Down here in the ground 
 It ain't no place for living 
 No, no, no 
 Down here on the ground 
 Watching the sparrows fly high 
 I watch the birds 
 As they make their wings 
 Flying solid free 
 How I wish it were me 
 But I'm down here on the ground 
 And I'm wanting something better 
 I'm down here on the ground 
 Wanting something more 
 One morning soon 
 I will find 
 Some wings on my mind 
 To take me high 
 So if you hear a sound 
 From down here on the ground 
 My friends 
 It's only me 
 Trying to fly 
 Trying to fly 
 I would love to fly 
 Because I'm tired of being 
 Down here on the ground 
 I'm tired of being 
 Down here on the ground 
 One morning soon 
 I will find 
 Some wings on my mind 
 To take me high 
 So if you hear a sound 
 From down here on the ground 
 My friends 
 It's only me 
 Trying to fly 
 Trying to fly 
 I would love to fly 
 Because I'm tired of being 
 Down here on the ground 
 I'm tired of being 
 Down here on the ground
