  1. Oh father you had told me when I was younger
    There would come a time when we would arrive in Karbala
    A caravan so full with brothers, nephews and your sons
    But how it would be massacred and be so empty
    I never thought that this could be so, (where would my Abbas be?) x2
  2. Oh Ali what has now happened (where are you my father?) x2

  3. The tortures that I've faced the insults that have been thrown
    They snatched away my veil father, my hair was shown
    How much will we have to suffer and go on in pain?
    Oh ummah do you not remember we are Ahlul Bayt
    That adhaan you hear now Yazid, talks about my grandfather (x2)

  5. When Hind came down into the cells to see the commotion
    She came to find the reasons for our sufferings and our plight
    Oh prisoners what have you done to deserve this treatment
    Then she remembered that she had seen, my face before
    Oh Lady Zainab it can't be, are my eyes deceiving me (x2)

  7. In Sham the tyrant Yazid was celebrating
    Raising his brows he taunted and paraded us around
    He said: "Throw Fizza aside so I can see Zainab"
    But Fizza boldly said to him, "Desist from evilness
    If you do this blood will flow now like water inside your court" (x2)

  9. The horse came near and I cried out, we have nothing
    The hooves beat on the desert sand as it came closer by
    Stop please the children will wake up they've suffered oh so much
    The riders face came into view could it be my father?
    Sorrow written grief stricken too, sombreness all over (x2)

Oh Ali what has now happened (where are you my father?) x2
