Fly…And Be
By Ménage a Tune
Lyrics arranged by JoAnn Abbott
Music composed by Ted Kiper

Good Mooorrrrning!
It’s time to seize the day!
You're only given a little spark of madness.
You mustn't lose it.

Fly and be free!
The world’s open for play,
and everyone and everybody
is mockable in a wonderful way."

You know what music is?
Do you know?
God's little reminder that there's
something else besides us in this universe,
a harmonic connection between
all living beings, everywhere,
everywhere, even the stars.

"You have this idea…
that you'd better keep working…
otherwise people…people
will forget.
All it takes is a beautiful fake smile
to hide an injured soul
and they’ll never no…
tice how broken
How broken
you are.
I used to think that the worst thing in life
was to end up alone.
It's not.
The worst thing in life is to end up with people
With people
With people who make you feel alone.

It’s not your fault
It’s not your fault
I believe in destiny.
There must be/ a reason that I am as I am.

There must be.”

I think the saddest people always try their hardest
to make people happy.
Because they know they know what it’s like to feel
absolutely worthless,
and they don’t want anybody
anybody else… to feel like that

There is still a lot to learn
and there is always great stuff out there.
No matter what people tell you,
words and ideas can change the world!
“What some folks call impossible, is just stuff they haven’t seen before
“You’re a good man. I know that. Even if you’ve forgotten it.”
So make a wish and think of me.
So make a wish and think of me.
Make your life spectacular. I know I did.
All Lyrics were taken from films, tv shows and interviews with Robin Williams. Fly and be free, Robin.
