Mama told me not to waste my life,
She said "spread your wings my little butterfly,
Don't let what they say keep you up at night
And if they give you hell, then they can walk on by!"

My feet, feet can't touch the ground
And I can't hear a sound
But you just keep on running up your mouth, yeah
Walk, walk on over there
'Cause I'm too fly too care, oh yeah

Your words don't mean a thing
I'm not listening
Keep talking, all I know is...

Mama told me not to waste my life,
She said "spread your wings my little butterfly,
Don't let what they say keep you up at night
And they can't detain you, 'cause wings are made to fly!"
No we don't let nobody bring us down
No matter what you say, it won't hurt me
No matter if I fall from the sky
These wings are made to fly

Hey! Hey!
I'm firing up on that runway,
I know I'm gonna get there someday
But we don't need no ready, steady, go, no
Talk, talk turns into air
And I don't even care, oh yeah

Your words don't mean a thing
I'm not listening
Keep talking, all I know is...

Mama told me not to waste my life,
She said "spread your wings my little butterfly,
Don't let what they say keep you up at night
And they can't detain you, 'cause wings are made to fly!"
No we don't let nobody bring us down
No matter what you say, it won't hurt me
Don't matter if I fall from the sky
These wings are made to fly

I don't hear no one saying hey! hey! hey! hey!
I don't hear no one saying hey! hey! hey! hey!
You better keep on walking, I don't wanna hear your talking boy
You better keep on walking, I don't wanna hear your talking boy

Your words don't mean a thing
I'm not listening
They're just like water off my wings!

Mama told me not to waste my life,
She said "spread your wings my little butterfly,
Don't let what they say keep you up at night
And they can't detain you, 'cause wings are made to fly!"
No we don't let nobody bring us down
No matter what you say, it won't hurt me
Don't matter if I fall from the sky
These wings are made to fly

And we don't let nobody bring us down
No matter what you say, it won't hurt me
Don't matter if I fall from the sky
These wings are made to fly
