In this world there's a whole lot of trouble baby
In this world there's a whole lot of pain
In this world there's a whole lot of trouble but
A whole lot of ground to gain

Why take when you could be givin'?
Why watch as the world goes by?
It's a hard enough life to be livin'
Why walk when you can fly?

In this world there's a whole lot of sorrow
In this world there's a whole lot of shame
In this world there's a whole lot of sorrow
And a whole lot of ground to gain

When you spend your whole life wishin'
Wantin' and wonderin' why
It's a long enough life to be livin'
Why walk when you can fly?

And in this world there's a whole lot of golden
In this world there's a whole lot of plain
In this world you've a soul for a compass
And a heart for a pair of wings

There's a star on the far horizon
Risin' bright in an azure sky
For the rest of the time that you're given
Why walk when you can fly high?
