The Lyrics

Tanya had the original hit, #1 on the country chart in 1973. Helen Reddy then had the pop #1 hit.
Delta flight.
Why ain't we flying tonight?
Could it be long background check made of that guy?
And did I hear them say
that we would still have to pay
even though we won't heading for the sky.

Flight 41, leaves at 10:00 from Newark, baby.
All the folks around the terminal feeling hazy.
And I walk around here with a suitcase in my hand
wondering how much more delay I can stand.

Delta flight.
Why ain't we flying tonight?
Could it be long background check made of that guy?
And did I hear them say
that we would still have to pay
even though we won't heading for the sky.

Just last Saturday, I booked a Delta flight.
Prettiest stewardesses in my sight.
But a man of low degree was taken aside
and it took so long to check him, cancelled my ride.

Delta flight.
Why ain't we flying tonight?
Could it be long background check made of that guy?
And did I hear them say
that we would still have to pay
even though we won't heading for the sky.

the delay would be a LOT easier to stand, mate, if you just put that suitcase down for a few minutes - and no way should you pay for the experience - I'm OUTRAGED on your behalf, MP - (I'm writing Delta a poison letter as soon as I finish this comment!) (and have a cup of tea) - 555
