The Lyrics

I know I have some beat problems with this one. I'm working on it. Anyway...I figured that this one would work, because I do like the connection between the world and airline travel. And let's be honest, we've all been in that situation where we've been stuck in the airport with nothing to do.
Me and all my friends
It’s seems that we’re delayed
They say that we’re not leaving ‘cause
Our plane’s arriving late.
We have no idea what’s going wrong with the plane and those who fly it
A different flight is opened up, some of us will try it.
So we keep waiting (waiting)
Waiting for our plane to land.
We keep on waiting (waiting)
Waiting for our plane to land.
It’s hard to say we’re airborne
When all of us are indoors.
So, we keep on waiting (waiting)
Waiting for our plane to land.

If we had the power to fix the departure board
We wouldn’t be late for Christmas, no more waiting till the morn.
And as we’re watching television
We are bored out of our minds.
We’re waiting for information, oh,
To relieve us of this bind.

That’s why we’re waiting (waiting)
Waiting for our plane to land
We keep on waiting (waiting)
Waiting for our plane to land.
It’s not that we don’t care,
We just know that our flight ain’t there.

We’re still waiting (waiting)
Waiting for our plane to land.
We keep on waiting (waiting)
Waiting for our plane to land.

Although it does seem taxing,
I guess it’s just now taxiing.

We keep on waiting (waiting)
Waiting for our plane to land.
No, we keep on waiting (waiting)
Waiting for our plane to land.
We keep on waiting (waiting)
Waiting for our plane to land.
Waiting for our plane to land.
Waiting for our plane to land.
Waiting for our plane to land.
Since I'm still new to this, I'm trying to figure out these things. With that said, I made the best effort I could with this song.

Perfect pace means matching the syllables of the line in the OS (original song). Generally, this is completely natural for me; but if I'm dealing with something really difficult, like the one time I did "The Major General's song" I counted out the syllables of the OS and my subs to make sure they matched ...... Beyond that, you should match the INTONATION of words from the OS .... eg ... In your first parody, you subbed "To SCOT-land" for "Scara-MOUCHE", which is a teeny tiny intonation error. If you had subbed "To the SCOTS", you would have nailed it 100%
