The Lyrics

Inspired by the increasing number of airlines going bankrupt
All the bills, they can't afford
Can't pay them no more
Riding along in this bankrupt jet plane
I've been thinking about their loans
But these bail outs seem so far away
And I feel like it'll never be done
The government's trying to make us pay
You know we gotta support this con

Oh, more in-debt airliners
Filed for bankruptcy yesterday
Oh, more in-debt airliners
Now it's us that will have to pay

Goodbye to all my trips from home
The prices will soon be adjusted
I've got to go out and make more pay
For plane tickets, cuz my airline's busted
Soon I'll dart on over to Northwest
And I'll get on their 707
Ridin' high I'll have tears in my eyes
Having just crackers is hell
Drinks will be $8.11

More in-debt airliners
Filed for bankruptcy yesterday
Oh, oh more in-debt airliners
Now it's us that will have to pay

Touchin' down hope we don't drown
No more masks dropping down
Got to keep on hangin' on
You know the big wheel's barely spinnin' around
I'd be going with some hesitation
Taking an airline that's in bankruptcy
Cuz I don't want to get dropped off, out on the
Runway while we hitch rides to the city.

More in-debt airliners
Filed for bankruptcy yesterday
Oh, oh more in-debt airliners
Now it's us that will have to pay

More in-debt airliners
Filed for bankruptcy yesterday
Oh, oh more in-debt airliners
Now it's us that will have to pay
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

(repeat chorus)

I like the lyrics...I can't remember how exactly the song goes (except for the repetitive chorus parts, of course), so if I have a chance later on today I'll listen to the OS and come back...

Topical. 5s. How about "Fly With the Legal [protection of the bankruptcy court]"?
