It’s a girl (lyrics to the hip-hop song)

200,000,000 missing, not talkin’ ’bout money see

Talkin’ about somethin’ worth more than currency

Talkin’ about missin’ girls the foundation of a nation

But born in India and China brings damnation

Desperation, having a girl brings trepidation

So being born a girl leads to deadly devastation

Baby girls bouncing from the womb to the tomb

Delivery room delivering gendercide too soon

How have we forgotten that the woman is key

To open the future’s door for our children to see?

The phrase “it’s a girl!” should bring cause to rejoice

But we kill innocent victims who have no choice

No say in the way they will die this way

Parents leave their land so daughters won’t die today

We’re killin’ our seeds we gotta tell the world

So parents can say proudly “It’s a girl!”

Can’t see women as a burden, men gotta realize

Gotta save the people that hold up half the sky

Family planning police planning family murderin’

Just because they think havin’ a girl is a burden

It’s not about condemning culture but saving lives

Dowry deaths for those left wondering why?

Why oh why not practice safer sex

Than kill a girl who had nothing to do with this?

Buy her, sell her, kill her, keep her!

Sex shouldn’t lead to visits from the grim reaper

India and China, what you gonna do?

When there’s nothing but men in your countries too?

Can’t import wives like you might do food

See the value of your girls, don’t kill ’em so soon

A woman’s body is not a boy factory

We gotta give our girls the right to be born and be free!
