That Plane Lyrics Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show

(D. Locorriere/S. Silverstein)

The traffic at this hour is so thick that he's
afraid he might be late Her flight arrives at
seven ten and he remembers how the lady hates to
wait And he remembers losing her and begging her
to give him time to change Now his mind is numb
'cos the time has come, his final chance is coming
in on that plane

She fastens up her seat belt and nervously she
finishes her drink An all night flight from L.A.
can give a woman a little bit too much time to
think And she hopes deep in her heart that he'll
be different but she knows he'll be the same And
she wonders if the stewardess would be kind enough
to just let her stay on that plane

That plane settling in to the heavy city haze
Where she remembers guilty nights and baby please
forgive me days That plane screaming as loud as
the pain that they both feel As she slowly
unfastens her belt and he clutches the wheel

He's one mile from the airport, damn traffic's
backed up all along the lane She waits five
minutes takes a breath and turns around and gets
back on the aeroplane She'll ride it through to
Denver, she's got friends there, they could spend
a little time 'Cause she knew he'd never be there,
and he knows she never was the waiting kind

That plane rising up into the heavy city haze
Where she remembers guilty nights and baby please
forgive me days That plane screaming as loud as
the pain that they both feel As she slowly
unfastens her belt and he clutches the wheel
