Fly Right

Lyrics: Kemp
Music: Kemp

Well I started on the bottle
In a place called Colorado
Since then I tried most everything but fat
My folks had told me better
But at the time it didn't matter
But now I'm just a lonely fool looking back

The teachers tried to teach me
But the books and the words couldn't reach me
I didn't know what was right and what was wrong
So I took an L.A. vacation
The devil met me at the station
Said, I've got some goodies in my bag, why not come along

Chorus
You got to
Keep straight
Fly right
Get it straight
And get high right
Get it straight or don't get high at all
Keep straight
Fly right
Get it straight
And get high right
Get it straight or don't get high at all
Fly right free fall

I saw my mistake
And I knew I had to remake
All the damn things going on inside my head
So I got into giving
And it changed my way of living
And I feel I'll find the balance before I'm dead

[chorus]

Fly fight, fly right, free fall
Fly fight, fly right, free fall
Fly fight, fly right, free fall
Fly fight, fly right, free fall
[etc]
