"Landing On A Jet Plane" Song Parody


Hillary Clinton's wartime fairy tale of landing in Bosnia under heavy sniper fire just begged to be parodied in song. And who better to write that parody than our own Charles Henrickson so without further adieu:

LANDING ON A JET PLANE
Tune: "Leaving on a Jet Plane" Original


All the odds are stacked, I'm ready to run
I'm standin' here, holdin' my gun
I hate to call you up to say goodbye
But the battle's ragin', I hear the sounds
The tank is waitin', he's shootin' some rounds
I know there's so much danger I could die

So send me to Bosnia
Tell me they'll be bombin' us
Sniper fire will never get me down
I'm landin' on a jet plane
I don't know if I'll be back again
Oh, Bill, we're on the ground

There's so many shots, it takes my breath
So many times I've cheated death
I tell you now, we just lost a wing
Every combat zone, I pay my dues
Every mission flown is stuff I'll use
Some day I'll throw my pantsuit in the ring

So send me to Bosnia
Tell me they'll be bombin' us
Sniper fire will never get me down
I'm landin' on a jet plane
I don't know if I'll be back again
Oh, Bill, we're on the ground

Now the time has come for battle
My future's not as bright as cattle
I'll close my eyes, while the cannons boom
I'll dream about the campaign trail
When I can tell my wartime tale
About the time I faced death and doom

So send me to Bosnia
Tell me they'll be bombin' us
Sniper fire will never get me down
I'm landin' on a jet plane
I don't know if I'll be back again
Oh, Bill, we're on the ground

Look. I like a nice song parody or musical satire as much as anyone.

Reading them is not the same.

Enough, please.

I don't know, anon 1:50... Usually I skip the song parodies, but I found this one highly amusing. ;)
