Although some people say he's just a crazy guy To me he means a million other things For he's the one who taught this happy heart of mine to fly He wears a pair of silver wings
And though it's pretty tough, the job he does above I wouldn't have him change it for a king An ordinary fellow in a uniform I love He wears a pair of silver wings
Why, I'm so full of pride when we go walking Every time he's home on leave He with those wings on his tunic And me with my heart on my sleeve
But when I'm left alone and we are far apart I sometimes wonder what tomorrow brings For I adore that crazy guy who taught my happy heart To wear a pair of silver wings
For I adore that crazy guy who taught my happy heart To wear a pair of silver wings
