"Indian Girl" as written by and Mick/richards Jagger....
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 the girl who said

"Please Mister Gringo, please find my father"
Lesson number one that you learn while you're young
Life just goes on and on getting harder and harder
Little Indian girl, from Nueva, Granada

Little Indian girl, from Nueva, Granada
Yes, I saw them today. It's a sight I would say
They're shooting down planes with their M-16 and with laughter

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
All the children were dead, except for the girl who said
"Please Mister Gringo, please find my father"

Lesson number one that you learn while you're young
Life just goes on and on getting harder and harder
Life just goes on and on getting harder and harder
Little Indian girl, from Nueva, Granada

Yes, I saw them today. It's a sight I would say
They're shooting down planes with their M-16 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?
Little Indian girl where is your momma?
They're fighting for Mr. Castro in the streets of Angola

    General CommentBeing married to Bianca a Nicaraguan, Jagger was in a position to witness atrocities against and to become an activist on behalf of Indians in Central America. After the earthquake of 74? the Stones did some benifit concerts to help. Bianca has used her money and influence for various social causes. A Nicaraguan comedian who had been a 1970s unicef kid thanked Bianca during a performance by saying"For us she was like mother Theresa in Gucci" referring to Bianca's fasion sense. The U.S. government was complicent in supporting dictatorships throughout the region during this time. I suspect that that is why Bianca bailed Julian Assange of WikiLeaks out of jail. He has published many articles regarding the CIA and other U.S. involvement in Central America which caused untold death and destruction amongst the poor. Castro and his Angolan escapades are the root of this particular Indian girl's suffering but Jagger could have chosen a dozen other themes that would have been equally powerful.
