Never seen this one before
But I think i know how it ends
Nothing really happens
Nothing changes but the lens
I'm sipping grin and tonic and take off is all set
Sittin between D.B. Cooper and a pretty young brunette
As the plane begins to lift off
She begins to drift off
My heart falls for her as her head falls to my shoulder
Could I get a walk on part in her dreams could it even be bolder

Outside the window a creature on the wing
Tips his hat as he starts to sing

You will hear my song as the plane goes down
You'll be allright once you hit the ground

We'll see who's paying for soft drinks in siberia
You'll wish you'd been blacklisted when you see the parts you get
Sellin coal on the black market baby
All the worlds gettin paid
tragedy is all the rage
A transcontinental greyhound bus I found
A flying jalopy and the jewel of the crown
Just going somewhere else to wander around
Might be raining beneath the clouds
You will hear my song as the plane goes down
You'll be allright once you hit the ground

In the spotlight so many lines
All the world's a cage
Everyman for himself
Women, children and lambs
First class, business class, burning class, steerage
Welcome the stormy seas
Just keep your eyes glued to the screen

One blink too many--Cooper wakes me up
Forget my dreams as Cooper says, "I don't mean to interrupt."
But I don't need no boxcutter, baby
Just smash your bombay bottle on this trashy TV screen
First order of business is to jettison things
For our last performance, my friend, we'll be living like kings

It'll be allright once we hit the ground
