Shaaban Abdel Rahim's Obama song

Shaaban Abdel Rahim by Youssef Nabil.

Shaaban's Obama song

This has been out a while but it's actually the first time I get hold on a MP3 file. [Thanks, Max]

Selected lyrics:
"Bush goes and Obama comes"
"People think Obama will be Saladin"
"But Palestine is still occupied and Iraq is still at war"
"Let's hope Obama isn't like Bush"
