                C                                   G

    all the laughter has turned to crying,

                    Em                           D                              C

    while the mothers lose their children, from war to war.

             Em                    D               C                      G

    I am hungry and I’m cold, and I have no one to hold,

           Em                   D                               C     - D                        Em

    my mother and my father are dead and gone.      Where do I belong ?

2. They have beaten my older brother, they have torn away my sister,

             Em                 D                                     C

    I’m afraid I want revenge, is there no other way ?

                           Em                    D                 C                    G

    Let’s hold our hands tightly together and make as one forever,
