Barry T Songs involving Airplanes (133* d) RE: Songs involving Airplanes 06 Feb 08

I remember this whimsical tune from a Laurie Bower Singers LP back in the early 70's. I also remember The Irish Rovers singing it on their TV show. I think the title is correct, but I was unable to track down the name of the composer.


I wish I was a plane so I
could fly above the rain
And leave my worries on the ground.
The worries in my mind
are the imaginary kind
And if I was a plane
they couldn't bring me down.

Maybe if I was a kite
they'd never make things right
I'd get so tied down with a string.
Besides, they'd need a breeze
so they could fly along with ease
And if I was a plane
I wouldn't need a thing.

   Above the clouds I would fly
   in a sky that is blue
   All the world will be down
   instead of me.
   Though the mountains would try
   they would not get as high
   I know they'd try to touch me
   but I'd be too free.

Oh the world will never see
a plane as high as me
My silver wings will touch the sun.
I won't rest till I
find a spot up in the sky
A spot abover the clouds
just big enough for me.


Repeat first verse
