    Short story from Sci-Fi textbook circa 1981 ?

    I took an elective English class called Science Fiction back in high school. There was a short story about an alien world that used humans as horses. The smaller but dominant alien oppressors would ride in saddles upon their human's shoulders. Humans could speak, but only when allowed. In the middle of a village was a rocket ship, but nobody knew what it was. Legend about the ship was that humans came from it centuries ago. And there was a song passed down from generations that humans would sing to their children. It was simple instructions on how to operate the rocket ship for humans to escape back home (Earth). The main human character's name may be Alan. He devises a plan for he and his mate to board the ship and escape. Again... this was from 1981. Anybody heard of this story? I think the title was something like "The Song, The Serpent and The Star", but I cannot find it anywhere.
