. Wrong! Well expressed, SS.
