1980’s Elvis Costello Song

We get our boarding passes
and head on thro’ the gate ,
we always get there early
so that we’re never ever late.

(Chorus):And we don’t know
until the Plane crashes
just how long
this flight’s gonna take

We sit next to each other
say “hello” and have a chat ,
though neither of us knows which
of our names is gonna be pulled from the hat.

And we don’t know
until the Plane crashes
just how long
this flight’s gonna take

Drinks are served as we watch the in-flight movie
“Airport 75 “,that’s okay,
smiling at the thought how we’ll get
into separate cabs when we land at JFK

And we don’t know
until the Plane crashes
just how long
this flight’s gonna take

During our brief time together
we’ll buy presents for our spouses ,
so that we don’t have to talk to them
when we return back home to our separate houses.

And we don’t know
until the Plane crashes
just how long
this flight’s gonna take.
