Flying is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss

- Douglas Adams

Mama, today is the day,
I'm gonna spread my tiny wings,
and fly away,

Mama, how I love you so,
I see the tears in your eyes,
but I'm ready to go,

Mama, the world's what I want to see,
but after a while I'll come back home,
there's no place I'd rather be,

Mama, goodbye, I'll never forget you,
you taught me to be me,
you taught me to do what I want to do,

Mama, the pain right now may be a lot,
but happiness must be there,
the sadness might not be what you thought,

Mama, I will miss you as much as you'll miss me,
but I'll come back successful,
please, just wait and see,

Mama, today is the day,
I'm gonna spread my tiny wings,
and fly away...
