PAROLES

[Verse 1]
You’re such a heavy bird
You’d never get far on your own
You’ll never have a use for your feathers
While you’re hopping down the road
Yeah, you were born to walk the earth
Yeah, with your back against the cold
And no, you never had a purpose
‘Til I wore you on my back like a coat
You’re in your evening gloves
You’re off the farm taking big city drugs
No matter how far you get
Now let it sink in

[Chorus]
That I gave you roots
And baby, I gave you wings
Yeah, I gave you roots
And I gave you wings

[Verse 2]
And I showed you how to swing
Yeah, I showеd you how to strut
That’s my mojo you’re using
That’s my wine getting you drunk
And it was I that brokе you in
I got you cleaned, clipped and cut
And you’re a mule among horses
I took you when God stood you up
Now tell me, who could do more?
Set myself on fire keeping you warm
And now I’m off the hook
And he’s on your chin

[Chorus]
But I gave you roots
Yeah baby, I gave you wings
Know I gave you roots
And I gave you wings

[Bridge]
Now you’ve got your looks and your pretty things
And a new set of chances that I wouldn’t give
Now, if you’ve forgotten, well I’ll tell you again
That I gave you roots
Baby, I gave you wings
You’re such a heavy bird
You’d never get far on your own

[Chorus]
Yeah, I gave you roots
And baby, I gave you wings
Yeah, I gave you roots
Baby, I gave you wings

[Outro]
Oh now, you’re such a heavy bird
You’d never get far on your own
I gave you roots, gave you roots
I gave you wings
Gave you roots, gave you wings
Oh, such a heavy bird
