   Bm                               G
I call you from my car to say I'll be there in a while
    D                                 A                     Asus2
A short plane ride and I will get to see your pretty smile
         Bm                      G
There's nothing on the radio, I fiddle with the dial
      D                               A                 Asus2
And then I see a sign; the airport's just another mile

    Bm                G              D              A
I check my bags and think about how much I hate to fly
    Bm           G         D               A
And as I near security, I almost start to cry...

         D               G            A                Asus2
I got three balloons of coke in an uncomfortable place

I'm sweating and I'm nervous, and I need a little air

Crowded up in there...

I dread the thought of having to unload this merchandise

"Relax", I think, "It's not so bad; it might feel kind of nice"

First of all, great tab! But there is some minor mistakes in the lyrics. I believe this is more correct :)

I call you from my car to say I'll be there in a while
A short plane ride and I will get to see your pretty smile
Nothing on the radio, I fiddle with the dial
And then I see a sign; the airport's just another mile

I check my bags and think about how much I hate to fly
And as I near security, I almost start to cry...

Well, I hope the Law Enforcement Agents can't tell from my face
I got three balloons of coke in an uncomfortable place
I'm sweating and I'm nervous, and I need a little air
'Cause with four balloons of heroin, it's getting crowded up in there...
Crowded up in there...

My mind is all a-jumble and my blood is cold as ice
I dread the thought of having to unload this merchandise
"Relax", I say, "It's not so bad; it might feel kind of nice"
"Besides, who hasn't had a finger up there once or twice?"

I must remember, don't leave any drugs inside the host
I did that once and a girl who tossed my salad overdosed

Well, I say a little prayer, "Hail Maria Full of Grace!"
I got three balloons of coke in an uncomfortable place
I'm sweating and I'm nervous, and I need a little air
And I swear I’m farting lines of blow into my underwear...
From the darriere...

I was a little eager when I loaded up my stash
Five balloons of ecstasy and six balloons of hash
Eight balloons of LSD, nine of sexy mild
A box of Chinese Fireworks, Guatemalan child...

I made it to the gate now, and my joy I can't contain
I board the aircraft, take my seat in the cockpit of the plane...

As I taxi down the runway, I get a smile on my face
I got three balloons of coke in an uncomfortable place
"Flight Crew, prepare for take-off as I lift us into air"
And by the way, does anyone want to buy a Guatemalan child... from my darriere?

I want to post or [tab]
