Little Indian girl, where is your mama?
Little Indian girl, where is your papa?
He's fighting in the war in the streets of Masaya
All the children were dead
Except for one girl who said
"Please Mr. Gringo, please find my father"
And I say
Lesson number one
That I (you) learn(ed) while I was (you're) young:
Life just goes on and on, getting harder and harder
Little Indian girls from Nueva Granada
Ma says there's no food, there's nothing left in the larder
Last piece of meat was eaten by the soldiers that raped her
Yes, I saw them today
It's a sight I would say
They're shooting down planes with their M-16s and with laughter
"Mr. Gringo, my father he ain't no Che Guevara
And he's fighting the war on the streets of Masaya"
Little Indian girl, where is your father?
Indian girl, where is your mama?
They're fighting for Mr. Castro in the streets of Angola
