Lyrics (The numbers are the ones from the note on top of the page)

      1. [Instrumental]
      2. Airplane, airplane, put me to sleep again. Take me away, off to a
         dream, and then I'll fly, so high across the sky, and wake up in a
         place where mistakes from my past are erased.
      3. Don't drop me. Don't stop me. Just hold me, so cozy.
      4. Airplane, airplane, don't you go down today. Take me away, off to a
         better place. You know, just where I'd like to go. Please get me
         there on time; don't delay me from losing my mind.
      5. Don't drop me. Don't stop me. Just hold me.
      6. Airplane, airplane, don't you go down today. Take me away, off to a
         better place. You know, just where I'd like to go. Please get me
         there real soon; I've important things that I must do.

I'm a new guy, so I don't know how to edit stuff wants its approved (if there is a way). So I'll just post this as a comment. A few corrections in chorus B:
-During the A7 and D7 measures, you should slide between the notes.
-In the last measure with notes, during that chorus, you don't need to switch fingerings from the last strum (instead of the "0,14,13" fingering I put, it should be "11,10,8").
