Looking out your kitchen window at us Climbing up the trees If we had wings we couldn't be more free You see the ground but you're not near it Don't you ever think to fear it 'cause the devil 'aint got nothing on the daybreak He can't stop that old sun rising Not to save his sorry life And if I could I would write him a song so lovely It would teach that old devil how to fly
