The Cape Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well, he's eight years old he's got a flour sack cape
Tied all around his neck
He's climbing up on top of the garage
He's figurin what the heck

He screws his courage up so darn tight
That the whole thing come unwound
He got a runnin start and bless his heart
He headed for the ground

'Cause hes one of those who knows his life
Is just a leap of faith
Gotta' spread your arms and hold your breath
And always trust your cape

Well, he's all grown up, he's got a flour sack cape
Tied all around his dream
Hes full of piss and vinegar
Ah, hes bustin at the seams

He licks his finger and he checks the wind
Its gonna be do or die
He wasnt scared of nothin, boys
He's a pretty sure he can fly

But hes one of those who knows his life
Is just a leap of faith
Gotta' 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 till hes dead

All these years the people said
The fool was actin like a kid
And since he didn't know he couldn't fly
Well, of course he did

'Cause hes one of those that knows his life
Is just a leap of faith
Gotta' spread your arms and hold your breath
And always trust your cape

Gotta' spread your arms and hold your breath
And always trust your cape
