The Lyrics

Oh my, Oh My
So High, So High
Can't Fly, Can't fly
The skies, the skies
Oh my, Oh My
So High, So High
Can't Fly, Can't fly
The skies, the skies

I don't know what's going on
They'll check my shoes
They'll watch me walk
They check my bags, and that's enough
but TSA was not my fright
Them I don't fear
I can still fly
When I got on, I'll now recite

One Ticket
Then the baggage fee
One under the plane and the one on me

And just then
Charged for a baby
That a woman was holding

Charging for the drink that we drink during this flight
What a surprise they charge to turn on the dome light

Hey Hey
It costs too much to fly

Is this a sin
To charge me for the weather?
Can't control clouds
Is there an eject lever?

No way, No way
I can't afford to fly
This is not right

Pay Pay
Stay Stay
Delay Delay
Both ways, both ways
Afraid, Afraid
Been played, been played
Air ways, air ways
aren't sane, aren't sane

They charge me to open my mouth
To use the chair
To see the sky
To use the toilet and to wipe
To most industries, its a disgrace
To take a dime
for silly crap
To take our wealth
It's like a slap

Can't give in
What is next really
Will they tell us to pay for the air we breathe

Charge pending
For a booking fee
When will this madness end

They've begun to charge to redeem my reward flights
Charge for my seat that I choose for a good sight

I Can't afford to fly

Had to change my flight
So my wallets been severed
Going back home
costs me more than ever

Oy-vei oy-vei
I can't afford to fly
price is too high

I can't afford to fly
price is too high


I can't afford to fly
This is not right

Jet Blue Jet Blue
Delta Delta
Scrooge You, Scrooge You
U.S. Airlines
Spirit Spirit
You too, You too

Driving in my car, though the gas is so high
Still costs less than most, so I guess I will not fly

Hey Hey
Suppose I'll have to drive

Will the trend end
To come up with these clever
Ways to go gouge
and charge us more than ever

Hey Hey
Well guess what I won't fly
On your airlines

Greyhound may be slow, but they'd save me my earnings
Even Amtrak will be less of a burning

Hey Hey
It costs too much to fly

A message I'll send
To the high fees of you guys
Is to save cash
By not paying your high price

Hey now, hey now
Southwest is still priced light
The rest aren't right
