Michael Thought He Could Fly

lyrics

Many, many years ago
A mighty captain roamed the skies
He was just a little boy
That took many by surprise
He lived for his imagination
And told everybody to kiss his behind

Michael thought he could fly
He knew he'd touch the sky
Closed his eyes, spread his wings
And he sailed away
Every cloud knew his name

Now he's much older baby
He's got a family of his own
His little boy is just like he used to be
Some say he's like a clone
Superman cape, a bowl of fruit loops
And a Saturday morning cartoon
Sometimes you can't forget how it all started

Michael thought he could fly
He knew he'd touch the sky
Closed his eyes, spread his wings
And he sailed away
Every cloud knew his name
