The Lyrics

The red zone is for loading and unloading fives only. There is no one-loading in the red zone. If you give me a one on this, the s---'s really gonna hit the fan!
When the plane's piloted by Kareem
Abdul-Jabbar and Peter Graves
no peace can Robert Hays find
he'll be... the man who saves!

(This plane is falling now!)
Surely, you can't be serious!
Surely, you can't be serious!
Be serious!
Be serious!

Robert Stack is in the tower!
Leslie Nielsen plays the doctor!
Lloyd Bridges can't quit smoking!
All these silly sight gags joking!
(Mrs. Cleaver blaccent talking!)
Rubber doll Hagerty's stalking!
Be serious!
Be serious!

When the plane's piloted by Kareem
Abdul-Jabbar and Peter Graves
no peace can Robert Hays find
he'll be... the man who saves!

(This plane is falling now!)
Surely, you can't be serious!
Surely, you can't be serious!
Be serious!
Be serious!
Be serious!
Be serious!
According to the Internet Media Database, the role of co-pilot Roger Murdock ("We have clearance, Clarence!" "Roger, Roger! Oveur, over! What's our vector, Victor?") was originally supposed to go to... Pete Rose. I'll bet you 20 bucks he wouldn't have done as good a job as Kareem. And the role of troubled pilot Ted Striker, played by Robert Hays... they originally wanted Barry Manilow. Had he been flying the plane, no one would have sung "Looks Like We Made It." Or "Stayin' Alive," for that matter. So there.

you didn't mention the little girl (who ended up in Loveboat) with the tube in her arm - just trying to catch you on something, anything, MP - 555 - especially for the bizarre wackiness of the idea

Surely, this is a great parody. What can be done with "Let the sunshine in" I wonder? (You should have said, "Mrs. Cleaver's doing jive talking"!) 555 giggles, just like the movie.
