Time to breakout
Now it's time to go
Try to breakout or you'll never know
So have a drink or 3 and sing with me
Wild rover
Roam 'til you're free
In the days of 1916, back before the dawn of time
When i was just a gleam to my grandpa before
Well he found a little lassie
To whom, he took a fancy
And they had my mum and then they had some more
And he told me with a grin
As he took a sip of gin
Someday son you'll breathe free celtic air
And it may not be today
But look now that's o.k.
Cause someday son the soldiers will
All march away
Try to breakout now
It's time to go
Try to breakout or you'll never know
So have a drink or 3
And sing with me
Scotland, ireland and wales must be free
Try to breakout
Or you'll never know
Try to breakout
Or you'll never really know
Time to breakout
Or you'll never really know
Time to breakout
Or you'll never really
Never really know
Now every boy around the world
Dreams he could save the day
Be the hero, get the girland walk away
Now grandpa isn't here today
And the soldiers are still there
But i love an irish girl who took my name
And we'll raise our kids to know
The tales of scotland's woes
And hope that someday they will
Breathe free air
And it may not be today
But look now that's o.k.
Cause someday son the soldiers will
All march away
