The Lyrics

Plane got delayed (Plane got delayed)
The brakes are jammed (The brakes are jammed)
Engine’s shoddy (Engine’s shoddy)
And caked with sand (And caked with sand)
We’re waiting here forever, on and on
Because of weather, thunderstorm
It’s wet from snow and cold winds have blown
Golly, wish they’d told me our flight had been postponed

Yeah, I booked a flight.
I guess it had to… stop at this place, to have a pit stop.
Now, some of us might still have a long wait.
If you're dying to jet out… don’t hold your breath.
We’re stuck in here.

(Aeroplane still) hasn’t taken off, they are keeping it down in Bay M
Have yet to fix the wing and the time now is 4 am
The plane’s delayed and I am fed up at having to stay in
When you pay ‘em in full upfront, they screw ya… like the luggage weigh-in
I was frisked. Security police
Have freezing hands and it seems my ass was of a high priority
I just want to feel the mountain breeze, go downhill on my alpine skis
Or scuba dive around the seas, to push my outer boundaries
Take a holiday up to Alaska, maybe Calgary
From En-gl-and down to Belfast, perhaps Tel Aviv
Day tripping, whether visiting galleries, lakes, relatives
Rivers, canal routes or just checking out foundries
Whatever it’s worth, I’ll jet around Earth
Experience the range, every country and isthmus, I’ll travel the girth
But even Perth now seems absurd as we all sit around irked
We’re stuck here thanks to these jerks

Plane got delayed (Plane got delayed)
Our take-off banned (Our take-off banned)
No-one boarding (No-one boarding)
Stuck at the stand (Stuck at the stand)
I’m praying to the heavens, should have gone
Still at sea level, not airborne
The forecast warns of a cyclone
So I’m at the airport waiting here all alone

(So wait, I’m paying) for a ticket, yet sit, inside here trapped?
I shouldn’t have to climb on this vending machine to curl up and take a nap
Still fixing that wing? I’m stuck in this seat
Would drive to New Zealand, but it’s a million pounds to go by cab
These airport stands, serve bev-er-a-ges thicker than the snacks
The corridor escalators run in orbits, ride fast round the corners, and back
Do laps of the whole airrrr-port tracks
“Chat to Nebraskans stuck in the lounge.”
Make hats and planes, restack the handtowels
Southern China, I should be there, jet-lagged now
Instead of waitin’ around, I have done Sudoku for over two hours
Solitaire and tic-tac-toe
Man, I think I’ll be needing a bigger barfbag now
I’m sick of inept foul, service from attendants
They really lack clout, I’m furrow-ing my brow
Are you working to get in the skies, you laymen?
No, all those f***ers are eating Hungry Jacks now!

Plane got delayed (Plane got delayed)
It had to land (It had to land)
Got no luggage (Got no luggage)
Still in Japan (Still in Japan)
They’re having parts delivered? Can’t we board?
But they don’t give a… we’re all ignored
They say there’s ash cloud, a no-fly zone
Curse that hard-to-pronounce Icelandic volcano!

And I just can't sleep sitting this way
I’m starving, in pain, and taking out all my rage
Been stranded here, in this place all weekend
Abandoned here, on the solid ground
I've had enough, now I'm so fed up
I demand my free pack of peanuts right now!

This was my excursion to get free, a journey for me
Acerbically, the airport ended it ‘terminally’
(Well, shoot) now I feel my backbone atrophy, I just seethe and brood
Man, I need a meal or snack to eat, some freaking food
I am full of anger, mechanics keep hanging ‘round within the hangar
I never had a fear when up flyin’, now think I’m in danger
Avi…ators should make like ships with no anchors
And set off… where’s that fuel tanker?
Lousy holiday thanks to abhorrently
Naked bodily scanners and higher costs in billing fees, changing currency
I currently feel the airplane’s altitude... should match price elevation
I can’t afford a single ticket on it
You call this a deal? Wait long enough and I’ll take a sub
Bin my ticket stub, hikers get a quicker mile-high club!
Next time I’ll go by car, commute by balloon
Why’d I choose Business, paying first class?
Sitting’s a pain in the ass…

Plane got delayed (Plane got delayed)
There go my plans (There go my plans)
Where’s my luggage? (Where’s my luggage?)
Now in Iran (Now in Iran)
Been waiting here forever, nearing dawn
We cough and shiver, whine and yawn
Have yet to go but, we should have flown
Holler if you feel like you just want to go home
