Well I guess I needed a miracle
If I was gonna make my flight
I had to get to gate C13
And it was still way out of site
But something in my carry on bag
Ticked off the x-ray machine
'Cause then an angel straight from heaven
Asked me to step behind the screen.
When I felt her wand sweep over me
You know I never felt so clean

Girl you won't find my name on your list
Honey you know I ain't no terrorist
Confiscate my shoes - my cell phone
You know I love - love - love you
Security Joan

I hung out at the Starbuck's
'Til just around boarding time
Then I stolled on back to the checkpoint
With just one thing on my mind
She flashed that crooked smile and said
Hon, I believe you you missed your flight
I said there's been a minor change of plan
And I'll be stayin' for one more night
I could tell from the way she looked at me
Everything was going to be alright

Girl you won't find my name on your list
Honey you know I ain't no terrorist
Confiscate my shoes - my cell phone
You know I love - love - love you
Security Joan
(Search me now!)

    General CommentOf course self explantory. So clever, leave it to Fagen to find romance in the bag check line at the airport. Gotta love his sense of humor. Killer chorus.
