I'm a father to my children
I'm a husband to my wife
Seems I been something to somebody
Every day of my life

This is part of the master plan
It don't do much to preserve a man
And I'd like to see what it feels like to be
Nothin' to nobody, nothin' to nobody

I'm a keeper to my brother
I'm my mama's fair haired boy
But you know people, I would rather be
Nobody's pride and joy

No man is an island so they say
But if I could go there for just one day
Yeah, I'd like to see what it feels like to be
Nothin' to nobody, nothin' to nobody

I wanna be free as a bird
Flyin' south for the winter
And by the time they miss me
I'll be long gone, yeah, long gone

For some people life is just a garden
You know it seems like they can just
Pick and choose for themselves
For me life is just the burdens
That I have to carry for someone else

I'm top dog at my job
I do more than others can
The boss likes to tell me
I'm his right hand man, yeah

The preacher on Sunday
He tells me I'm just another child of God
Lord, if You're there and if You care
Hey, can You see fit, yeah, to answer my prayer?

'Cause I wanna see what it feels like to be
Nothin' to nobody, nothin' to nobody
Free as a bird, ooh, nothin' to nobody
