Lyrics

Flown Away

My little birds have flown away,
Flown away
I call them every Saturday
Look how time goes by
Call them in the morning just to hear them say
Flown away
?Hey, call us later Dad, ok??
Look how time goes by

Chorus:
Flown away, flown away
My little birds have flown away

My little birds have fledged the nest
Flown away
One flew south and one flew west
Look how time goes by
Landed in the far away
Flown away
Canada and Santa Fe
Look how time goes by

Chorus

My little birds have taken wing
Flown away
But what they take is what they bring
Look how time goes by
They were young but now they?re not
Flown away
They order wine in a restaurant
Look how time goes by

Chorus

My little birds have flown the coup
Flown away
I?m going to lure them home with minestrone soup
Look how time goes by
All I need to make them smile
Flown away
Is soup and frequent flyer miles
Look how time goes by

Chorus
