"Big Jet Plane" as written by and Julia Stone Angus Stone....
She said "hello mister, please to meet ya"
I wanna hold her, I wanna kiss her
She smelled of daisies, smelled of daisies
She drive me crazy, drive me crazy

Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Hey hey
Hey hey

Be my lover, my lady river
Can I take ya, take ya higher

Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Hey hey
Hey hey

Gonna hold ya, gonna kiss ya in my arms
Gonna take ya away from harm
Gonna hold ya, gonna kiss ya in my arms
Gonna take ya away from harm

Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane
Hey hey
Hey hey

    General Commentwell his big jet plane, is just a metaphor for his really big cock, i could be very wrong, but i also could be very right, i think.
    Be my lover, my lady river(she's wet)
    can i take ya, take ya higher?!?!?
    It means (to me) that he has a really big cock, and he is gonna have great sex with this beautiful chick that he just met...

    General CommentI believe it's more to do with meeting someone for the first time - But not as in an introductory sense - More like when your going about your every day routine and someone truly catches your attention and the world around you seems to stop for a brief moment but you realise your obvious and try to pretend to be normal and in-turn miss an opportunity to find out if the attraction is real - It's when that person can bend your mind for days - When the slightest of sensations such as the smell of a perfume can be distinctively be embedded in your mind for weeks.

    As expressed in the opening line:

    "She said 'hello mister, please to meet ya'; I wanna hold her, I wanna kiss her; She smelled of daisies, smelled of daisies; She drive me crazy, drive me crazy"

    It also seems to create the feeling that this infatuation is towards someone quite lower in social class or society than the... The rest of the song in my eyes continues to play that tune and goes on to wishing the mind could catch up to you quicker in those situations and act on them, but instead life leaves you wondering how it could have played out.

    "Be my lover, my lady river; Can I take ya, take ya higher"
    "Gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane........."
    "Gonna hold ya, gonna kiss ya in my arms; Gonna take ya away from harm"

    General Commenti better not think about dicks and sex when i listen to this song now. sure, that could be one interpretation of it, but it seems to me that it means more than that.

    "gonna take ya away from harm." some guy who banged a girl he just met probably wouldn't think such a sentimental thought.
    "i wanna hold her, i wanna kiss her." this line could extend to sex, but on the surface it doesn't. he just wants to be with her.

    unfortunately, it looks like pretty much everything else in the song can go either towards sex or whatever a more sweeter meaning to the song is. i'll be pissed if all i think about this song now when i listen to it has to do with sex.

    Song MeaningThe song is about a girl he met at a riverthat he liked.
    "Be my lover, my lady river"
    But he was on tour so had to leave her behind
    He ended up righting this song for her.
    So no samzters it is NOT about sex.
    They even say it's about a girl when he's interviewed. See for yourselves,
    youtube.com/…
    Any way that's the meaning of big jet plane.

    My InterpretationI feel like the line
    "hello mister,
    pleased to meet ya"
    I want to hold her,
    I want to kiss her."
    Is him speaking to her father in the sense of asking if he can ask her to marry her.

    Then the line;
    "Be my lover,
    My lady river
    But can i take ya,
    Take ya higher."
    Is him asking her then the rest is him telling her how he's going to take her to bigger and better places and that he's going to do for her.
    BUT that's just what come into my mind when I listen to it.
