My rights, yours rights, our rights
Human Rights
From a mechanic shop came a cry of a boy
What are my rights? Education or being a mechanic

My rights, your rights, our rights
Human Rights
From a house came a cry of a girl
What are my rights? Doing the household work like a slave or education

My rights, your rights, our rights
Human Rights
From a house came a cry of a women
What are my rights? Being made a slave or a free citizen

My rights, your rights. our rights
Human Rights
