If I could fly thru the sky, I’d reach up and touch the stars
I know someday my dreams will take me far
I’ll sing a brand new song, sing it proud and strong
I long for the day I’ll spread my wings
Just hear how a caged bird sings
A caged bird sings for freedom
Freedom won’t you hear my song?
I’ve been lock’d up far too long
Spread my wings
I long to fly
I watch the clouds changin’ shape, I see colored autumn leaves
I’ll get my chance to soar above the trees
I’ll make a joyful noise; hope is in my voice
My day is approaching, you will see
I know soon I will be free
Take me, take me to the sky
Oo, lift me, lift me higher. Higher!
Sing! Come ‘n’ listen to my voice
Hear how a caged bird sings
