06 We’re Gonna Fly

GEORGE:
IS THIS WHAT THE BABY BIRD SEES

WHEN IT PEEKS OVER THE NEST?
WILL IT RETREAT TO WARMTH
PRESSED AGAINST ITS MOTHER’S BREAST?

BERT:
OR MIGHT IT DARE TO TAKE THE PLUNGE

AND HOPE TO TOUCH THE SKY?
TO SEE A STRANGE AND WONDROUS WORLD,
IF IT ONLY DARES TO TRY?

BERT & GEORGE:
AND NOW, MY FRIEND, IT’S TIME FOR US

TO JUMP AND HOPE THAT

WE’RE GONNA FLY HIGHER! WE’LL GIVE IT OUR BEST TRY!
AND WE’RE GONNA FLY HIGHER! WE’RE GONNA FLY!
WE’RE GONNA TAKE THAT FATEFUL LEAP
AND TRY TO GRASP THE SKY.
WE’RE GONNA FLY HIGHER.
WE’RE GONNA FLY!

GEORGE:
THEY NEVER THOUGHT WE HAD A CHANCE.

THEY NEVER GAVE US ONE.
THEY SAID THAT WE WOULD COME IN LAST
BEFORE OUR RACE WAS EVEN RUN.

BERT:
WE TOOK OUR SPOT WITHIN THE RACE

AND WITH ONE CHANCE TO SHINE,
WE MADE THEM WATCH FROM FAR BEHIND
AS WE CROSSED THE FINISH LINE.

GEORGE:
AND ONCE AGAIN

BERT:
MY FRIEND

BERT & GEORGE:
WE HAVE TO TRY.

AND THIS TIME, MY FRIEND,

WE’RE GONNA FLY HIGHER! WE’LL GIVE IT OUR BEST TRY,
AND WE’RE GONNA FLY HIGHER! WE’RE GONNA FLY!
WE’RE GONNA TAKE THAT FATEFUL LEAP
AND TRY TO GRASP THE SKY.
WE’RE GONNA FLY HIGHER.
WE’RE GONNA FLY!

BERT & GEORGE:
AND IF WE TAKE THAT FATEFUL STEP
AND FIND OUR WINGS TOO SMALL,
WE’LL STILL TAKE IN A STUNNING VIEW,
EVEN AS WE FALL.

BERT & GEORGE:
BUT SIDE

GEORGE:
BY SIDE

BERT:
BY SIDE

BERT & GEORGE:
I’LL TAKE THOSE ODDS

TO TAKE OUR PLACE AMONGST THE GODS!

WE’RE GONNA FLY HIGHER! WE’RE GONNA TOUCH THE SKY!
WE’RE GONNA FLY HIGHER! WE’RE GONNA FLY!
WE’RE GONNA TAKE THAT FATEFUL LEAP.
WE’RE GONNA REACH THE SKY.
WE’RE GONNA FLY HIGHER.
