Frontpage of Women for Peace's songbook

They can forbid nearly everything
But they can't forbid me to think
And they can't forbid my tears to flow
And they can't shut my mouth when I sing.

They can forbid nearly everything
But they can't forbid me to think
And they can't forbid the flowers to grow
And they can't shut my mouth when I sing.

They can forbid nearly everything
But they can't forbid me to think
And they can't forbid the sun to shine
And they can't shut my mouth when I sing.
