If I was a seagull
High and aloof
I'd sail to your house
And perch on your roof

But I ain't a seagull
You know my name
And the winds blow fortune
The winds blow pain

And so it goes, nobody knows
How to get to the sky
How to get to the sky

If I was a puppy dog
In the early dawn
I'd make it to your house
And sleep on your lawn

But I ain't a puppy dog
You know my name
And the winds blowin' fortune
The winds blow pain

And so it goes, nobody knows
How to get to the sky
How to get to the sky
How to get to the sky
How to get to the sky
