Eight years old with a flour sack cape tied all around his neck
He climbed up on the garage, he's figurin what the heck
Screwed his courage up so tight, that the whole thing come unwound
He got a runnin start and bless his heart, he headed for the ground

Well hes one of those who knows that life is just a leap of faith
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape

Now he's all grown up with a flour sack cape tied all around his dreams
And hes full of piss and vinegar, and hes bustin at the seams
So he licked his finger and checked the wind, its gonna be do or die
He wasnt scared of nothin, boys, he was pretty sure he could fly

Well hes one of those who knows that life is just a leap of faith
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape

Now he's old and gray with a flour sack cape tied all around his head
And hes still jumpin off the garage and will be 'til hes dead
All these years the people said, "He's actin like a kid"
He did not know he could not fly, so he did

Well hes one of those who knows that life is just a leap of faith
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape
Yeah, hes one of those who knows that life is just a leap of faith
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape
