IF I ONLY HAD WINGS (w. Sid Colin, m. Ronnie Aldrich) As recorded by: Geraldo & His Savoy Hotel Orchestra V. Sid Colin Recorded 16th November 1940 Ever since the day you're sworn in Much too early in the morning Someone wakes you, shivering, yawning Sleepy little head Back upon the pillow falling Can you hear a voice a-calling It's the sergeant gently bawling Stand beside your bed Rise and shine, ain't it fine You've gotta get up, you've gotta get out Before you know what it's all about Hurry and dress, the sergeant's raving Over boots and buttons slaving No hot water left for shaving Get out on parade In the kitchen, washing dishes Peeling spuds and cleaning fishes I just keep on making wishes Wish I had a trade All day long I sing this plaintive song I look through the window and look at the sky And I wish, and I wish, oh I wish I could fly If I only had wings Oh what a difference it would make to things All day long I'd be in the sky, up on high Talking to the birdies that pass me by How the fellows would stare To see me roaring past them through the air Never tiring of the thrill it brings If I only had wings I'd be so fearless and bold That when the stories of my deeds were told You'd see my picture in the papers And they would proudly say The RAF and me just had another good day If I only had wings One little pair of those elusive things You would never hear me complain again If I only had wings. (Musical Break) But still when all's said and done There are more important things than just having fun And if we all can pull together And never, never stop The RAF and me are gonna finish on top If I only had wings One little pair of those elusive things You would never hear me complain again If I only had wings.
