Silver wings  Shining in the sunlight  Roaring engines
 Headed somewhere in flight 
They're taking you away
And leaving me lonely  Silver wings
 Slowly fading out of sight

 Headed somewhere in flight 
They're taking you away
And leaving me lonely  Silver wings
 Slowly fading out of sight

 Shining in the sunlight  Roaring engines
 Headed somewhere in flight 
They're taking you away
And leaving me lonely  Silver wings
 Slowly fading out of sight  Slowly fading out of sight
