ILILI

There was a time 'fore Man was born
Before his eyes op'd to the morn
When from his mother he was torn
Ah-ah, Ilili

She was a woman of such grace
And there was beauty in her face
And she was mother of his race
Ah-ah, Ilili

Never before had a woman been seen
Never before had they known
Never before had a woman been queen on the throne

But they accepted her as rule
And there was no one thought a fool
And they rejected aught so cruel
Ah-ah, Ilili

Never before had a woman been seen
Never before had they known
Never before had a woman been queen on the throne

But they accepted her as rule
And there was no one thought a fool
And they rejected aught so cruel
Ah-ah, Ilili
