The Lyrics

I do not have this (thank god)
I can't stand to fly
I'm not that crazy
I'll just ride my bike
And keep my own body

Airplanes aren't like birds, they're just big deathtraps
They're metal machines made by the Japs
Hey it's not easy to fear flying

Anyone who flies
'Specially overseas
Finds a way to die
Their homes, they'll never see

I may sound absurd, but listen to me
Every Boeing's packed with TNT
I may sound disturbed, but with some chagrin
I announce that Airbus has problems within
Hey it's not easy to fear flying

Don't go up, up, and away
It's not right, it'll be your last tonight
I'm not crazy or anything

I can't stand to fly
I'm not that crazy
Men weren't meant to ride
With clouds beneath their wings

They're only metal with some silly shine
Travelin' distances with some airline
They're gassed up to go, ready for ride
But there's trouble on the inside
on the inside... on the inside (x2)

They're only metal with 200 foot wings
Tails and flaps and dangerous things
They're only metal with 200 foot wings

Hey it's not easy to fear flying

I agree. I really didn't like this one and it was a pain to write. Sorry about the little "2001s" thing i didnt know.
