The story of Bangladesh
Is an ancient one again made fresh
By blind men who carry out commands
Which flow out of the laws upon which nations stand
Which say to sacrifice a people for a land

Chorus:
Bangladesh, Bangladesh, Bangladesh, Bangladesh
When the sun sinks in the west
Die a million people of the Bangladesh

Once again we stand aside
And watch the families crucified
See a teenage mothers vacant eyes
As she watches her feeble baby try
To fight the monsoon rains
And the cholera flies.
And the students at the university
Asleep at night quite peacefully
The soldiers came and shot them in their beds
And terror took the dorm, awakening shrieks of dread
And the silent frozen forms and pillows drenched in red.

Chorus

Did you read about the army officer's plea
For donors' blood - it was given willingly
By boys who took the needle in their veins
And from their bodies every drop of blood was drained
No time to comprehend and there was little pain.
And so the story of Bangladesh
Is an ancient one again made fresh
By all who carry out commands
Which flow out of the laws upon which nations stand
Which say to sacrifice a people for a land.

Chorus
