The Lyrics

Don't Know The Original Song (DKTOS)? It's on YouTube.
Carry on your luggage, son
You'll have peace when travel's done
Place your bag up overhead
Or down on the floor


Used to fly above the noise and confusion
With my luggage checked and held in seclusion
I could trust in every flier
Those were friendly skies

Then along came airline deregulation
And my bags would go to some random station
So take advantage of my knowledge
Heed your dad's advice

Carry on your luggage, son
You'll have peace when travel's done
Place your bag up overhead
Or down on the floor

Then the airlines started all losing money
And their future wasn't lookin' real sunny
And so they started charging extra
For every bag they have to stow

When you pick a flight and purchase a ticket
Won't be long until you tell them to stick it
'Cause every bag you want to check through
Gonna make the charges grow

Carry on your luggage, son
You'll have peace when travel's done
Place your bag up overhead
Or down on the floor

Carry on
'Cause it's free and it's speedy
Carry on
But they're getting too greedy
Now they wanna charge for luggage
That you bring aboard the plane

Put your suitcase in your trunk
All these airline fees are bunk
Put yourself behind the wheel
And just drive
Don't you fly no more

No more!

They charge for carry ons now? It probably depends on what airline you go with. Southwest is usually cool and they usually don't even charge you for your main luggage as long as it weighs less than a certain amount.

Matty, according to Forbes, "...carriers such as Spirit, Frontier, and Allegiant have implemented various types of fees for carry-ons." It may just be a matter of time before other airlines follow suit. But I'm with you -- I fly Southwest whenever possible.

Never traveled anywhere on a plane. Now it looks as though I never will. Between the rules and the TSA, and the cost. Glad most everyone I know lives within driving distance.

I also had the idea of making a song about carry on luggage. I was pleased to find that somebody else had the same idea.
