A woman came and said to me 
She'd seen a lady sell her baby 
For ten or twenty dollars maybe 
And everybody thinks she's crazy 
They're too blind to see 
She never failed to call attention 
To the things we never ment
Real horror, daily, courtesy of your T-V 
C'est La Vie 

A woman came and said to me 
Now listen very carefully 
There's brother killing brother 
People living on their knees 
Biting sugar coated bullets 
For the pain of this disease 
C'est La Vie 

A woman came and said to me 
She had a husband on an island 
Found his body on a wasteland 
Soldiers came and took him 
Just to torture her you see
C'est la vie 
All alone she mourned her lover 
Crossed the sea to find a brother 
Maybe he could help her get her baby back for free
