Herbert sacker, nina simone

Why you wanna fly blackbird you ain't ever gonna fly
No place big enough for holding all the tears you're gonna cry
Cos your mama's name was lonely and your daddy's name was pain
And they call you little sorrow cos you'll never love again

So why you wanna fly blackbird you ain't ever gonna fly
You ani't got no one to hold you you ain't got no one to care
If you'd only understand dear nobody wants you anywhere
So why you wanna fly blackbird you ain't ever gonna fly

Songwriters
SIMONE, NINA / SACKER, HERBERT E.
