Commentary

“It’s Time” is a political song created by the Australian pro-Republican movement around the time of the referendum in 1999. The model proposed for an Australian republic was rejected by the people (hence the pro-Republican movement was unsuccessful). Australia remained a constitutional Monarchy.

“It’s Time” is performed by a collection of Australian artists, one of which is Mark Seymour. Tim Freedman (The Whitlams) and many other fairly well known Australian artists also feature in the song.

 

Lyrics

It’s time for freedom
It’s time for moving
It’s time to be begin
Yes it’s time

It’s time Australia
It’s time for moving
It’s time for proving
Yes it’s time

It’s time for all folk
It’s time moving
It’s time to give
Yes it’s time

It’s time for children
It’s time to show them
It’s time to look ahead
Yes it’s time

Time for freedom
Time for moving
Time to be clear
Yes it’s time

It’s time Australia
It’s time for moving
It’s time for proving
Yes it’s time

Time for better
Come together
It’s time to move
Yes it’s time

Time to stand up
Time to shout it
It’s time time time
Yes it’s time

Time to move on
Time to stand up
Time to say “yes”
Yes it’s time

Time for freedom
It’s time for moving
It’s time to be clear
Yes it’s time

It’s time Australia
Time for moving
Time for proving
Yes it’s time

Time for freedom
Time for moving
Time to begin
Yes it’s time

It’s time Australia
Time for moving
It’s time for proving
Yes it’s time

Time for freedom
Time for moving
It’s time to be clear
Yes it’s time

It’s time Australia
It’s time for moving
It’s time for proving
Yes it’s time
