When the Swallows Fly

 I wander lonely as a cloud
 I keep my head above the crowd
 Ain't nobody else as big as me
 But I must remember friends
 What has to start just has to end
 Everybody's got a destiny
 And I know when the swallows flies
 Yes I know, and the earth just dies
 Then I'll be told what I am
 The swallow and me I
 'll look after number one
 I'll forget the beggar's son
 Everybody's got to stay alive
 I'll keep a-walking amongst the clouds
 I'll keep my head above the crowd
 I'll watch them live,
 I'll watch them die
 And I know when the swallows flies
 Yes I know, and the earth just dies
 Then I'll be told what I am
 The swallow and me
 And I know when the swallows flies
 Yes I know, and the earth just dies
 Yes I know when the swallow flies
 Yes I know, and the earth just dies
