The Lyrics

Flight is such a ubiquitous superpower...not all it's cracked up to be, TBH.
Yeah, uh-uh
La-da-da-da-da
Sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry

Hey, buddy, I know just what you wish
"If only I was floatin' in the air, that would be sick now"
Don't mean to bust such a dreamer
And it isn't like some awful misdemeanour
But you really need this one lesson cause you have this obsession
With takin' off from the ground into the blue
You long to fly, you've repeated "wanna fly" 'bout eighty-four
Times a day ever since that fateful day inside the store
I admit that I'm a bit culpable for sure
Lacked the heart to shut down a kid aged four
"Superman can fly!" Sure can, you little dork
And about four-hundred-ish heroes more
A trite stereotype for a super to soar
But that's not what I need to say to you

No, no, no, no, buddy, no, no, no, no, don't fly
Cause no, no, no, no, yeah you know, know, know, know it isn't right
Might think it's cool to burst through the clouds
But the dark, hidden truth's 'bout to be spilled out
No, no, no, no, buddy, no, no, no, no, don't fly
You should know, should know, should know, should know
Should know it isn't right (sucks, s-sucks, sucks, s-sucks, sucks, flyin')

When you're careenin' through the skies, it's a pain
So hard to avoid all the birds right in your face
Scrapin' the bug wings off your pecs, you'd better brake
Cause when you fly, expect to find lots of planes
Just one distractin' thought, you're smushed on the glass pane
Wouldn't look great if the world is not saved
If you copped a plane wing to the dome, a blush on your face
You may think that you're so bright to avoid capes
I know you liked Incredibles, that's great
Not the only reason why these things, I say (oh-hoo-oh-oh)
When you fly in the sky, in the sky, in the sky
There's lots of obstructions contained
Wanna fly in the sky in the big ol' sky? Why?
Tons of obstructions contained

No, no, no, no, buddy, no, no, no, no, don't fly (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, no, don't you fly)
Cause no, no, no, no, yeah you know, know, know, know it isn't right (it's not right, it's not right)
What you gon' do when you touch right down (what you gonna do, buddy?)
And the people see you covered in duck down?
No, no, no, no, buddy, no, no, no, no, don't fly
Cause you should know, should know, should know, should know, should know it isn't right

Ooh-hoo-ooh-ooh, hoo, hoo-ooh
Ooh-hoo-ooh-ooh, hoo, hoo-ooh
Ooh-hoo-ooh-ooh, hoo, hoo-ooh
Ooh-hoo-ooh-ooh, hoo, hoo-ooh
Ooh-hoo-ooh, hoo, hoo-ooh (ba-da, ba-da, ba, ba, ba, ba)
Ooh-hoo-ooh, hoo, hoo-ooh (ba-da-da, ba-da-da, ba-da-da, ba-da-da)
Ooh-hoo-ooh-ooh, hoo, hoo-ooh (ba-da, ba-da, ba, ba, ba, ba)
Ooh-hoo-ooh-ooh, hoo, hoo-ooh (ba-da-da, ba-da-da (mmm), ba-da-da, ba-da-da)

So, you're flyin' cross the world
You know where you're goin'? Didn't think so, you twerp
Used to only two dimensions, but now there's a third
Motion sickness you'll soon feel, it's awkward to hurl
When you're flyin', man, it hurts, don't do it (oh-hoo-oh-oh)
When you fly in the sky, in the sky, up in the sky
Balance gets out of whack
You know I'm right, when you fly in the sky, milit'ry overreacts
You immune to shells?

No, no, no, no, buddy, no, no, no, no, don't fly (don't you fly)
Cause no, no, no, no, yeah you know, know, know, know it isn't right (you know, you know it's nonsense)
When you go zoom, it's a rush for now
But most of your foe's goons are stuck on the ground
No, no, no, no, buddy, no, no, no, no, don't fly
No, no, no, no, buddy, no, no, no, no
Sucks, s-sucks, sucks, s-sucks, sucks, flyin')

This is why you don't see "flight" as the sole power of a super. Unless they're background shock-death fodder, it's usually paired with super strength or eye-beams or the like.
