The Guess Who – Orly lyrics

Well, if you ever been to Paris and you ever missed a plane
Nothin' much to do but sit around
Think a little???? Will laugh at where you come from
Have another glass of Paris Brown

I'm alone and they're still jivin'
He plugged himself in and left her screamin'

Planes are goin' up
Planes are comin' down
Bells around here about enough to drive a poor boy mad
Planes are goin' up
Planes are comin' down
Better get to Rome and have a look at younger sister of my Dad

------ short instrumental break ------

Well, the mission was accomplished on the day that you arrived
Maria hung you out and let you dry
You never understood the language lesson that she gave you
Caught it in reflection of her eye

I'm alone and they're still jivin'
He plugged himself in and left her droolin'

Planes are goin' up
Planes are comin' down
Bells around here about enough to drive a poor boy mad
Planes are goin' up
Planes are comin' down
Better get to Rome and have a look at younger sister of my Dad

    Orly airport had annoying electronic bells that rung just before every announcement. If you were trying to sleep you couldn't simce the bells would wake you every few minutes I also had a sick wife and 4 restless kids I know orly was a horrible airport to wait in during the 90s when high security would not allow any access to the outside. In the 70s it probably was worse since the french were also big smokers. The guess who had nothing to do but write a song. I just have a few bad hopefully forgettable memories but whenever I hear this song it brings me back.
