| Ah see ka tar (le), no mar si
See see mise ay ling koo loo lay ko (x2)
Oon zee ma lung twa lo,
Oo foo na ma do da, (x2)
We are the children of Palestine, and it's for freedom that were fighting now
Chorus after verse 2:
A heavy load, a heavy load, And it will take some real strength
We're not afraid of the prison walls, It is for freedom that we go now.
They took our land and they took our homes,
how much longer will they bleed us
In Gaza they shot us down, but we shall rise up united.

Soprano: Oon zi ma ------lom thwa lo, U fu na a ma do da
Tenor:---------Un zi ma lom thwa lo, U fu na a ma do da
