O DÍA DA MULLER

Dentro dos actos que se están a celebrar no noso centro arredor do día da muller, a biblioteca aportou unha escolma de poemas e letras de cancións alusivas a este tema en diferentes linguas. Un deles é unha canción de Tracy Chapman, "She's got her ticket". Aquí tedes a letra, e se queredes escoitala e ver o videoclip ao mesmo tempo, facede click na seguinte imaxe:

She's got her ticket
I think she gonna use it
I think she going to fly away
No one should try and stop her
Persuade her with their power
She says that her mind is made Up
Why not leave why not
Go away
Too much hatred
Corruption and greed
Give your life
And invariably they leave you with Nothing
Young girl ain't got no chances
No roots to keep her strong
She's shed all pretenses
That someday she'll belong
Some folks call her a runaway
A failure in the race
But she knows where her ticket takes her
She will find her place in the sun
Why not leave why not
Go away
Too much hatred
Corruption and greed
Give your life
And invariably they leave you with
Nothing
She's got her ticket
I think she gonna use it
I think she going to fly away
No one should try and stop her
Persuade her with their power
She says that her mind is made Up
And she'll fly, fly, fly...
