She was counting out her tips
And staring at the clock
When had jet black pontiac
Slid into the parking lot
He walked in with a crazy grin
Said I'm needing something sweet
She said "man that transam is the sweetest thing"
He said "honey let me take you for a ride"
She said "only if you let me drive"
Firebird fly burn up the sky
Want to hear that engine crying
Stomp on the gas
Got to go fast
Screaming into the night yeah
Leaving it all behind
Firebird fly firebird fly
Stopped outside of phoenix
For some smokes and gasoline
He said "keep that motor running
And wait for me"
She turned head and smiled and said
"I've been waiting all my life"
The she popped the clutch
Then a cloud of dust
She left him high and dry
For the first time, she could finally spread her wings
Down the highway, man you could hear her sing
Fire bird fly burn up the sky want to hear that engine crying, stomp on the gas got to go fast
Screaming into the night yeah [repeat]
Leaving it all behind [repeat]
Firebird fly firebird fly [repeat]
