When I was young I flew



When I was young I flew
as Superman did on tee-vee,
or Spider-Man with sticky glue.
When I was young I flew.

Then into man I grow
and leave behind my make-believe
superhero alter ego.
Then into man I grow.

As I grow old I'll dream
that I can fly as in my youth
with open eyes again agleam.
As I grow old I'll dream.
