And so we've come a long way
Too, too long baby, I've got to say
And even though we had some fun
I'm tellin' you honey, I've got to run

Well it seems you had your time
Takin' everything from me you could find
But now the table's turned
And this old heart you'll never burn
But this bird's got to fly, bird's got to fly
I'm tellin' you honey, this bird's got to fly, so long
Got to be on my way

You always seemed so clever
With your little books that you read forever
Always a-keepin' me down, but now I'm gonna come back around
A-tears a-burnin' me, a-pain a-burnin' me, can't you see?

And I'm tired of wasting precious time
To you my life ain't worth a single dime
But this bird's got to fly, bird's got to fly
I'm tellin' you honey, this bird's got to fly, so long
Got to be on my way

And so we've come a long way
Too, too long baby, I've got to say
I'm tired of wastin' precious time
'Cause to you my life ain't worth a single dime
So this bird's got to fly, bird's got to fly
I'm tellin' you honey, this bird's got to fly, so long
Got to be on my way
So so long
Got to be on my way
Ya, so long baby
