It's windows all over (a song)

The song

The nice song is called “Shababeik” which means windows. Sung by Mohamed Mounir. The poet Magdy Naguib thought about it while he was politically imprisoned for opposing the controversial yet widely influencial Egyptian president Nasser who ruled from 1954 till 1962. The poet was deeply affected by being imprisoned with no trial as a form of political tyranny. Although he was a supporter of Nasser and just wanted to express opinion, he was still falsly imprisoned.
