Those Broken Wings Will Learn to Fly

He sat down on a barroom stool
And paid the tender for his drink
His mind was spinning 'round and 'round
He couldn't clear his head to speak
But a girl named Mary happened bye
And she turned his face to the evening news
The blue, blue focus of a double scotch
As she danced her dreams among the ruins
A couple stories about arrest
Heavy rain and thunder claps
"Don't try to take my life" he said
"Or my money too"
 Amen to that... Cool
 
"That kind of rap..."


What do rebels do for real as the full moon shines...?
They lie and steal
Orange juice and vodka, man
What would they know about L. U.V. ...?
Even just the tablerockin'
Something's underneath that rock
Old Ma Leary is getting weary
She'll sock it to you with a friendly cop

So if you have to go somewhere
Don't "squeeze 'em in" past 55
"You need a man" said Mary"...
"...and those broken wings will learn to fly..."

"It's another hot day and leavin' Mississippi..."
