Cheap Flights, Cheap flights, Cheap flights

Following my post about Ryan Air and Aer Lingus last week, I was reminded of the fun song by Fascinating Aida: Cheap Flights.

See if you recognise the situations! Be warned! Some strong language!

We recieved an invitation in the post one Monday morn’
To attend our cousins wedding in the town where we were born
The do was back in Kerry; so wishing to be frugal
We trawled the ‘net to find some decent travel deals on Google

Cheap flights, cheap flights, cheap as they can be,
we found an airline selling flights for 50p,
(Diddly aiden daidin daidin dai)

Well we clicked on to the website and were mightily surprised,
To find the actual cost wasn’t quite as advertised,
We’d forgotten airport taxes, that also to be billed,
But a bargain is a bargain and begorrah we were thrilled,

Cheap flights, cheap flights, Stanstead to Tralee,
It isn’t every airline offers flights for 50p,
(Diddly aiden daidin daidin dai (x3))

After studying the website we decided it was best,
To pay priority boarding so that we’d sit three abreast,
(Three abreast, that’s the best)
And of course we’d all have luggage, so that’s an extra cost,
And then we paid insurance incase our cases might get lost,

Our cheap flights, cheap flights, it’s obvious to see,
There must be extra charges when the flights are 50p,
(Minya, minya, minya, key change)

At last the flight was booked, with all of the additions,
We’d read the realms of smallprint, of terms and conditions,
And then picked up the charge for using VISA which was drastic,
‘Cause how the feck are you supposed to pay if not with fecking plastic?
Cheap flights, cheap flights, we paid the fecking fee,
Because by now we were commited to the flights for 50p,
(Diddly aiden daidin daidin dai (3))
(Someone’s being diddled and it’s us, so it is)

(a-hmm, a-hmm, a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-hmm)
Now I don’t know if you’ve tried looking at Stanstead on a map,
But checking in at 5am is a fecking load of crap,
Its packed if you try to catch a train or underground,
So a taxi to the arse in the world was more than 100 pounds,

Cheap flights, cheap flights, we should have gone by sea,
There’s no such fecking thing as a fecking flight for 50p,
(Feckity feckity feckity feckity feck, feck, feck (x2))

Then at last we reached the airport where we had to pay a fine,
The fecking feckers charged us ’cause we hadn’t checked in online,
And finally aboard the flight there’s an extra class of tax,
‘Cause the fecking fecking feckers fecking charge to use the jacks,

Cheap flights, cheap flights, I think you must agree,
That only fecking gobshites think there’s flights for 50p,
(Feck, shite, feck, shite, feck, shite, arse)
(Feck, shite, shite, feck, feck, shite, arse)

Sad verse
Well finally we landed and tried to shuffle up the isle
But the steward sent us down to the back with never a hint of a smile
And as we heard his annoucement our hearts gave a teriblt thump
If you havent prepaid to use the steps you’ll have to feckin jump

Cheap flights, cheap flights your harking on to me
your and idiot if you think a fecking flight is 50p
