Fly Like An Eagle

A harmony-filled chorus version of the 70’s rock hit with great and timeless lyrics by Steve Miller.

Composer & Copyright

Original song by Steve Miller Band. Arranged for Wholehearted Chorus by Lisa G. Littlebird.



Tick tock doo doo….

Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’
Into the future (x2)

(Oooh- ) I wanna fly like an eagle, to the sea
Fly like an eagle, let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle, ’till I’m free
Fly right through the revolution

Verse 2:
Feed the babies who don’t have enough to eat
Shoe the children with no shoes on their feet
House the people livin’ in the street
Oh, oh, there’s a solution


Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’
Into the future (x2)

Doo– doo– doo doot (x4)

Verse 2

Teaching Notes

This is a chorus arrangement, not one for instant teaching. In Wholehearted we learn everything without sheet music so it can be done! This four-part arrangement was specifically created to flow right out of another song in our concert and song library: Most Beautiful Sky. When performing this we have an electric bass doubling the “tick tock” line throughout. In our choir, High is equivalent to soprano, Middle High is alto, Middle Low is Tenor and Low is Bass. The vocal ranges are less extensive than a typical classical choir to remain accessible to beginning singers. In this arrangement, Middle Low’s have the melody.

This recording is the key of A.


Level of teaching speed/ difficulty (1 = very easy, 10 = very challenging)
