Her mum and dad grew up in this town
Married after school and settled down
Like most round here, bought a little ground
And planted roots.

Her brother Mark works att daddy's store
Sister Connie's wornin' on kid number four
But Rose hut eighteen and hit "that" door
And she flew
She said I know they're thinkin'
I'm just the wild thing
Just cause you've got roots
Doesn't mean you can't have wings

Chorus:
So she flies
Soaring where she's never been
Reaching out for a life
Grabbin' all she can take in
She flies like an eagle on the wind
Just cause you've got roots
Doesn't mean you can't have wings

She moved to Dallas then Frisco Bay
Spent a year in Denver, (and) wound up in L. A.
Where she met a guy who took her breath away
And said I do!

They had a daughter late next fall
Took a trip back home to show her to mum
Her mama said (baby) I've seen it all
She act's just like you

Rose - when she grows up
Remember one thing
Just cause she's got roots
Doesn't mean she can't have wings

Chorus

Her mum and dad move to town
In north L. A they settled down
Like most round here, bought a little ground
And planted roots.
