The Lyrics

Don't be surprised if a Southwest flight crew adopts this song
Chorus:

Flyin' that plane
Actin' insane
On Southwest
We work and have fun too

Up in the air
There's no despair
And our planes are the best
Birds in the air

Southwest Airlines
Makes it on time
Leaves Dallas Love Field
'bout a quarter to nine

No reserved seats
First come first served
Up in the sky
And transporting you

Flyin' that plane
Actin' insane
On Southwest
We work and have fun too

Up in the air
There's no despair
And our planes are the best
Birds in the air

Blue skies ahead
No bankruptcy dread
We always make a profit, enough said

We are not arrogant
Like other airlines
We throw bags of peanuts and sing crazy songs

Flyin' that plane
Actin' insane
On Southwest
We work and have fun too

Up in the air
There's no despair
And our planes are the best
Birds in the air

Our flight crews are
Really creative
They have fun and are not combative

They sing songs about
Smoking on the wing
Southwest's irreverent humor is the airline's best thing

Flyin' that plane
Actin' insane
On Southwest
We work and have fun too

Up in the air
There's no despair
And our planes are the best
Birds in the air

Flyin' that plane
Actin' insane
On Southwest
We work and have fun too

Up in the air
There's no despair
And our planes are the best
Birds in the air

And our planes are the best
Birds in the air
