Just an airport conversation

I'm going to be in an airport for most of today, so please pull out your Best of Lou Reed and give a listen to New York Telephone Conversation before reading the rest.

Before you start, I really wish you could see the absolute bounty of self-important assholes that populate this tiny little airport.


I was resting, patiently waiting
when I heard your phone
Beyonce, South Park, Star Trek ringtones
make me want to groan.

Did you hear how important I am
I do business all the time
Just an airport conversation
rattling in my head

Oh, oh, my, and where shall we fly
Oh, oh, my, please fuck off and die.

Just an airport conversation
blabber among us plebs
I have millions, maybe billions
I commit white collar crime

I’m so special listen to me
here in the rows of chairs
Hirings, firings, mergers, breakups
no one really cares

Oh, how sad it is that you are so loud.
Oh, how sad it is for many in this crowd

I am begging, yes I’m begging
you in the ill-fitting suit
I will snap and probably kill you
if you don’t shut the fuck up!

If you don't shut the fuck up!
