Verse
Twenty seagulls sitting on a rooftop in the rain
Do they see me staring at them through my windowpane
Whether headed up to Canada or down to Mexico
It's way beyond me how without a map they know which to go

Chorus
Sometimes I'd like to sprout some wings
Let go this jumbled brain
Sometimes I wish I was a seagull on a
Rooftop in the rain

Verse
A seagull's life seems simple yeah not much to worry 'bout
Don't have to make those big decisions pay the rent or live with doubt
As far back as the dinosaurs their instinct was to fly
Oh there never was a seagull had to stop and wonder why

Chorus
Sometimes I'd like to sprout some wings
Let go this jumbled brain
Sometimes I wish I was a seagull on a
Rooftop in the rain

Bridge
Oh I pray with every sunrise I'll awaken to the sound
Of the beating of those forty wings so high above the ground

Verse
And I'll look below to see that I've escaped the earth's terrain
And from now on there'll be
Twenty-one seagulls on a rooftop in the rain
