Lyrics

Mujercita de africa, viviendo en tierra ajena.
Morenita de Africa…ah, ah, ah, ah-ah-ah

Verse 1
China…dark-skinned woman from Uganda
viviendo día por día
You were separated from your family,
Separada de tu alma.

Verse 2
You were a little girl with a grown-up gun,
tristemente no fuiste la única,
forced into a million atrocities,
cosas que no se podría creer.

Chorus
It seems like a world away,
another time, another place.
We turn away from all your pain,
as if you were a different race

Verse 3
Now that little soldier with the grown-up gun,
es mujer sin hogar.
They took her virginity, and her sanity,
and now she’s haunted by the memories, los recuerdos...

Chorus
Seems like a world away,
another time, another place.
We turn away from all your pain,
as if you were so different --
It seems like a world away,
another time, another place.
But it’s not so far away.
It’s in this time and in this face.

Mujercita de africa, viviendo en tierra ajena.
Morenita de africa, muriendo de soledad.
