The Lyrics

A flight...attendant
Her man...repentant
He’ll try...too woo Elaine
He boards the Airplane!

Good luck...we’re counting on you
To land in this soup
We all pray
You’ll land this Airplane!

Tell me why
(Those pilots ate that bad dish)
Who will fly?
(Now that they’re sick from raw fish)
Was it fried
Or was over under done today?
Who’ll fly that Airplane!

The fog...is thicker
Leon...is larger
Can he land that Airplane!

Tell me why
Can’t upload in the red zone
Captain Over
(Call for you on the white phone)
“No the white”
That patient needs her heart today
Watch for that Airplane!

The plane is sure to crash. Passengers hopes are dashed
Now that’s what the paper’s say, yeah
Articles of plenty, there’s a sale at Penney’s
The Russian New Year’s Mayday!

Ted Stri...ker’s the guy
He’s stay...in alive
He flew the war, now back for more
The auto-pilot scored
------------------------------------------------------------------
(Those pilots ate that bad dish)
Who will fly?
(Now that they’re sick from raw fish)
Was it fried
Or was over under done today?
Who’ll fly that Airplane!

Tell me why
(Those pilots ate that bad dish)
Who will fly?
(Now that they’re sick from raw fish)
Was it fried
Or was over under done today?
Who’ll fly that Airplane!

Tell me why
Can’t upload in the red zone
Captain Over
(Call for you on the white phone)
“No the white”
That patient needs her heart today
Watch for that Airplane!

Now go watch that Airplane!

"He laughed. How he laughed."
"Howie laughed?"
"No, Howie never laughs. Real serious guy. Buddy laughed."
"I thought you said he didn't laugh."
"No, Buddy laughs at everything" 555

"Leon's getting larger" was in Airplane 2 (a highly underrated sequel, IMHO). Wished you could have changed the chorus more. Surely, I can be serious.

Shirley you were joking! Looks like you picked the wrong week to give up sniffing glue...one of my favorite movies, loved it.
Jeff Reuben - October 18, 2007 - Report this comment
Agrimorfee, thanks!...For the record "Leon's getting larger" was in the original Airplane (I just broke out the DVD to confirm). Towards the end as they're getting closer to Chicago.

(Dec 2.2) Big effort here, Jeffaroo...it's got to be hard to spoof a spoof movie, but you did a fine job. 555

(dec2.2) it was odds on you'd be choosing this movie, Jeff! but what a great title sub! - had me laughing before I started - very funny parody - here's 555 for the Gipper

(Decathlon 2.0) Of all the times to miss a cult classic - I miss out on all the good gags here! At least I'm over-familiar with the OS (of which you missed a line in the second verse). Brilliant job, Jeff!

(Dec2) Yeah I caught a number of little pacing issues, but still cute parody Jeff, one of the reason's you are known as a veteran is your ability to cross all genres.

Disappointed you didn't get in the "We have to get her to hospital
What is it?
It's a big building with lots of patients, but that's not important now" gag.. but I guess it wouldn't scan. :-)

My friends used to tease me at lunch last year by singing this OS cause they knew I didnt like it. I wish it was THIS, not the OS,and the movie is IMO on of the funniest ever made.5s

DEC2- I just want to say, good luck. We're all counting on you. ...(leaves, comes back)... I just want to say, good luck. We're all counting on you. Ha. I LOVE Airplane and it's just-as-funny sequel. It's great that someone can pay homage to this classic comedy in such a very funny parody. Very well done, Jeff.

Decathlon...how can you miss when you're writing about the funniest movie of all time? You can't...you really can't. Well, YOU can't, Jeff...=) Nice work!
Matthias - February 27, 2009 - Report this comment
Loved the movie! My favorite film of all time I'd say next to The Naked Gun series... Good ol' Leslie Neilson. I also enjoy how the music video for this song also takes place at an airport, it just makes me smile.

Believe it or not I've never seen the movie this was based on, but that explains why some of the lines threw me off. . .very well written, and got the gist of the movie from the parody.

(ABC) yes, fond memories of this one, Jeff. I like my parodies funny - like my women
Melanie Lee - March 12, 2009 - Report this comment
(ABC) I love the idea of this, and your parody is amusing. However, your pacing is really rough; you even left out a line or two. Thanks for reminding me of a funny movie, though! 3-4-4.

Looks like I picked the wrong week to not read a parody. Airplane! is one of the best movies ever, so we are definitely on for that... we have to watch "Big Trouble in Little China" too. Good parody of a not so good OS. :)
