She spent all her days
With her head in her books
Never cared much to agonize
Over her looks

But the boys would all whisper
And motion and stare
All the girls would just mutter
That it wasn't fair

She would move onto college
And get her degree
Go to med school
And then do her residency

But a suitor came calling
When she turned sixteen
And he didn't quite care for her
Frivolous dreams

He said
Women aren't made to
Make ends meet
You need a hard working
Husband like me
Ya Aziza, Ya habibi
I'll pay
For you to belong to me

Her father was looking
To give her away
Her mother just listened
To what he would say

That Aziza was woman
And soon should be wed
That all of this schooling
Was ruining her head

And Baba said
Ya Aziza, ya habibi
Come down from the clouds
And face your destiny
Ya Aziza, ya binti
A mother is what we expect you to be

So they painted her hands
And he gave her a ring
And the girls started dancing
And began to sing

What a wonderful wedding
They said to the bride
Never stopping to think
She was broken inside

He said
Ya Aziza, ya habibi
You must stay home
And raise our family
Ya Aziza, ya rouhi
I want our son to
Grow up just like me
