Verse 1:
This morning as I watched a bird
Just spread its wings and fly
It was then a thought came over me
And I wondered why can't I ?
Oh why, oh why can't I ?

Verse 2:
If I could only fly, you see
A lot of problems would be gone
When you think of just how much
I'd save on shoes alone
If I could only fly

Verse 3:
I would never tear my clothes
Climbing in and out of trees
If I could only fly, I'd never crawl
Or wear holes in my knees
If I could only fly

Verse 4:
How I'd love to spread my wings
And streak across the sky
I'd be off to see the world
If I could only fly
But I'd always come right back
