"Gather Up Your Wings & Fly" as written by and Lawrence Hayward....
I was heading north on a plane that was heading south
Whiskey in my pocket, cigarette was in my mouth
A vision on my knee but it wasn't really much

& gather up your wings & fly now
& you can take them to the sky
Hey hey you

What's the betting that you'll be letting his hands dip into your loins?
I'll be getting a new sun setting on the downtown Vegas morn

& downtown Vegas, that's the place of your dreams
& downtown London, oh, that's, that's not your scene

Step inside & take the weight off your tiny feet
You curled up in the corner, oh, you're looking so discret
& when you turned your face caught the light & oh you looked so sweet

& don't I always get my own way?
& have you anything to say?
Hey hey hey

& what's the betting that you'll be letting his hands dip into your loins?
I'll be getting a new sun setting on the downtown Vegas morn

& what's the betting that you'll plead insanity?
It won't be long now while we're shaking your apple tree
Let's shake it now

After seven days of fasting you said you'd seen the Lord
You travelled back four centuries in search of a silver sword
Your self-induced hallucinations - they just made me bored

& gather up your wings and fly now
& you can take them to the sky
Hey hey you

What's the betting that you'll be letting his hands dip into your loins?
I'll be getting a new sun setting on the downtown Vegas morn

Downtown vegas that's the place of your dreams
Downtown London, oh that's, that's not your scene
Shake your apple tree now
