Aaahh – ya - yay

Aaahh – ya – ya – ya – ya – ya – yay

There was a bird, iridescent queen
She flittered in and out and all around my life
She lifted me into her sky

Taught me to reach for dreams I’d once deferred

Aaahh – ya - yay

Oh my swift-winged bird

She stashed a song, inside my heart
In case I drifted like the clouds, beneath the horizon mark

It chased away the other birds,
Who came to perch and sing of silly things; better left unheard

Aaahh – ya - yay

Oh my swift-winged bird

Briefly she landed, on my outstretched hand
A perfect love washed over me

Shimmering and silent in the evening breeze
I realized my only need

And my dreams made a man who sings
A serenade to the beat of her wings

Aaahh – ya - yay

Oh my swift-winged bird
