Egypt TV bans ‘romantic’ songs due to political upheaval

Egypt has banned the broadcasting of any “romantic” songs or video clips on its 23 state-owned channels, only allowing “patriotic” music, the state-run Ahram Arabic website said.

Only patriotic tunes “that are worth broadcasting” will be allowed, al-Ahram reported today. Sarcastic songs mocking public figures will be also banned because of the “sensitiveness of the political situation,” it said.

Egyptians will begin voting on Dec. 15 in a referendum on a draft constitution that has polarized voters and led to weeks of violent protests.

    There once was a fellow named Lew,
    Who said, ‘Screwing humans won’t do,
    for there is nothing above
    that good ovine love,
    for my motto is”I Love Ewe.”‘

    Hello, I love ewe
    Won’t ewe tell me ewer name?
    Hello, I love ewe
    Let MoHOMOd jump in ewer game
    Hello, I love ewe
    Won’t ewe tell me ewer name?
    Hello, I love ewe
    Let me jump in ewer game

    She’s grazing down the street
    All the hajjis wacking meat
    Do ewe think ewe’ll be the guy
    To make the queen of the goat family sigh?

    Hello, I love ewe
    Won’t ewe tell me ewer name?
    Hello, I love ewe
    Let Hussein jump in ewer game
    Hello, I love ewe
    Won’t ewe tell me ewer name?
    Hello, I love ewe
    Let me jump in ewer game

    She holds her head so high
    Like a black eyed virgin in the sky
    Her tail is wicked, and her legs are long
    When she moves my brain screams out from my thong

    Sidewalk crouches at her feet
    Like a Moslem dog that beats halal meat
    Do ewe hope to make her see, ewe fool?
    Do ewe hope to **uck this dusky jewel?

    Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello
    I want ewe
    Hello
    I need my baby
    Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello
