I wrote this on a bumpy flight in to Chicago. I had a glass of plane wine and REGRET WAS MY TEACHER.


Hold on, ye weary bladder Cm F
Until the plane shall land Cm G
For the fasten seatbelt sign is lit Cm F
And the lavatory is banned Cm G Cm

The coffee and the juice were free
But now I feel their cost
Hope the airport bathroom line's not long
Lest my control be lost

Hold on, ye weary bladder
Until the plane shall land
We all must sit while the sign is lit
And the lavatory is banned

I meant to pee much earlier, but -
We met with turbulent air
The sign flashed on and my chance was gone
And I cursed: "That's SO not fair."

Hold fast! Ye weary bladder -
For no diaper is at hand
'Til the gate's in sight, clench your sphincter tight -
Until the plane shall land


from Weirdness from 2014, track released June 14, 2014
