lyrics

I sat down the other day and wrote a letter to my friend
I put a stamp on the envelope and I mailed it to him
It said, How are you, I am fine, don’t betray me again
And never start a fight you know you can’t win

Yellow Helicopter on the ground
Can you take me up there can you spin me around?
I’m a little tired and I worked all day
I’ll be very good, I’ll stay out of your way

I feel safe in your skies
I feel secure in my disguise
Unpack your bags before you go
Leave your troubles far below

I put a dime in the payphone and I’m placing my call
I’m going through the phone book ‘til I contact you all
Calling out bullshit don’t make you a cynic (hey!)
If you want to win a fight you got to get up in it (hey!)
If you want to survive you’ve got to learn to forgive

Yellow Helicopter on the ground
Can you take me up there can you spin me around and around and around?
I’m a little tired and I worked all day
I’ll be very good, I’ll stay out of your way

I feel safe in your skies
I feel secure in my disguise
Unpack your bags before you go
Leave your troubles far below

Yellow Helicopter on the ground
Can you take me up there can you spin me around and around and around?
