Birds beware, expect me up there
Me and air are feeling light today
Jets should hide, I'll fly alongside
Me and pride are bolted tight today

I've been set off by a pretty little girl

I'm like a rocket from a bottle shot free
I've been just explosive since you lit me
I've been up with the larks
I've been shooting off sparks

And I'm feeling in love

I'm a rocket from a bottle shot free
