The Lyrics

I should have known
When I boarded the airliner
Sir Stinky Bowels
Would be sitting on my right

Some woman who's anxious
Having hyperventilation
On my left she's sitting
Man, I'm gonna hate this flight

I try to get a seat reassignment
But I'm wasting my time
Some guy shoves bags in the bin
Crushing my overnight case
I can hear the stitching rupture
And the flight entertainment
Is a 9-11 film

We're on the tarmac
So, can we please depart?

Why do I endure this headache
Wish I took the train
I wish I had a case of beer
When I'm flying in a plane
And it's bloody inhumane
Flying in a plane

Then some old boorish guy
In the seat in front of my seat
Starts his seat reclining
'Til his headrest hits my chest
Pilot, let's get going
Or I'll start a revolution
Let me say this delicate --

And right behind me
Is some Simpson kid named Bart

And the intercom plays Whitesnake
Driving me insane
It's such a dropkick to the rear
When you're flying on a plane

They don't care if you complain
It can be a royal pain
When you're flying on a plane

Please bring me whiskey
C'mon, where's the beverage cart?

Up in first class there's a clambake
Bottles of champagne
But we get “pay and pray” back here
As we're flying in a plane

And we're treated with disdain
And my luggage went to Spain
So I really can't explain
Why I'm flying in a plane
Flying in a plane

Can't understand why this hasn't got more votes, Rex. Loved the Whitesnake meta-reference, bags to Spain, and "pay and pray". 555+

I agree with Kristof. You could sell this to Southwest for their advertising campaign :) Funny stuff!

Another brilliant parody here Rex. I loved the Whitesnake rip, the bags to Spain, the Simpsons reference, the part about the guy reclineing his chair back so far it's on your chest.... I hate flying, and have parodied it many times, but I think this one beats all of the parodies I've done about flying. For a guy who apparently dislikes Whitesnake you've done a bang up job with them.

I agree w/everyone on the funny lines. (but "In the seat in front of my seat" made me cringe.) 555 and a seat upgrade.

Sounds like Bullet in the Head

(Artistry) You might think I'm jumping to conclusions,'re not that fond of planes, are you? Big laughs here, Rex. 555 for you (let's hope they don't airsick from Aussie to America!)!

(Artistry) Very well done, one of your best in awhile. I particularly like the "9/11 film reference" and of course taking a poke at Whitesnake in the song. . .genious

This was probably the most developed parody that I've read so far in the competition, and there were some good lines that were already covered in previous comments by other people. The only real weakness is that the rhymes with the original song would be wasted in the "real world" because I don't think this song is well known at all (I hadn't heard it before).

(Artistry) Ditto with just about everyone else's funny lines. I fly a few times every year, usually from the American mid-west to New York, and my knees take a beating every time some chump in the seat in front of me thinks he's in a first-class recliner. 555 packs of peanuts in your newly Spanish luggage.
