Ollie Ollie Out's in Free

< instrumental opening  > 
 
One day during school vacation,
all the kids in the neighborhood,
were playing a lot of kiddy games
like all good children should . . .

Of all our favourite pastimes,
hide-an-seek made the greatest hit,
but there's one game I shouldn't have played,
'cause I think that I'm still "it" . . .

Ollie Ollie out's in free,
Ollie Ollie out's in free,
where's my sweetie hidin' now?
She is gone, that's why I shout . . .

Ollie Ollie out's in free,
I wonder where my love can be?
We were playing at the start,
now she's hiding with my heart . . .

Ollie Ollie out's in free,
I looked out but she couldn't be found,
she never did that before
I'm not sure but I think I'd blame
the sister that lived next door . . .

Ollie Ollie out's in free,
she left me with a memory,
and in each dream at night I scream
Ollie Ollie out's in free!
