Wings



To soar like eagles, wings spread far apart
Ascending near the heavens, a rush for the heart
from the Wright brothers Kitty Hawk, to the Enoyla Gay
From Amelia's lost soul, to the jets of today
Wings in flight, soaring high
Wings in flight, fly boys, fly

Crash landings, and long, perilous flights
Fair skies to stormy weather, and no runway lights
G-forces at work, and flat tail spins
From a two man cockpit, to all the cotter pins
Wings in flight, soaring high
Wings in flight, fly boys, fly

From Lindenbergh's solo, to the Blue Angel's feats
from B-52's and migs, to ejection seats
There's propellers, aerobatics, and flotation gear
To the pilots, navigators, and the bombardiers
Wings in flight, soaring high
Wings in flight, fly boys, fly
