Wings
Written by: Will Kimbrough and Jimmy Buffett
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Buffet Hotel (2009)

Lyrics:
I’ve been up around the stratosphere
At thirty-one thousand feet
I’m gonna fly on out of here
On wings that you can’t see
If you’re gonna fly high without fear
You’re gonna have to learn to love the atmosphere
And you gotta learn to use those wings
You can’t see.

I’ve been treading on the mountains of the moon
on a weekend wind
I’ve been lookin out for life on Mars
Ground control to Major Jim.
All these things could be yours too
If you just take another point of view
Everybody’s got a pair of wings
They can’t see.

I’ve got wings …that you can’t see
I have wheels on my feet
Way up high
I feel free
On these wings you can’t see.

I don’t need no runway
I’ve got fuel here in my bong
I can buzz the treetop flyer
Level all day long
Now I’m looking down on tiny cars
Tiny swimmers in the water and tiny beach bars
And all because of these wings
You can’t see

I’ve got wings … that you can’t see
I have wheels on my feet
Way up high
I feel free
On these wings you can’t see.

And maybe if you open up your mind
You might learn some things.
God only knows what you might find
Floatin’ on those wings.
You can try to fly away from all your problems
I’m here to say that ain’t the way to solve them
I can only help you with your wings you can’t see

We have wings … that we can’t see
We have wheels on our feet
Way up high
We’ll be free
On these wings we can’t see.

You have wings
Look and see
Silver wings
Like Merle and me
Come on up
To cloud 9-B
Come on take a little taste of freedom
High up in the cloud-lined kingdom
Take a little trip on wings
That you can’t see
