My, Oh My

My, oh my 
I wish I could fly. 
High in the sky 
  The eagles and I. 

My, oh my
Flying so high
If I could fly
I would not cry.

 My, oh my
The sun is so hot
If I were flying
I could not get a shot.

My, oh my
I wish this would end
Because I have cancer
I don't have a friend.

My, oh my
When the cancer is gone
I will fly and fly
Straight up to the sun.
