Those who start wars, never fight them
And those who fight wars, they never like them
And those who write laws, they can't recite them
And those of us who just fight laws, we live and die them

But I know they never gonna you tell why, no
They only wanna tell you lies, no
Never ever gonna tell you why no
They only wanna tell you lies, no

Never ever gonna tell you why no
They only wanna tell you lies, no
It's time, it's time to go home

Don't take our boys away, no
Don't take our girls away, no
Don't take our boys away, no
Don't take our girls away, no

It's time to go home
Don't take our boys away, no
Don't take our girls away, no
Don't take our boys away, no

Those who build walls are pretending
That forever they can defend them
And those who dam streams can build fountains, yes they can
But those of us who just let them run free, we can move mountains

But I know they never gonna tell you why, no
They only wanna tell you lies, no
Never ever gonna tell you why no
They only wanna tell you lies, no

Never ever gonna tell you why no
They only wanna tell you lies, no
It's time, it's time to go home

Don't take our boys away, no
Don't take our girls away, no
Don't take our boys away, no
Don't take our girls away, no

It's time to go home
Don't take our boys away, no
Don't take our girls away, no
Don't take our boys away, no

It's time, it's time

How many people were they runnin' frownin'?
How many people never saw a chromin'?
How many people never heard the warnin'?
How many people never stayed a home in?

How many people never heard the callin'?
How many people never saw it on in?
How many people did they spend it on in?
How many people got to sing a song in?

How many people never heard the cryin'?
How many people got 'em pushed to sideways?
How many people never saw the dust fly?
How many people never say goodbye?

How many people never saw the fallin'?
How many people did we end it all in?
How many people never saw the wrong in?
How many people did they grab the ground?

Don't take our boys away, no
Don't take our girls away, no
Don't take our boys away, no
Don't take our girls away, no

Don't take our boys away, no
Don't take our girls away, no
Don't take our boys away, no

It's time, it's time to go home
