The Lyrics

All my bags are frisked, I show my passport
I'm standing here at metal detector
They confiscated my toothbrush and shampoo
And the queue goes on with a crawling rate
the tax-free's waiting for some shopping late
Already I'm so tired and in bad mood -

So pissed off and bored as well
This feels just like a living hell
Seems me like I'll never get to go -
I'm boarding on a jet plane
I don't know if I should take a train
Oh, dear, I hate airports.

There's a many thing I should have bought
But prices are higher than I thought
I tell you now, this tax-free is a scam
The coffee's stale, the cider's flat
the waitress is a doggone twat
newspapers' language I don't understand

The time drags and the plane is late
The clock ticks and it soon is eight
Seems me like I'll never get to go -
I'm boarding on a jet plane
Waiting four hours - it's a pain
Oh, dear, I hate airports.

Now the time has come the plane to board
One more time l show boarding card
They want it and my passport at the gate
The crowd rush in the boarding tube
it's cold outside and wind blows through
The hostesses tell we still have to wait -

The flight's late, and tower's waiting
Hate this pro-crastinating
Seems me like I'll never get to go -
I'm boarding on a jet plane
Next time I'll fly myself - oi vey!
Oh, dear, I hate airports.

I share your sentiments, Susanna... that`s why next time I vowed to Seqway to France!

Actually, I took a trip to Universal Studios in Orlando at the end of March, and I also took a trip to France & Italy in April, and I hardly had any problems. Maybe I was lucky. Or maybe it was because I'd read Psalm 23 prior to departure. TJC: If you're going to Segway to France, you'll need a scuba suit for going underwater, unless you don't live in America.
