We must go now
Past the well, past the well
‘Cuz the air is ringing
From the bell, from the bell
And the siege is coming
Yes you know, yes you know
That we can’t be here
We must go, we must go

The ships are coming
In the night, in the night
And the army’s preparing
For the fight, for the fight
And we must run out
To the bay, to the bay
And melt in the grass
Where we lay, where we lay

We’ll sum up our courage
On the shore, on the shore
With our guns in our hands
All aboard, all aboard
Then we’ll run to the ocean
To the sand, to the sand
And out on a ship

‘Til we land, ‘til we land

Far on the waters
Where we’re free, where we’re free
And we won’t pay the tax
On the tea, on the tea
We can take all our forces
To the king, to the king
We will take back our rights
Then we’ll sing, then we’ll sing
