SW Flight of Broken Jeans

For those who need a good laugh ( and who doesn’t these days?!)

This is based on an article I saw today in Time magazine. It was in the Brief section ( how appropriate!) about what not to wear on an airplane.” ┬áSome employees girlfriends apparently were kicked off a flight for not following dress code by wearing leggings. It also mentioned a 2011 incident with Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day being kicked off for wearing inappropriate pants. The airline later apologized.

I wrote an email to the editors. Maybe it’ll get to Billie Joe ( and he’ll forgive my imperfect lyrical prosody:

Southwest Flight of broken jeans ( parody lyrics by Lana Peck)
He wore some sagging jeans
On a SouthWest flight to New Orleans
Oh yes the crew it seems
Thought those saggy jeans hung way too low

They told him politely
Sir we have a dress code policy
If you don’t have a belt
You’ll have to leave. Your jeans hang way to low

hang way too low
hang way too low
hang way too low
hang way too

Did they know he’s the singer of a famous band?
I mean do they know he’s the guy from Green Day?
Billie Joe, kicked off for a fashion faux pax
Cause his jeans hung to low

Did anybody hear
the conversation, what he had to say?
Come on, he’s Billie Joe.
Not the Edge or Bono. {rest} How could they not know?

He must’ve crossed the line
Thats fucked up the plane can’t leave on time
And there’s no posted sign
About this code so say how could he know?

how could he know?
how could he know?
how could he know?
how could he

You think he had another pair but put them through?
All those hits I can’t imagine that he’s all that broke
Billie Joe can’t afford a button for his fly!?
So his jeans hung too low

(Pull up your pants, Billie Joe )

He wore some sagging jeans
On a SouthWest flight to New Orleans
Oh yes the crew it seems
Thought those saggy jeans hung way too low

Does he think just because he’s really famous
Entitles him to fly first class bare butt naked
Billie Joe, kicked off for a fashion faux pax
Cause his jeans hung too low?

Pull up your pants
Hey Billie Joe
Pull up your pants
