palestinian-children



Palestine. A ferocious war waged against women and children...
I just want a little peace
To watch my children grow
I don't want a bomb crater
To be my baby's home...
Be strong, be strong. We've got to go on.

Be strong. Be strong.
For the struggle must go on.
Until our little town of Bethlehem – is free.

For forty long years
I lived threw the hard days
Watching Israeli gunmen
Take our children's lives away...
Be strong, be strong. We've got to go on.

Be strong. Be strong.
For the struggle must go on.
Until our little town of Bethlehem is free.

Children playing in the streets
As tanks go rolling by
The sound of a rifle
And another mother screams...
Be strong, be strong. We've got to go on.

Be strong. Be strong.
For the struggle must go on.
Until our little town of Bethlehem is free.

Will the school bell rings
To the sound of children songs
Until an American -made shell
Turns their class room in to hell..
Be strong, be strong. We've got to go on.

Be strong. Be strong.
For the struggle must go on.
Until our little town of Bethlehem is free.

A fourteen year old boy
Playing football with his friends
Until the crake of a gun
Brinks his young life to an end...
Be strong, be strong. We've got to go on.

Be strong. Be strong.
For the struggle must go on.
Until our little town of Bethlehem -is free.


Be strong. Be strong.
For the struggle must go on.
Until our little town of Bethlehem -is free.

How long – will it take
Until Palestine is free.
Another forty years
of blood, death and tears..
Be strong... Be strong. We've got to go on..
