Nuba Song
By Daniel Lupinski


Young girl in the Nuba Mountains,
Young girl in the Nuba Mountains knows nothin about war.
Young girl in the Nuba Mountains,
Young girl in the Nuba Mountains her mama donít speak anymore.
Young girl in the Nuba Mountains,
Young girl in the Nuba Mountains her body shattered and torn.
Young girl in the Nuba Mountains,
Young girl in the Nuba Mountains she donít walk anymore.

Young boy in the Nuba Mountains,
Young boy in the Nuba Mountains lost his family in this war.
Young boy in the Nuba Mountains,
Young boy in the Nuba Mountains he donít smile anymore.
Young boy in the Nuba Mountains,
Young boy in the Nuba Mountains carries a gun and sleeps on the floor.
Young boy in the Nuba Mountains,
Young boy in the Nuba Mountains he donít feel to much anymore.

CHORUS:
They call this a holy war in the name of God they pray to,
All the children they kill to, all the women they rape to.
They call this a holy war in the name of God they pray to,
All the men they enslave to, and send to an early grave to.
They call this a civil war in the name of oil they sell to,
All the countries make the guns and shells to,
Make the bombs that maime the little children to.
They call this a civil war in the name of oil they sell to,
All the countries make the tanks and planes to,
That live in wealth from all the profits of this holy war to.

Young woman in the Nuba Mountains,
Young woman in the Nuba Mountains lost her man in this war.
Young woman in the Nuba Mountains,
Young woman in the Nuba Mountains she donít speak to much anymore.
Young woman in the Nuba Mountains,
Young woman in the Nuba Mountains her spirit shattered and torn.
Young woman in the Nuba Mountains,
Young woman in the Nuba Mountains she donít want to fight anymore.

Young man in the Nuba Mountains,
Young man in the Nuba Mountains they came knockin at his door.
Young man in the Nuba Mountains,
Young man in the Nuba Mountains made a soldier to fight in this holy war.
Young man in the Nuba Mountains,
Young man in the Nuba Mountains his spirit shattered and torn.
Young man in the Nuba Mountains,
Young man in the Nuba Mountains donít wanna kill his people anymore.
