(Note: This was posted before The Big Blogger Meltdown, when the folks at blogspot.com decided to delete a day's worth of our posts to help them, somehow, in their site-maintenance. They promised to put them all back but, so far, I don't know of anyone who has had a missing post re-posted by the Blogger Boys. I've decided on a do-it-myself approach. If they also re-post it, I can delete one. In the meantime, it seems the Thursday Theme Song home page fell prey to the maintenance wizards, too.)
Never flew before on seven-forty-sevens,
Thought lots before deciding what to do.
All that talk of upstairs barrooms,
Reclining beds and comfort
Rang false, ’stead of true.
Economy is not the place for lounging,
And we’ve often had that kind of flight before.
It’s just not the place for lounging,
And, girl, don’t they warn ya
It’s a bore, it’s a bore.
Out of room, we have no bed,
Out of my seat, off to the head,
We’re underserved, we’re underfed,
We wanna go home!
It’s never comfy here in center seating,
And girl, don’t they warn ya
It’s hot, man, it’s hot.
Will you tell the folks back home we really made it?
Got to Amsterdam and got us on the cruise.
Please tell them that we’re happy,
Just tell them that we’re happy, that's the news,
That's our good news.
Seems it always rains in Europe when folks go there,
But hardly rained at all when we were there.
It alway rains somewhere in Europe,
But if you're there in springtime,
It’s warm, man, it’s warm.
