Bob Rivers – Beat Up Old Jetliner lyrics

Goodbye to all my friends I've known
And the travel agent I trusted.
I'm riding along on this beat up old plane
Look out the window, all the rivets are rusted.

As that ground crew pushes us backwards
On that rickety L-1011
I'm feeling around for that flotation device
And when the safety film is showing, I'm paying close attention...

Beat up old jet liner
Hope you got a tuneup today
Oh, beat up old jet liner
Did they sneak you past the FAA?

Bouncing around in a thunder cloud...
Landing gear won't come down.
My seat back is up, and my belt is on
I see the fire crews spraying foam on the ground.

And if I get to my final destination
I know the next flight will surely be free...
But I don't think I'll go back up into that
Piece of shit just to save a few pennies...

Beat up old jetliner
Won't carry me too far today
Oh, give me a fresh airliner
I don't care what I've got to pay.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Beat up old jetliner
Don't carry me too far today
Oh, beat up old jetliner
Cause it's home that I'd rather stay
