Up on the airplane
Nearer my God to thee
I start making a deal
Inspired by gravity
(Inspired by gravity)

If I did wrong I won't do it again
(Ooh)
'Cause I can be sweet and good and nice
And if I had enemies their friends
(Pap paa)
I'll hold to my life with the grip of a vice
(Pap paa, pap paa)

And I'm up on the airplane
(Up on the airplane)
Nearer my God to thee
(Nearer my God)
(Nearer my God to thee)
I start making a deal
(Up on my [Incomprehensible])
Inspired by gravity
(Inspired by gravity)

That little spot on the ground is my hometown
(On the ground, my hometown)
I like to call it my home and it's sweet
I'd rather take a seat down there
(Pap paa)
Than a throne up here up above thirty thousand feet
(Pap paa, pap paa)

And I'm up on the airplane

I never should have read my horoscope
Or the fortune on the bubble gum strip
Saying what you think won't happen will
Great thing to read before a trip
On an airplane
(Eee)

Pilot says the big blue sky's like a swimmin' pool
Big fluffy clouds like a feather bed
I'd rather have a real pillow underneath my head
(Pap pa paa, pap pa paa)
Lyin' in my bed which is in my hometown
(Pap pa paa)
Which is on the ground

Far from an airplane
(My bed, my hometown)
Far from an airplane
(On the ground my bed, my hometown)
Far from an airplane
(On the ground my bed, my hometown)
On the airplane
(On the ground)

Far from an airplane
(My bed, my hometown)
Far from an airplane
(On the ground my bed, my hometown)
Far from an airplane
(On the ground my bed, my hometown)
On the airplane
(On the ground)

(I'll be makin' a deal)
On the airplane
(On the ground)
(I'll be makin' a deal)
On the airplane
(I'll be makin' a deal)
(I'll be makin' a deal)
(I'll be makin' a deal)
