Tongue-tied and twisted just an earthbound misfit, I

Above the planet on a wing and a prayer,
My grubby halo, a vapour trail in the empty air

With no map and no compass for thousands of miles
And just glide through the air
On a wing and a prayer
Till the day, he finally arrives

I've been traveling on a wing and a prayer
By the skin of my teeth, by the breadth of a hair

I'm walkin' on air
I never thought I could feel so free
Flyin' away on a wing and a prayer
Who could it be?

And a hold on to you
Coming in on a wing and a prayer

Something deep inside you, a wing and a prayer will guide you
Something deep inside you

As the birds in the air
On a wing and a prayer
I will always be there for you

We're raising hell and you know that it' right
The music screams on a wing and a prayer
We turn the volume up, come watch if you dare

And we'll enjoy the ride.

For a pretty girl it's a heavy load
And even so, who'll pay your fare
She said 'I'll make it on a wing and a prayer'
