Aeroflot
Sparks Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I don't know about you, but I'm sitting pretty
We're flying Aeroflot, we're flying Aeroflot
Vodka on ice, and a hostess who's witty


We're flying Aeroflot, we're flying Aeroflot
Buckle up, buckle up, buckle up, daddy-o
Stow your bags overhead or it ain't a go
Buckle up, buckle up, buckle up, daddy-o
You never know, you never know, do you


We're flying Aeroflot, we're flying Aeroflot, we're flying Aeroflot
We've got reservations


We're flying Aeroflot, we're flying Aeroflot, we're flying Aeroflot
We've got reservations


I don't know about you, but I love adventure
We're flying Aeroflot, we're flying Aeroflot


On Aeroflot, every flight's an adventure
We're flying Aeroflot, we're flying Aeroflot


Stretch on out, daddy-o, we're talking space
Every pilot is an honored Mig ace
Leningrad, St. Petersburg, in either case
You never know, you never you, do you


We're flying Aeroflot, we're flying Aeroflot, we're flying Aeroflot"
We've got reservations


We're flying Aeroflot, we're flying Aeroflot, we're flying Aeroflot
We've got reservations


Way back in coach they're singing 'Viva Vacation'
We're flying Aeroflot, we're flying Aeroflot


Up here in business is the United Nations
We're flying Aeroflot, we're flying Aeroflot


Blinis on your plate and Eisenstein on screen
Richard Branson must be turning red or green


Stewardesses look like high-school beauty queens
They never say nyet, service supreme, supreme


We're flying Aeroflot, we're flying Aeroflot, we're flying Aeroflot
We've got reservations


We're flying Aeroflot, we're flying Aeroflot, we're flying Aeroflot
We've got reservations
