Lyrics

Come listen to her story with me
In a world of opportunity
A little girl has lots to say
But everyone's so far away
Come listen to her story with me

Her tiny life and tiny hands shake
Ashamed of her unknown mistake
A child’s hopes and tears in vain
She believes she is to blame
Listen to her story with me

Ya Ummathi (Oh my People), answer me
Why am I suffering this way?
Ummathi, I am so afraid
Don't I have the right to learn and play?

A silent call to you and me
Too caught up with our lives to hear or see
We will answer to Allah one day
Then what will we have to say
For busy lives so void of mercy?

Ya Ummathi, answer me
Why am I suffering this way?
Ummathi, I am so afraid
Don't I have the right to learn and play?

Allah created beauty, innocence and peace
And He blessed us with the children to remind us all of these
Allah entrusted to us all a gift to hold so near
To teach with love, teach how to love
Allah's command is clear

In Allah's Garden, there’s a flower at play
The abandoned gift we turned away
Had we only been brave enough to hear
Her playground prayer to our deaf ear
Her smile might not haunt us today

Ya Ummathi, answer me
Why am I suffering this way?
Ummathi, I am so afraid
Don't I have the right to learn and play?

Ya Ummathi, we all know the answer
The ignorance must end today
Ummathi, open up your heart
Every child has the right to learn and play
Every child has the right to grow and pray
