Lyrics:
Well I know a chicken fell in love with a chicken hawk
Yes I know a chicken fell in love with a chicken hawk
She fell head over heels for that hawks sweet talk
She said please mister hawky, will ya take me up in the sky
Please mister hawky, take me up in the sky
Im just a itty bitty chicken and I dont know how to fly

He said, Come on baby!
Up, up and away, we gonna fly all day
Up, up, up and away, we gonna fly all day
Up, up, up and away

She met a bald headed eagle way up there in the blue
Bald headed eagle way out there in the blue
And the eagle told the hawk, Im gonna steal that chicken from you!
But the hawk got off like a supersonic jet
The hawk got off like a supersonic jet
He said cool cool mama, cause the eagle aint got us yet

Well now, up, up and away, we gonna fly all day
Up, up and away, we gonna fly all day
Up, up, up and away

Well now, up, up and away, we gonna fly all day
I said up, up and away, we gonna fly all day
Up, up, up and away

One more time!
Up, up, up and away, we gonna fly all day
You know I gotcha where I wantcha
And Im never gonna letcha get away, fly away
Gotcha where I wantcha and Im never gonna letcha
Gotcha where I wantcha and Im never gonna letcha
Fly away
