A sticky summers' day in Shepherdstown
An eagle in a thermal is a' circlin' round
Like a tire on a bike rolling down Columbus Street
Katie got a little look of hope in her eye
Arms unfold as she looked to the sky
and said, "I'm going to learn to fly around with you"
She jumped up high and she fell to the ground
Skinned her little knee and made a horrible sound
She got right up and she tried again
Smiling all the way with her unstoppable grin Take time, do what you're going to do Just smile, you're gonna make it through Your wings are going to spread and lift you off the ground Take time, do what you're going to do Just smile, you're gonna make it through Your wings are going to sprout and you will learn to fly
All the other children used to laugh at her
They say your head is in the clouds and when you come back to earth
That the men in the white coats, they will all be waiting
But Katie knew that there was something they didn't see
She climbed up to the top of the sycamore tree
and said, "look out world, I'm going to fly away"
She stood so tall and with all her might
She took a flying leap of an astonishing height
A wind blew through and it carried her high
and Katie knew that she was just beginning to fly [chorus, solo, chorus]
