[All]
Mamma told me not to waste my life
She said spread your wings my little butterfly
Don't let what they say keep you up at night
And if they give you shh...
Then they can walk on by

[Jesy]
My feet, feet can't touch the ground
And I can't hear a sound
But you just keep on running up your mouth, yeah

[Jade]
Walk, walk on over there
Cause I'm too fly to care, oh yeah

[All]
Your words don't mean a thing
I'm not listening
Keep talking, all I know is

[Chorus:]
Mamma told me not to waste my life
She said spread your wings my little butterfly
Don't let what they say keep you up at
night
And they can't detain you
Cause wings are made to fly
And we don't let nobody bring us down
No matter what you say it won't hurt me
Don't matter if I fall from the sky
These wings are made to fly

'Huh huh'...

[Perrie]
I'm firing up on that runway
I know we're gonna get there someday
But we don't need no ready steady go, no

[Leigh-Anne]
Talk, talk turns into air
And I don't even care, oh yeah

[All]
Your words don't mean a thing
I'm not listening
Keep talking, all I know is

Mamma told me not to waste my life
She said spread your wings my little butterfly
Don't let what they say keep you up at night
And they can't detain you
Cause wings are made to fly
And we don't let nobody bring us down
No matter what you say it won't hurt me
Don't matter if I fall from the sky
These wings are made to fly

I don't need no one saying hey, hey, hey, hey
I don't hear no one saying hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
You better keep on walking
I don't wanna hear your talking, Boy'd
You better keep on walking
I don't wanna hear your talking, Boy'd

[All]
Your words don't mean a thing
I'm not listening

[Jade + Perrie]
They're just like water off my wings

Mamma told me not to waste my life
She said spread your wings my little butterfly
Don't let what they say keep you up at night
And they can't detain you
Cause wings are made to fly

And we don't let nobody bring us down
No matter what you say it won't hurt me
Don't matter if I fall from the sky
These wings are made to fly

And we don't let nobody bring us down
No matter what you say it won't hurt
me
Don't matter if I fall from the sky
These wings are made to fly...

    It means let no one stop yue. It also means, yue can try to hurt me all yue want. But you can't kick me if yue can't reach me. Not for even for one guy. Just spread yur wings and move on. Don't let noe one bring yue down. There are plenty of fish in the sea. So they will be a perfect guy watin out there for yue. Btw iilalallovethissong. Wow. Its so amazing I have been practising this song and I might post it on YouTube. :)
