For two years I did to work brick kiln job
But then boss he said that no more job
Boss got more boys and he let me to go
Because I was girl and I was not strong
So then I was sad – because I knew it was now coal
Orangi children do not like work coal job, you see?
But if you have no other job still you must to eat
So when I was six I did to start my coal mine job
Always the wood beam roof they are so creaky
And you think they might to break and then…
… And then the whole coal mine can collapse
But coal boss he said me – no – do not worry little girl
But wood beam is very creaky. Coal mine is very dark.
