How’d I Get On This Flight?


An island get away.  A simple plan
Leave the Northwest, head out of this rain, get my toes in the sand
Hawaiian islands.  Maui makes sense
Tropical beauty but not leaving modern convenience
A flawless plan.  Now wouldn’t you think?
What could go wrong?  Well, I found out after too many drink


Oh, how did I get on this flight?  Have I really been sleeping that long?
I’m landing in Kansas tonight.  Help me Dorothy, something’s gone wrong
Missed connection in LAX.  I’m clicking heals with all my might
I’m wishing for my Hawaiian fix.  Oh, how did I get on this flight?
Yeah, how did I get on this flight?


All my panic, it soon takes flight
I come up with a plan, I’m gonna get my butt on a new jet tonight
A few more dollars, well that won’t bankrupt me
I’ll fly out of that dust bowl and get headed back for Hawaii
So I order more drinks.  ‘Cause my plan was tight
What could go wrong?  Perhaps the steward saying, “Good night”


Oh, how did I get on this flight?  Have I really been sleeping that long?
I’m landing in Atlanta tonight.  Help me Scarlett, ‘cause something’s gone wrong
Missed connection in the dust bowl.  Don’t say you don’t give a damn tonight
Hawaii’s what I need for my soul.  Oh, how did I get on this flight?
Yeah, how did I get on this flight?


How did I get on this flight?  Have I really been sleeping that long?
I’m landing in Hawaii tonight.  The Twilight Zone has my vacation back on
Bad connections falling behind.  Rod Serling booked unusual flight
But this episode is turning out fine ‘cause I finally land in Maui tonight
Yeah, I finally land in Maui tonight.  I don’t know what was going on
But my travel plans worked out right.  I guess nothing else could go wrong
Another drink before we finally touch down.  I don’t have any fear or dread
‘Cause this time when it comes around… I’ll give it to the steward instead
Yeah, I’ll give it to the steward instead
