The Lyrics

Fleeing From My Jet Plane

George Bush walks away from his jet in April, 1972.So he goes AWOL instead.Evidently, he had 'other priorities' than flying the jet we the taxpayers shelled out more than a million bucks to train him to fly in.
All the paperwork's done, I'm ready to roll
Gonna blow this town, heading to 'Bama
I hate to stick around, I've got things to do
But the guys in suits, they're trying to find me
So the campaign trail, it's a-calling for me
Already, I'm itching to hit the road and be gone

Don't miss me and don't come looking
Tell them that I'm somewhere else
Don't let nobody know where I am
Cause I'm fleeing from my jet plane
Don't ever want to fly again
Oh man, I hate those physicals!

There's so many times I've done the rounds
So many times I've played around
I snorted coke and drank the booze so fine
Every bar in town, they know me real well
Every cathouse in town, I know it well
When I paint the town, I cover it with two coats

Don't miss me and don't come looking
Tell them that I'm somewhere else
Don't let nobody know where I am
Cause I'm fleeing from my jet plane
Don't ever want to fly again
Oh man, I hate those physicals!

Now the time has come to head on out
Get away from Poppy, he's such a lout
Gonna hide away from the long arm of the law
They can't find me, I'll be long gone
Down in Montgomery, hiding away from them
No one will ever find me there, you'll see

Don't miss me and don't come looking
Tell them that I'm somewhere else
Don't let nobody know where I am
Cause I'm fleeing from my jet plane
Don't ever want to fly again
Oh man, I hate those physicals!

Cause I'm fleeing from my jet plane
Don't ever want to fly again
Oh man, I hate those physicals!
