The Lyrics

Who's a bunch of weasels?
Who's not quite the people's
Favourite airline company?
Who has got the nation's
Best public relations
Well.. best PR catastrophe?
All you frequent fliers
We know your desires
We'll get you from A to B
You will have your place
Unless we need the space
For a United employee

Fly United!
We will throw you off the plane
Fly United!
We won't bother to explain
Fly United!
So it's futile to complain
Fly United!
Can't you see we need a brain?
Fly United!
We will use excessive force
Fly United!
We will never show remorse
Fly United!
Until the twitterstorm, of course
Fly United!, fly United!

They will sue, They will sue
They will sue it's a new dispute

If you like adventure
Don't you wait to enter
Get on board our airplane fast
We think it don't matter
People getting battered
Kicked or punched or even glassed
If you gave us money
To carry your bunny
Don't you worry 'bout a thing
For its transportation
To its destination
But in this tale there is a sting:

Fly United!
Your bunny may not thrive
Fly United!
By the time that it arrives
Fly United!
It may no longer be alive
Fly United!
Oh dear, it did not survive
Fly United!
Now the owners are displeased
Fly United!
For their bunny, now deceased
Fly United!
Was left inside the deep freeze
Fly United!, Fly United!, Fly United! (Fly United!)

They will sue, they will sue
They will sue it's a new dispute


Our fault?

They will sue, they will sue
They will sue it's a new dispute

But, but, but, look at the small print
Hey, hey look
Man, we're getting sued by people who watched it on youtube

They will sue, They will sue
Fly United!

Oh my goodness.
Next time, can I go in a submarine?

They will sue, They will sue
Fly United!

Fly United!
Another passenger distraught
Fly United!
Though that isn't what we sought
Fly United!
There have been rather a lort
Fly United!, Fly United!
So we will see them all in court
Fly United!
Come protect the corp'rate brand
Fly United!
As on twitter it's shitcanned
Fly United!
And we get our arses tanned
Fly United!
Fly United!

Refusing to yield your seat and causing a commotion is just cause for removal. Doctor Dao could have just complied and would have been compensated properly. He became combative and belligerent. He got what he deserved. 3's

"Fly United" could also be kinda an anthem title for Manchester United (though with Zlatan injured, maybe next year).

@United passenger - "what he deserved"??? I'm glad you're not part of the customer service of any company I use. So what did the potentially world-record-sized bunny do to deserve being put in the freezer?

@Peter - I'd be far more inclined to use a different first word starting with the same letter, if it were to be about Man U ;-)
Second United passenger - May 10, 2017 - Report this comment
When all the facts come to light, you have to conclude that everything United did was reasonable and that "Dr" Dao was behaving in a grotesquely unreasonable way. Let's not forget that after Dao was dragged off the plane, he came BACK into the cabin, which is most certainly a violation of Federal transportation law and a mark of somebody who is probably suffering from some mental disorder. Moreover, Dao was chosen to be kicked off based on an algorithm which picks passengers who will be least inconvenienced by getting bumped. In other words, United had another flight for him going within the next two hours. So what was United supposed to do; wait on the tarmac for hours on end, so that some of the passengers onboard will miss connecting flights? So that other flights down the stream will get delayed? The plane has to leave. You cant throw a monkey wrench into airline traffic just because you've decided to carry on like a little b*tch

Phil apparently knows nothing of air travel and air safety. If the captain or flight crew ask you to leave the aircraft for ANY reason, a passenger MUST comply. When you purchase a ticket, you agree to all terms. It's not an option to argue nor refuse to leave your seat. They should have tasered him for less fuss IMHO.

Here's to your liberal right to also talk about bombs on a plane or yell Fire! in a crowded movie theater. Leftists never think before speaking.

Quite funny. Well done. Your critics miss the point of parody. As usual, they are angry ideologues. Third United Passenger, better known as Shikelgruber, is hilarious: "You vill obey orders and read your contract, or ve vill be forced to taser you in ze friendly skies."
Rob Arndt - May 11, 2017 - Report this comment
It's Schicklgruber which refers to Maria, the paternal grandmother of Adolf Hitler and mother of Hitler's father Alois who was illegitimate. Alois later adopted his stepfather's surname of Heidler and had it changed to Hitler. It is unclear who Alois' father was, but the Frankenberger lie was exposed after Nuremberg. There were NO Jewish families living in Graz, Austria when Maria was pregnant. Hitler had no Jewish blood. It is believed that one of the Heidler brothers may have gotten Maria pregnant. Do I really have to school you people again? While Alois' father is unknown and there could be a chance he was a Jew or part Jewish... like a true scientist would state: not impossible, just improbable given the nation, birthplace, and prevailing anti-Semitism of the time. Maria, btw, was a devout Catholic, so being with a Jew was a non-starter. The shame of her pregnancy meant Alois kept his mother's name. He changed Heidler to Hitler not only for a new identity, but because he hated his step father, just as Adolf would grow to hate his father who thrashed him frequently for no cause.

Spare us the Third Reich tedium, Herr Arndt. The British made use of "Schicklgruber" for propaganda purposes since even to Germans, the name is laughable. The Stooges used it numerous times as the only name by which they would refer to Hitler. It's a joke, son. Joke, that is.
Rob Arndt - May 11, 2017 - Report this comment
Ignorance is still ignorance. And why make fun of his grandmother? The British and French made up the bulk of myths surrounding Hitler. I'm surprised so many intelligent people today still believe them. I especially love the college educated that still don't know much about real history. What is fact, what is fiction. And, I was only commenting on the misspelling of the name. Putting history behind it only educates further.

Wasn't there a BA flight that had to return back to the airport due to an air cleaning system malfunction that spread a bad toilet smell into the cockpit and rest of the sections? I read that the crew and passengers were gagging and vomiting over a male passenger's poop caught in ventilation!!! How do you explain that as a delay?

I find this all to be useless twaddle.
