Up on the airplane
Nearer my god to thee
I start making a deal
Inspired by gravity
If I did wrong I won't do it again
'Cause I can be sweet and good and nice
And if I had enemies their friends
I'll hold to my life with the grip of a vice

And I'm up on the airplane
Nearer my god to thee
I start making a deal
Inspired by gravity

That little spot on the ground is my hometown
