We are 34 Million Friends

by Jane Roberts 

WE are 34 million friends
We ARE 34 million friends
We are 34 MILLION friends
Of the women of the world


We are reaching out to the world
We are going to have our say
We are reaching out to the world
Through the UNFPA


Every baby welcome now
Loved and fed and vaccinated
Mothers children learning now
Reading writing educated


Every child a heartfelt joy
Every child a book and toy
Every child with wings unfurled
Whether it be boy or GIRL


No more death while giving birth
Because a midwife's taking care
No more mothers in the earth
Because a midwife's helping there


To AIDS and violence we say NO
To family planning we say YES
Human rights are the way to go
Surely we can do no less


Woman lying on a donkey cart
Dirt road heat wave and in labor
Doctor put her in his truck
Luck that day was in her favor


And all of us who have so much
One dollar we can share
To show the women of the world
That we the people care


We are 34 Million Friends
And we are going to have our say
We are reaching out to the world     
Through the UNFPA
