Sisters, O Sisters

-"Male chauvinist pig engineer, ha! Ha!"
-"right on, sister!"

We lost our green land, we lost our clean air,
We lost our true wisdom and we live in despair.

O sisters, o sisters, let's stand up right now,
it's never too late to start from the start.
O wisdom, o wisdom, that's what we ask for,
and, yes, my dear sisters, we must learn to ask.

Wisdom, o wisdom, that's what we ask for,
that's what we live for no-oo-ow.
Wisdom, o wisdom, that's what we ask for,
that's what we live for no-oo-ow.

O sisters, o sisters, let's wake up right now,
it's never too late to shout from our hearts.
O freedom, o freedom, that's what we fight for,
and, yes, my dear sisters, we must learn to fight.

Freedom, o freedom, that's what we ask for,
that's what we live for no-oo-ow.
O freedom, o freedom, that's what we ask for,
that's what we live for no-oo-ow.

O sisters, o sisters, let's give up no more,
it's never too late to build a new world.
O new world, o new world, that's what we live for,
and, yes, my dear sisters, we must learn to live.

New world, o new world, that's what we live for,
that's what we must now learn to build.
O new world, o new world, that's what we live for,
that's what we must now learn to build.

New world, o new world, that's what we live for,
that's what we must now learn to build.
O new world, o new world, that's what we live for,
that's what we must now learn to build.
