"Catch-22" as written by Alecia B Moore and Linda Perry....
Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen and welcome to Pink Airlines.
We hope your flight is enjoyable
And our flight attendants are here to ensure
Your ride is as pleasant as possible.

Seat backs and tray tables must be in the upright and locked position during take-off and landing.

All carry-on luggage must be stored in an over-heard compartment or under the seat in front of you.

Waiting on t a ticket
Cause you're looking for the ride
You're feeling on top
Cause you're flying through the sky

You want to have your cake
And you want to eat it too
Everybody's always pointing fingers at you
You're damned if you do

You're damned if you don't
We're always doing all the things that we say we won't
Here we go
We're riding on a whim

Connecting with a rendezvous
Here we go
We're jumping of the wings
We're going round in circles

It's a Catch 22
Yes, we're rocking round in circles
It's a Catch 22

If you are seated in an emergency exit aisle and feel as though you are unable
Or unwilling to assist in case of an emergency,
Please notify a flight attendant immediately.

All electrical equipment, including cell phones, two-way pagers, portable CD players, laptops, etc. Should remain in the off position until the pilot notifies us that we are at a safe flying altitude of ten thousand feet.

Looking from the outside
You're always looking in
You think you fixed he problem
'Til it comes right back again

And life seems like a trap
You're trying to get out
You're searching for your cheese
Cause you feel like Mighty Mouse

You're damned if you don't
You're damned if you do
You've seen all the signs
But you haven't got a clue

Here we go
We're riding on a whim
Connecting with a rendezvous
Here we go

We're jumping of the wings
We're going round in circles
It's a Catch 22
Yes, we're flying round in circles

It's a Catch 22
Yes, we're rocking round in circles
It's a Catch 22
You are in for the ride of your life

We realize you have many choices and on behalf of Pink Airlines
We'd like to thank you for flying with us.

We hope you have a wonderful stay wherever your destination may be, and remember
Be careful when retrieving your items, as during the flight they may have shifted
And might fall on you or your neighbor's head and knock you the fuck out.

Here we go
We're riding on a whim
Connecting with a rendezvous
Here we go
We're jumping of the wings
We're going round in circles
It's a Catch 22
Yes, we're flying round in circles
It's a Catch 22
Yes, we're rocking round in circles
It's a Catch 22

    General CommentMakes me think of the Catch22-movie (1970). Loved that one, like these lyrics:
    "You`re damned if you do
    You`re damned if you don`t
    We`re always doing all the things
    That we say we won`t"
    'Cause sometimes doing something is just as bad as doing something else or nothing - having no choice, 'cause both options are likewise unatractive. So which one do you choose then?
