Lyrics

KOL ISHA

Kol Isha, Kol Isha, Kol Isha
Kol Isha, Kol Isha, Kol Isha

Kol Isha
A woman’s voice is naked, forbidden
Don’t raise that sweet sound in front of men
Silence, silence girls
Sit quietly
Don’t sing out loud
It might arouse attention

Kol Isha, Kol Isha, Kol Isha
Kol Isha, Kol Isha, Kol Isha

When I was twelve
I sat behind the great divide
On the women’s side I could only listen
How I wanted to be the one
Who sang for the many
The favorite son
But daughters were raised on modesty
I wanted to be free

Kol Isha, Kol Isha, Kol Isha
Kol Isha, Kol Isha, Kol Isha

The bible says Deborah sang in victory
And Miriam sang her song at the sea

A woman’s voice
Is the boundless force of life unhidden
We cry, we laugh, we shout, we sing
Let us sing

Kol Isha, Kol Isha, Kol Isha
Kol Isha, Kol Isha, Kol Isha
