Lyrics

She’s black and red and built just like a spy plane

Extracting information from my mind

The photographs she takes save to a mainframe

For your eyes only lonely cold war time (of mine)

Now after all the city falls just like the night or an angel does

Leave me here alone to collect my things

She sees music in the terror she brings

And like a Technicolor dream

The light in your eyes blinded me

From your perch you softly smiled

My Blackbird softly smiled

She’s built for speed and made for keeping secrets

Stark and dark against enemy skies

From miles above the earth no one can detect her

My Blackbird blows a kiss that ends mankind (goodbye)

And all this time there is no crime of treason that she hasn’t seen

Leave me here alone to collect my things

She sees music in the terror she brings

And like a Technicolor dream

The light in your eyes blinded me

From your perch you softly smiled

My Blackbird softly smiled

SR 71 Blackbird from the hell above

She’s the only one

Only spy I ever loved

She’s the only spy I ever loved

Now after all the city falls just like the night or an angel does

Leave me here alone to collect my things

She sees music in the terror she brings

And like a Technicolor dream

The light in your eyes blinded me

From your perch you softly smiled

My Blackbird softly smiled

SR 71 Blackbird from the hell above

She’s the only one

Only spy I ever loved
