The Lyrics

Retrieving your luggage at an airport can sometimes be quite tedious. Here is my recent experience at Dalaman, Turkey.
Fly-ing to Dalaman
Landing at the evening sun
Show passport to guardian
then waiting for my baggage to come, yeah

I'm standing at the baggage reclaim
waiting for my suitcase arrive
I'm just standing at the baggage reclaim
Wastin' time

There's the big black conveyor belt
rolling 'round so empty and bare
Minutes pass by, I must have felt
And looks like my suitcase is nowhere

I'm standing at the baggage reclaim
waiting for my suitcase arrive
I'm just standing at the baggage reclaim
Wastin' time

Now the bags pop out of a chute so large
yet I cannot find one my own
This feels like some absurd farce
the bags they just keep circling around

It must be two hundred or so
bags on the belt going around
I'm waiting for the one of my own
and it feels minutes grow into hours, yeah..

I'm standing at the baggage reclaim
waiting for my suitcase arrive
I'm just standing at the baggage reclaim
Wastin' time...

A problem I have never had to deal with. In the United States, the other end of the trip has become so obnoxious, that I doubt I will ever travel anywhere by air. Hope you had an enjoyable trip after you retrieved your bags.
