Right now I feel like a bird 
caged without a key
Ev'ryone comes to stare at me
with so much joy and reverie
They don't know how I feel inside

They don't know what they're doing to me
keeping me from flying
That's why I say that I know why
the caged bird sings
Only joy comes from song

She's so rare and beautiful to others
Why not just set her free
so she can fly, fly, fly
spreading her wings and her song?
Let her fly, fly, fly
the whole world to see

She's like a caged bird
Fly, fly, ooh, just let her fly
just let her fly, just let her fly
spread her wings
spread beauty, mm
