The Lyrics

All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go.
I'm standing here eating some more.
I'd hate to wake you up to get some eggs to fry.

But the dawn is breaking its early morn.
The pizza car went by blowing his horn.
Already I'm so hungry I could die.

So miss me, and smile for me
Tell me that you'll cook for me
Cold beef can be so hard to let go.
Cause I'm starving on a jet plane.
Don't know when I'll eat food again.
Oh, babe I really hate to go.

There's so many foods I could put down.
But my plane just hit the ground, and I tell you I really don't want to miss that thing.

Every fast food place I past I think of food.
Every Snack bar, and cheap cafés too.
When I get back I'll eat at Dairy Queen.

So miss me, and smile for me
Tell me that you'll cook for me
Cold beef can be so hard to let go.
Cause I'm starving on a jet plane.
Don't know when I'll eat food again.
Oh, babe I really hate to go.

Well now the time has come to eat food.
Peanuts please pass me more I beg of you.
These Continental Flights can be such a pain.

Dream about the food to come.
When I won't leave Burger King alone.
About the times I won't have to starve and die.

So miss me, and smile for me
Tell me that you'll cook for me
Even though there was food in the terminal
Cause I'm starving on a jet plane.
Don't know when I'll eat food again.
Oh, babe I really hate to go.

Some turbulence in the pacing, otherwise a fun read. 4,5,5.

Matthias, Guy pinned it exactly. The pace wobbles in some places, a bit too much to give you "5" there, but it was a good, fun story. 4-5-5 from me, too.

Uh...ditto on the pacing? lol I am way too familiar with their lack of food, though.
