Country Joe McDonald – Air Algiers lyrics
I hopped on a plane
Oakland New York
Oakland New York
New York to Marseilles.
Yes, I hopped on a plane
Oakland, New York to Marseilles
Pigs on my trail,
Hey, I got to make my getaway.

Ah, when the man holler
You sure got to jump boy
You sure got to jump hey
You got to jump bail
When the man hollers now
Sure got to jump bail
First fair trial, hey,
And then they put you back in jail.

Ah come on now!
Oh yeah!
Alright!

Hey now I can remember
A-seein' my picture
A-seein' my picture
On the post-office wall.
Yeah, I can remember my picture
On the post-office wall.
I can remember the day
That the F.B.I. called.

I got to make my connection,
I got a one-way ticket
I got a one-way ticket
I'm flyin' Air Algiers.
I got to make my connection
A one-way on Air Algiers.
I think I'll go to the Casbah
Cool it for a couple a years.
