Iowa's Image in Contemporary Lyrics

LOL!
Human to a God
(from their album Trees)
Gaelic Storm

Just a small request from this human to a god;
Let me ask you a favor that might seem a little odd;
I’m at a loss -
I need to cross the ocean wide, and I need to do it soon,
Like tomorrow afternoon,
if that’s okay,
Loan me some wings for a day.
Loan me some wings for a day.

They don’t need to be Angel’s wings; I’m sure they’re in demand;
Something better than a chicken or a penguin would be grand;
I just can’t wait;
She’s set the date to marry him, and it really should be me,
Which explains the urgency;
I can’t delay;
Loan me some wings for a day.
Loan me some wings for a day.

I promise I won’t use them for a daredevil career;
I won’t buzz the White House, or race seagulls at the pier;
I won’t get caught
Doing naughty things with pigeons,
Or crop dusting in Des Moines;
I won’t run off to join,
Cirque de Soleil;
Loan me some wings for a day
Loan me some wings for a day.

BRIDGE

Loan me some wings for a day;
Loan me some wings for a day.

I wouldn’t ask this of anybody else; I’m sure you sympathize,
Cause you’re the one who made those lips, and put the sparkle in her eyes,

It’s not your fault I said the things I said;
I don’t blame you for making me a fool,
But with these wings, I’ll fly straight to her side;
This time I’ll follow through;
Ah, c'mon’ God… I’d do the same for you…

Just a small request from a human to a God,
Before she throws that last bouquet…
Loan me some wings for a day.
Loan me some wings for a day.
