Fly Away

Fly Away

Fly Away

by Chuck RitenouR June 1979

verse 1:

The kids are off to school and the breakfast dishes done

sad-eyed lady lounging by the pool soakin' in the sun.

she wonders how it happened and she always wonders why

she hasn't got the courage to spread her wings and fly.

verse 2:

Bridge Club luncheons, soap opera afternoons

listening while the radio plays her favorite tunes

sometimes she sings along and sometimes she just cries

knowing sooner or later, she's gonna spread her wings and fly


Fly away, someday she'll fly away

she's gonna fly right out the door of her guilded cage

behind the mask of serenity that hides her rage, she sets the stage

for the day she swears she'll fly away.

the end.
