Lyrics
Sing a song for the daughters of Magdalene
All tied up in their white ribbon.
November came and before I got your letter
I will love you better, I will love you true.

Everyday I would wait by the gates for you,
With time how your heart withdrew.
You said I never understand the pain or share the shame,
but you know that I want to.

But you give me hope and now you take it away,
You took my love and now you celebrate.
When the morning comes, no I don't believe
In my God, oh my God how could you take her from me?

So I told, and the sisters of mercy came
by your school just yesterday.
I never meant for to cause you any pain
I wanna make it better, make it go away.

So sing a song for the daughters of Magdalene,
all smothered neath the white ribbon.
If Mary knew how she was being used,
so misconstrued how you were being used.

But you give me hope and now you take it away,
You took my love and now you celebrate.
When the morning comes, no I don't believe
In my God, oh my God how could you take her from me?

You give me hope and now you take it away,
You took my love and now you celebrate.
When the morning comes, no I don't believe
In my God, oh my God how could you take her from me?
