  • Loose balloon, how high can you fly?
    You're a loose balloon, before you pop and you die
    Loose balloon, you made that little kid cry
    When you took off for the sun

    Loose balloon, how high can you fly?
    You're a loose balloon, before you pop and you die
    Loose balloon, you made that little kid cry
    When you took off for the sun

    And just this morning you were flat and deflated
    None knew if you were loved or hated
    Just another shriveled up loser in a bag
    So to the kid that tried to get ya
    Held like kitten, he was happy to pet ya
    Till' he caught a sucker and opened up his hand
    Free so free now the skies the limit
    20 miles up and its just the beginning
    Spaceman, planets and lunar surface here i come (here i come)

    Loose balloon, how high can you fly?
    You're a loose balloon, before you pop and you die
    Loose balloon, you made that little kid cry
    When you took off for the sun
    When you took off for the sun
    People squint to look up
    People squint to look up
    Just to see you fly away
    Just to see you fly away
    Just to see you fly away
    Just to see you fly away
    Now, you're absolutely free, so don't stop
    You're absolutely free, so don't stop
    You're absolutely free, so don't stop until you pop Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
