Poetry month – Ally Oxen Free – Camps song

Time to let the rain fall without the help of man
Time to let the trees grow tall now if they only can
Time to let our children live in a land that’s free
Ally ally ee, Ally oxen free
Allly ee ally oxen free.

Time to blow the smoke away and look at the stars again
Time to let our friends all know we’d like to begin again
Time to send a message across the land and sea.
Ally ally ee ally oxen free
Ally ee, ally oxen free

Small and weak, mild and meek
No more hide and seek.

Time to see the fairness of a children’s game
Time for men to stop and look and learn to do the same
Time to let our children live in a land that’s free.
Ally ally ee, ally oxen free
Ally ee ally oxen free
