Get Off The Ground

Do you really really wanna buy
Some two ton candlelight
Cause if the rig is oversized
We’ll never make it to the sky

If this bird could get off the ground
If this bird could get off the ground
Cause if this bird could get off the ground

I once knew a young man
Who wanted to get a suntan
He became a spaceman
It wasn’t such a good plan

If this bird could get off the ground
If this bird could get off the ground
If this bird could get off the ground

Seconds on the clock
T minus 5
Seconds on the clock and a pretty blue sky
The bird is awake
She rumbles and shakes
Opens up its wings as you give it some more

In a couple hundred years man
They’ll remember nothing
Just pieces of the launch pad
But they’ll know that we were dreaming

If this bird could get off the ground
If this bird could get off the ground
If this bird could get off the ground

If this bird… could get off the ground
