The Lyrics

Are we there yet? This is to the video version, BTW.
And you may find yourself sitting next to lots of brats
And you may find yourself with the worst earphones in the world
And you may find yourself with zero beer high up in the stratosphere
And you may find yourself with no knowledge about if you're really that high
And you may ask yourself, "Well...when can I leave here?"

It's such a waste of time to ask the stewardess now
A total waste of time, there's worse problems to sort out
But inside you still wish that the trip's not so long
Long friggin' flight time, that's what this all feels like now

And you may ask yourself, "Why is this food shit?"
And you may ask yourself, "How often is that old joke seen?"
And you may tell yourself, "It's been too long since I've seen ground"
And you may tell yourself, "It's been too long since we went high"

Metal crate in the sky, it's a miracle but now
Been too long in the sky, feels that way, hard to work out
How much time has passed since this stupid plane took off
Long friggin' flight time, man, that's not what I want now

I can't look at my clock because my phone is off
No, I don't own a watch cause my phone is my clock
People who own a watch either fill them with rocks
Or they want fitter bods, therefore I have no watch

I'm not afraid of heights, I'm not acrophobic now
It's just the length of time that sends my spirits right down
I wanna see Paris before home jets take off
Long friggin' flight time, simply pisses me off now

You may ask yourself, "When will we be on the ground?"
You may ask yourself, "Was that damn flight plan bogus?"
And you may ask yourself, "Has the time gone all wrong?"
And you may say to yourself, "My God! These time zones suck!"

Watch all the planes go by out my tiny window now
All of the planes go by, wonder if they do touch down
This is taking the piss, total and utter bollocks
I swear we must have flown double the Earth's distance round
Think we've been in the sky for more than one day by now
I don't think that's alright, not a shock that you've worked out
That my ass hasn't been up in a plane that much
Long friggin' flight time, that's still my main issue now

Think I can feel my butt fusing together cause
I've never sat this much since my last Skyrim run
This in-flight movie sucks, Batman is not this dumb
Put it together, bud, that Superman's not a thug (taking too long, but why?)
I'd turn the music on, but that's also a bomb (taking too long, but why?)
Not that I would say bomb, got a trip to go on
Long friggin' flight time's no excuse to get nicked now
So I'll just sit and cry, water flowing from me now

I have a hard time listening to this song and not picture Kermit the Frog in a big white suit.

This is a tough one I would never have thought to parody. Never flown on an airliner, thanks for sharing your experience.
