Come on up, hey little darling

That was the way when I first met you baby
You weren't right for me
I didn't really care
Act quite naturally

She said
Went on a boat going down by the river
Plenty more supplies
Seen a lot of planes going up in the air

Do you ever get the feeling
That you want to fly like a bird in the sky

Hey Lucille, you'll be the talk of the town
Lucille hey, you'll be the talk of the town
She met a young man called Johnnie
He played a little mean guitar

No matter how hard I try
I want to fly like a bird in the sky
I want to fly like a bird in the sky

I wish I could take time
I wish oh I wish so hard
I wish I could take time
I wish oh I wish so hard

Living the night, doing it wrong

It's a little lonely without you
The feeling was strong
The world was holding on
I want to be on my own

I wish I could take time
I wish oh I wish so hard
I wish I could take time
I wish oh I wish so hard

Won't you stay with me

Take from me what I take form you
You can take from me what I find in you

Come on, tell me, tell me, tell me

I wish I could take time
I wish oh I wish so hard
Hey, I wish I could take time
I wish oh I wish so hard

Say I can't get by without your love
Say I can't get by without your love

Say I can't get by without your love
Say I can't get by without your love

I wish I could take time
I wish oh I wish so hard
I wish I could take time
I wish oh I wish so hard

I wish I could take time
I wish oh I wish so hard
