The Lyrics

It's Like, I always knew I could fly. Check out these wings, Yeah
I don't need to take the train, because I can fly
I don't need to get on a plane, because I can fly
I can see you don't believe me, I know why
Because I can fly [x3]

I was gonna go right to the top, because I can fly
I was gonna keep going up and not stop, because I can fly
Now I'm on the nineteenth floor and I know why
Because I can fly [x3]

I know why I wanted to jump, because I can fly
I wasn't gonna hit the ground with a bump, because I can fly
I'm gonna float right home and I know why
Because I can fly [x3]

The ground's coming up real fast, maybe I can't fly
I'm heading for disast-er I can't fly
There'll be a red splash on the sidewalk and I know why
Because I can't fly [x3]

Met Saint Peter at the Pearly Gates, because I can't fly
I said Man, I'm in dire straits, because I can't fly
Now he's letting me in and I know why
Because I can't fly [x3]

Up in Heaven I met JC, he said You wanna fly?
We need another angel or three, you wanna try?
I signed up right away, you know why?
'cause I wanna fly [x3]

So I said to JC, I said I wanna fly
Does it take surgery, I wanna fly
He said, No it takes a miracle and that's why
You gonna fly [x3]

Now I got wings on my back, I can fly
I flew down to Earth and back because I can fly
I'm the happiest angel in heaven and I know why
Because I can fly [x3

When I saw the title of this song, I knew it was going to be either very corny, or smart and funny. It's hilarious, 555.
