School Girl Blues

Our school girls have been stolen from their school
Our sweet girls have been taken from the school
By gunmen teaching lessons rough and cruel

In matching skirts, with shirts that button white
They saved for skirts, with shirts that button white
Frightened now in dirt, crying in the night

Our girls were learning history and math
Just daughters reading history and math
A crime their captors say worth Allah’s wrath

Who comes to save our girls from sale and death?
Who rescues girls for sale and certain death?
They wait and wail but nothing’s happened yet

Our girls, good girls, deserve our full will fight
Hold on sweet ones, we’re going to make this right
