Leaving. On a Jet Plane

30 Apr

*sings* (badly and off key)

            My bags are packed; I’m ready to go…

            (Humming vaguely to the tune) da do de do da

            doo de do…

            I’m leeeaving on a jet plane; I don’t know when 

            I’ll be back again,


(Trails off into awkward silence because I don’t know any more of the words)*


Ahem…sorry.  In case you didn’t already guess, I am leaving.  On a jet plane (or airplane, whichever you prefer).  I’ll be taking a Jazz plane and let me tell you, I am JAZZED!  I’m sure all you MMCers get the reference, and if not, *shakes head* for shame.


And now for your listening and viewing pleasure


… (Drum roll)


The song I was JUST singing! *gestures with a grand flourish*


 Ah, this song takes me back.  Back to the 90s when Ben Afleck and Bruce Willis were astronauts and Ben Afleck was in love with Bruce Willis’s daughter and there was a giant asteroid about to hit earth and Bruce Willis heroically sacrifices himself to save earth and all of mankind so that Ben Afleck can go and love his daughter and stuff and Bruce Willis blows up the asteroid and himself with it and everyone was sad, but you know happy at the same time because earth was still alive and kicking and so were they.


Oh. Right.  That was a movie.


In that case,



Spoiler Alert.


*as it turns out, the words I thought I knew to the song were completely wrong

These are the actual words… Well, some of them.

                              All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go

                              I’m standin’ here outside your door

                              I hate to wake you up to say goodbye

                              But the dawn is breakin’, it’s early morn

                              The taxi’s waitin’, he’s blowin’ his horn

                              Already I’m so lonesome I could die

                              So kiss me and smile for me

                              Tell me that you’ll wait for me

                              Hold me like you’ll never let me go

                             ‘Cause I’m leaving on a jet plane

                             I don’t know when I’ll be back again

                             Oh, babe, I hate to go

I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

    I’m JAZZED at your latest post and laughing my ass off at your interpretation of the lyrics. Have a good flight(s). Have you seen G’s blog? Apparently your idea is being contagious…
