I am a maiden, one of 93
but I won't die the least bit mysteriously
I go to school in the town of Warsaw
today they came for us all
I am a girl but they are not men
I am a woman but don't know it yet
I have a brother but don't know his name
he was born in the barracks in shame

Mama where are you, where have you gone?
I need you with me to drink the poison
for I'm nobody's martyr, only your daughter
I'll reach you when I reach heaven

One of them spoke with a terrible voice, he said:
"Make yourselves beautiful - you have no choice
we'll come for your refinery soon
by tomorrow we'll blacken the moon!"

Mama where are you, where have you gone?
I need you with me to drink the poison
for I'm nobody's martyr, only your daughter
I'll reach you when I reach heaven

Blessed art thou oh lord our God
King of the universe there I must stop..
what is the blessing for taking our lives
so that we won't become our enemies wives

Blessed art thou oh lord our God
King of the universe there I must stop..
what is the blessing for taking our lives
so that we won't become our enemies wives

Mama where are you, where have you gone?
I need you with me to drink the poison
for I'm nobody's martyr, only your daughter
I'll reach you when I reach heaven
...I'll meet you when I reach heaven.
