The Lyrics

This song is dedicated to the iPhone I love.
Your chargers are packed
Uber’s at the door
Need to stop at the Apple store
I hate to shut you down and press restart
Flight tracker is showing
There’s no delay
Ordering Starbucks
To grab on the way
Already I dread any time apart

Want email and my news feed
Download a good book to read
Hold your charge and never let it go
Cause I’m leavin’ on an airplane
Don’t know when I can text again
Must switch to airplane mode

There’s so many times you fell aground
So many times you almost drowned
I tell you now they don’t mean a thing
Every place I go I’ll post with you
Every thought I have I’ll tweet with you
When I come back, you’ll get a case with bling

So tell me what’s the crisis?
Keeping on cell devices
Air traffic control please let us go
Cause I’m leavin’ on an airplane
Can’t wait to Instagram again
Lonely in airplane mode

The flight attendant comes around
To make sure my phone is down
I try to sleep and I close my eyes
Dream I work for FCC
I approve new technology
So we can use cell phones in the skies

Now waiting gate approval
Past time for our arrival
Hold you close and long to see you glow
Cause I’m circlin’ on an airplane
Just lost our place in line again
I’m stuck in airplane mode

Yes, I’m circlin’ on an airplane
Hope we don’t lose our place again
Still stuck in airplane mode
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates the use of mobile phones on aircrafts.

just Plane good! bonus points for using the "John Denver" version of the OS which is in my opinion infinitely superior to the "Peter Paul & Mary" one 5's
