The Lyrics

Oh, the horrors of airport cancellations...
They delayed my flight today to Boulder
Heaven knows how long I’ll have to wait
As soon as there’s no blizzard...curse this weather!
There will be a stampede at the gate

I can’t sleep in the terminal--it’s tiny!
(Especially when I’m near this fat guy’s heinie!)

Now I must subsist on chips and soda
That I bought at the concession stands
And though it beats the crap they serve on airplanes
Gobs of grease are oozing off my hands

Trapped in an airport with a fatty diet
I got a headache--no one can stay quiet
‘Cause they delayed our flight!

Maybe if I drove and braved the nasty storm
I’d be less stressed
But the choice between that and this noisy hell
Makes me hard-pressed
It’s making me harried...(The long lines are scary)
Air quality’s crappy...(It smells of old snap peas)
I wanna catch my flight!!

And now I hear the pilots all are striking
This situation’s nowhere near my liking...
And my anger’s spiking...
Where the heck’s my flight?!

No sky, baby...
Won’t fly, baby...
Brain’s fried, baby..
Shut-eye? No way!
(in this case "especially" is slurred to three syllables; "espec'lly.")

And when you return... Oy, what a flight, late from Denver back to NYC! (Shameless parody plug.) Here's 555 frequent-flyer miles for whenever the plane does take off.

Good thing I chose to fly in the spring! Oh yeah, about the airplane food: I had some on my flight across the Atlantic, and it was better than what people think it is. Then again, I suppose it all depends on the airline.

Fun stuff! At least your flight to 'Paris' wasn't delayed a whole 45 days...

OK, Cat, let me explain. I sent you three 5's, but one of them got misrouted at Denver International and is now on a flight to Jakarta.

(Ages) Here's to waiting 555 minutes on the tarmac. For no aparent reason. Just because. Oh, and now you have to go back to the terminal for refueling. Hope this won't make you late.
