The Lyrics

Waiting in line at the airport? Sing it now!
All around the world I've been traveling
Who knows how long I've waited
Everywhere I go people are complaining
Twenty-five years old they think terrorism is my goal

I just wanna fly
Take your hands and search me, baby
Make my flight, just maybe
I just wanna fly
Then I'll wait in line for boarding
This whole damn thing is boring

Call a little backup, ask me where I've been
Think I'll take you hostage? Wanna search me more then?
There's no time to think about opening my bags again
It won't explode in the hold, I ain't even smuggling gold

I just wanna fly
Put your cuffs around me, baby
I'll board this decade, maybe
I just wanna fly
You really are a half-wit
This security stuff is bullshit
I just want to fly

All around the world, you got it in for me
Who knows how long I've stood here
Everyone I see has strip searched me
Twenty-five years old, I'll be thirty by the time I go

I just wanna fly
Wait in line for peanuts
I really gotta be nuts
I just wanna fly
And then I'll just sit next to
Some lady weighing four-o-two
I just want to cry
Get this thing in the sky
Home of the Old Comedywriter Where I parody EVEN MORE than music!

You're "Old_Comedywriter" from the boards, right? Finally came from the boards to have a look. Good, but you lost me a bunch of times on pacing. However, I can't take many points off because this song is really hard to parody. It seems no one else even tried to incorporate the 'extra guy' lines. Keep it coming, Earl.
