Testo The Lioness

Testo The Lioness

They said that times were hard for honest men
But she didn't give a damn because she wasn't one of them
I don't mean to imply that she ever told a lie
But she was raised in the harem and told to keep quiet

She isn't gonna hide her face anymore
She isn't gonna know her place anymore
Married off young and set aside
Huda always burned bright, she wasn't one to hide
She taught herself languages and poetry
She taught herself to speak so she could set herself free
Look on her works, ye mighty men
She opened up the harem, they can't close it up again
She stepped off a ledge and let herself fall free
She stepped off the train and into history

She isn't gonna hide her face anymore
She isn't gonna know her place anymore
She isn't gonna hide her face anymore
She isn't gonna know her place anymore

Huda Sha'arawi was the Lioness' name A heart well-fed, eyes aflame
A face uncovered showing what she overcame
Huda is the Lioness, she won't be tamed

She isn't gonna hide her face anymore
She isn't gonna know her place anymore
She isn't gonna hide her face anymore
She isn't gonna know her place anymore

She isn't gonna hide her face
Everyone should know her name
She isn't gonna know her place
The Lioness will not be tamed
She isn't gonna hide her face
Everyone should know her name
She isn't gonna know her place
The Lioness will not be tamed
