Charted: 13
  • One, two, three, like a bird, I sing
    'Cause you've given me the most beautiful set of wings
    And I'm so glad you're here today
    'Cause tomorrow I might have to go and fly away
    (Hey!)

    When I'm down to my last dollar
    I walk right through my shoes
    Just a small reminder
    Of the hell that I've gone through
    But look at me still smiling
    'Cause I'm wondering what I'll do
    Since I ain't got nothing
    I got nothing to lose
    Everybody say: ha ha ha, ha ha ha
    My friends are always giving me
    Watches, hats, and wine
    That's how I know this is serious
    That's how I know it's time
    I don't have to worry about things that I don't have
    'Cause if I ain't got nothing
    I got nothing to hold me back

    [Chorus]
    And one, two, three, like a bird, I sing
    'Cause you've given me the most beautiful set of wings
    And I'm so glad you're here today
    'Cause tomorrow I might have to go and fly away
    Fly away, fly away
    Fly away, fly away

    There's nothing that's worth keeping me
    From places I should go
    From Happy-ville to Loving-land
    I'm gonna tour from coast to coast
    I'm leaving everything behind
    There's not much that I need
    'Cause If I ain't got nothing
    I'm foot-loose and fancy-free

    And one, two, three, like a bird, I sing
    'Cause you've given me the most beautiful set of wings
    And I'm so glad you're here today
    'Cause tomorrow I might have to go and fly away
    Fly away, fly away
    Fly away, fly away

    Look at me so free
    Nothing's holding me down (down)
    Look at me so free
    Can't keep my feet on the ground

    One, two, three, like a bird, I sing
    'Cause you've given me the most beautiful set of wings
    And I'm so glad you're here today
    'Cause tomorrow I might have to go and

    One, two, three, like a bird, I sing
    'Cause you've given me the most beautiful set of wings
    And I'm so glad you're here today
    'Cause tomorrow I might have to go and fly away
    Fly away, fly away
    Fly away, fly away

    Fly away!
