The Toi Toi-

The toi toi toi toi toi toilet
I've been patient for long and never got anything out of it
I'm living in the depths1 and I got a headache
And everyday the pains increase, in the toi toi toilet2
 
They conned us in our life and summarized all our stories
I was a pretty and cute guy until I was kicked down
Since then I am helpless and life is running in reverse for me
 
Visual and noise pollution, I can't hide my tears, oh people
Life goes by and has no mercy, years pass and they cannot be made up
I am a cog in a machine that doesn't run; ever since I was young I have been waiting for my turn
 
The toi toi toi toi toi toilet
I've been patient for long and never got anything out of it
I'm living in the depths1 and I got a headache
And everyday the pains increase, in the toi toi toilet2
 
Everyday I run myself ragged and I suffer even to get the simplest things
Life in its entirety is not smooth, and my own life is a battle
I don't know whether I should take cover, or whether I should bail and emigrate
 
The traffic lights are always red for us; and everything is a conspiracy
I got the degree, dear [listener], and I let it [rot] with me3
And you know what I mean, since you too have done the same
 
The toi toi toi toi toi toilet
I've been patient for long and never got anything out of it
I'm living in the depths1 and I got a headache
And everyday the pains increase, in the toi toi toilet2
 
My dreams are sweet oh people, for everyone.. that we would live together, you and I, wonderfully
My dreams are always shunned amidst elderly minds
What did I do wrong to deserve carrying this sad burden? And my mistake is that I tried to dream
 
I a locked in the toilet; I spoke, I said and revolted
I tried to rise above [it] and to make an attempt, All failed for me before I even got close4
I am all lost, all messed up.. The people who are above you want you to go down
 
The toi toi toi toi toi toilet
I've been patient for long and never got anything out of it
I'm living in the depths1 and I got a headache
And everyday the pains increase, in the toi toi toilet2
 
  • 1. a. b. c. d. I.e: My life is extremely low/I'm very poor
  • 2. a. b. c. d. The whole song points to his life being "in the toilet." So, these are allusions to this idiom.
  • 3. I.e.: I got the degree but never found a use for it
  • 4. Here he uses an idiom, literally it says "I was given the soap". This is in colloquial Egyptian means to fail or to be ignored.
Let me know if you have any questions about my translation. Good luck.
