Just a small request from this human to a god
Let me ask of you a favor, it might seem a little odd
I’m at a loss
I need to cross the ocean wide
And I need to do it soon, like tomorrow afternoon
If that’s okay

Loan me some wings for a day
Loan me some wings for a day

They don’t need to be angel’s wings, I’m sure they’re in demand
Something better than a chicken or a penguin would be grand
I just can’t wait
She’s set the date to marry him and it really should be me
Which explains the urgency
I can’t delay

Loan me some wings for a day
Loan me some wings for a day

I promise I won’t use them for a daredevil career
I won’t buzz the White House or race seagulls at the pier
I won’t get caught
Doing naughty things with pigeons or cropdusting in Des Moines
And I won’t run off to join Cirque de Soleil

Loan me some wings for a day
Loan me some wings for a day

Loan me some wings for a day
Loan me some wings for a day

I wouldn’t ask this of anybody else
I’m sure you sympathize
Cause you’re the one who made those lips
Put the sparkle in her eyes

It’s not your fault I said the things I said
I don’t blame you for making me a fool
But with these wings, I’ll fly straight to her side
This time I’ll follow through
Oh, come on, God, I’d do the same for you

Just a small request from this human to a God
Before she throws that last bouquet

Loan me some wings for a day
Loan me some wings for a day
Loan me some wings for a day
