She was counting out her tips
And staring at the clock
When that 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 trans am is the sweetest thing"
He said"honey let me take you for a ride"
She said "only if you let me drive"

[Chorus]
Firebird fly burn up the sky
Wanna hear that engine cryin
Stomp on the gas
Gotta go fast
Screamin into the night yeah
Leavin 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 waitin 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

[Chorus]

Fire bird fly burn up the sky
Wanna hear that engine crying,
Stomp on the gas gotta go fast

Screaming into the night yeah
Screaming into the night yeah

Leaving it all behind
Leaving it all behind

Firebird fly firebird fly
Firebird fly firebird fly
