The Cape (Clark Guy)

Eight years old with a flour sack cape tied all around his neck He climbed up on the garage, he's figurin' what the heck, well He screwed his courage up so tight that the whole thing come unwound He got a runnin' start and bless his heart, he's headed for the ground Well, he's one of those who knows that life is just a leap of faith Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape Now, he's all grown up with a flour sack cape tied all around his dream And he's full of spit and vinegar and he's bustin' at the seam Well, he licked his finger and he checked the wind, it's gonna be do or die And he wasn't scared of nothin', boys, he was pretty sure he could fly Well, he's one of those who knows that life is just a leap of faith Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape Now, he's old and gray with a flour sack cape tied all around his head And he's still jumpin' off the garage and will be till he's dead All these years the people said, he was actin' like a kid He did not know he could not fly and so he did Well, he's one of those who knows that life is just a leap of faith Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape Yes, he's one of those who knows that life is just a leap of faith Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape
