Lyrics

"Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth, And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth, of sun-split clouds and done a hundred things.
Have I achieved high flight (2X)

You have not dreamed, of wheeled sword and swung, high in the sunlit silence hovering there. I've chased the shouting wind, along, and flung my eager craft through footless halls of air.
Have I achieved high flight (2X)

Up, up the long delirious burning blue I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace, where never lark, or even eagle, flew; (2X)
and, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod, the high un-trespassed sanctity of space, I put out my hand, I put out my hand,
and touched the face of God."
