Album: The Beatles (The White Album)

BUY THIS CD AT AMAZON.COM


Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free.

Blackbird fly Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.

Blackbird fly Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.

Information

Paul wrote this song about a blackbird that he saw one morning or there is a theory that it has a deeper meaning. The bird could be seen as a symbol for oppressed racial minorities that were about to flex their muscles, "learn to fly" with their "broken wings".
