Fly Away, Little Bird

Fly away, little bird, fly away.
Fly away, little bird, fly away.
Over the ocean far across the sea,
(Your will as strong as your curiosity)
Fly away little bird, fly away.


Your eyes shine bright as a wildfire,
You've got your own brand of ferocity,
And those mercurial wings,
Supply your velocity.

Fly away, little bird, fly away.
Fly away, little bird, fly away.
Over the ocean far across the sea,
(Your will as strong as your curiosity)
Fly away little bird, fly away.


Used to follow me 'round the neighbourhood,
Just like a little duckling babe.
Taught you to climb a tree,
You learned fast, you were so brave.

Fly away, little bird, fly away.
Fly away, little bird, fly away.
Over the ocean far across the sea,
(Your will as strong as your curiosity)
Fly away little bird, fly away.


Oh swan,
Rise up, take wing...
Open up your silver throat and sing.....


Fly away, little bird, fly away.
Fly away, little bird, fly away.
Over the ocean far across the sea,
(Your will as strong as your curiosity,
Fly away little bird, fly away.


You were always the first
To stand up, give it a try.
With bumps and bruises and scratches to show,
But always a smile.

Fly away, little bird, fly away.
Fly away, little bird, fly away.
Over the ocean far across the sea,
(Your will as strong as your curiosity)
Fly away little bird, fly away.
