Looking up
Two birds are making for the morning sky
But I’ve been looking up to one of them for life

So before you fly away
I just have to say
I hope I never see the end of that bright smile

You two will find a way
Because it’s clear today
That there’s no better pair of flying mates alive

As you both take off together
Spread your wings for warmer weather
Though we’ll miss our friend around here
Well I’m sure we’ll see you soon, dear

Looking up
Two birds are making for the morning sky
But don’t forget to come back home to perch sometime

The road 300 miles
But less as the birdy flies
And I can’t wait till you emerge from those white clouds

Until then I wish you well
Your little bro can tell
The two of you’ll be smiling wing in wing for life

As you fly so high together
Still swear I see your bright bright feather
The future is as blue and open
As you two lovebirds are hoping

By the way, I know that I don’t get a vote but
Please don’t move to North Dakota
