Sometimes tears have to drop But too many tears turn into blood

Oh Palestine my ancestors' land

Your earth has turned into red-colored sand

In it you have buried so many boys

Innocent, young still playing with toys

But their little hearts have turned into men

So fast before they had a chance to begin

A life like other men with family and kin

Born into their own country they face persecution

And live their lives full of confusion

Oh little boy playing with sand

Shot dead from snipers in your own land

Mother's tears fall like razor sharp

Penetrating down deep with permanent scars
