Intro:
Em
Mama told me not to waste my life
            C
She said spread your wings my little butterfly
          D
Don't let what they say keep you up at night
                           C
And if they give you shhh
                   D
Then they can walk on by


     Em
My feet, feet can't touch the ground
                        C
And I can't hear a sound
                     D
But you just keep on running up your mouth yeah
Em
Walk, walk on over there
                     C            D
'Cause I'm too fly to care, oh yeah


Em                        D
Your words don't mean a thing
         C
I'm not listening
               D
Keep talking, all I know is


Chorus:
Em
Mama told me not to waste my life
        C
She said spread your wings my little butterfly
         D
Don't let what they say keep you up at night
   C
And they can't detain you
                      E
Coz wings are made to fly
                                 C
And we don't let nobody bring us down
                                       D
No matter what you say it won't hurt me
                                C
Don't matter if I fall from the sky
                         Em
These wings are made to fly


Em
I'm firing up on that runway
                             C
I know we're gonna get there someday
                      D
But we don't need no ready steady go, no
Em
Talk, talk turns into air
               C             D
And I don't even care, oh yeah


         Em                 D
Your words don't mean a thing
          C
I'm not listening
            D
Keep talking, all I know is


Chorus:
Em
Mama told me not to waste my life
        C
She said spread your wings my little butterfly
         D
Don't let what they say keep you up at night

                      E

                                 C
And we don't let nobody bring us down
                                       D
No matter what you say it won't hurt me
                                C
Don't matter if I fall from the sky
                         Em
These wings are made to fly


Em
I don't need no one saying hey, hey, hey, hey
C
I don't hear no one saying hey, hey, hey, hey
Em
You'd better keep on walking
C
I don't wanna hear your talking - boy'd
Em
You better keep on walking
C
I don't wanna hear your talking - boy'd


Em                     D
Your words don't mean a thing
             C
I'm not listening
             D
They're just like water off my wings
