From the recording The Tarmac in Dubai

Lyrics

The Tarmac in Dubai


And now,
Our afternoon must end
I pass you to my friend
He’s charged to guarantee
Your safe arrival

I leave you in his care
He will not touch one hair
If only to ensure
His own survival

CHORUS:
You’re off to dwell
In a distant foreign land
I know quite well
This isn’t what you planned

To tell the truth
You won’t believe your eyes
the moment you set foot
On the tarmac in Dubai

Relax
Pretend you’re in a play
So glitter and be gay
Some like it just that way
Don’t fight it

Now.,
As for your mom and dad
At first, they’ll be quite sad
But then, as time goes by, forget you

CHORUS:
You’re off to dwell
In a distant foreign land
I know quite well
This isn’t what you planned

To tell the truth
You won’t believe your eyes
the moment you set foot
On the tarmac in Dubai

You’re off to dwell
In a distant foreign land
And truth to tell
It went off just as planned

Wish I could see
Those tears flow from your eyes
the moment you set foot
On the tarmac in Dubai

Boo hoo hoo
Boo hoo hoo
Boo hoo hoo
