Paroles Aung San Suu Kyi

Le - Par .

Aung San Su Kyi will be gone and
she'll be on a T-shirt
The marketing's good
Monks are dying
Soldier children crying
We're playing bubbles
With four year old curls
Torture, drug deals
Finance our dreams
Why should we care
The stock market's good

Petrol's booming
Generals' wooing
Trucks ares looming
In Rangun
We know your faces
Come out and die
And welcome the
Tourists under the
Burmese sky
But tomorrow Christine and
Me feel just the same
Without china tea

2008 "Amnesty report" Burma
the 8th.8th.88 the people's uprising was bloodily and brutally repressed by the military junte
Twenty years of prison and torture would follow

In 1990 Aung San Su Kyi and her democratic party
Won the general election by eighty three per cent
In 1991 she won the Nobel peace price
70 000 children are soldiers
10 children out of 100 don't get to live to five years old

Ang San Suu Kyi will be gone and
She'll be on a T-shirt
The marketing's good
Monks are dying
Soldier children crying
We're playing bubbles
With four year old curls
But tomorrow Christine and
Me feel just the same
Maybe shade a tear in our china tea
But tomorrow the world will see
We did nothing for Ang San Suu Kyi

2008 Amnesty report Burma
Birma is one of the poorest country in the world but one of the richest in jewels, drugs, teck petrol natural gas, Total's pipe lines give the military junte more than a million dollars a day

Birma has one of the worst records for child mortality and aids
The international comity of the Red Cross withdrew from Burma because it could not fulfill its mission. No one knows the numbers of the tortured the numbers of the dead.
