Southwest Airlines Community

Singing Along from BNA to NYC

Not applicable

If you take a flight from Music City you’ll most likely have a gate full of guitars and extremely talented Customers.   Add a fun-LUVing and award-winning songwriter and you’ve got yourself a party! 

It made a recipe for success as Southwest celebrated new nonstop service from Nashville to the New York City area.  Karen Staley and our Customers composed a toe-tappin’ tune between the time the flight to Newark boarded and the flight to LaGuardia boarded (just a half-hour later!).  Now, that’s efficient songwriting! 

You could sit here and listen to me wax poetic about the experience—but why do that when you can watch it yourself?  Watch the video and sing along.  I’ve posted the lyrics below:

Southwest, we’re the airline that rocks. 
To New York, we’ve got four new nonstops,
And Newark, we go there twice a day,
Even if it’s super delayed.

Jersey, hey forget about it,
Either place, you’ll probably see a hit.
The Big Apple, Central Park, and Times Square,
Let our crazy crew take you there!

It’s fun to fly with SWA, 
It’s fun to fly with SWA!
Let’s go to NYC,
And then New Jersey,
And remember, your bags fly free!

Peanuts, that’s what you’ll pay for this flight,
From Nashville to the Broadway lights.
The cowboy, he’s naked I hear,
Spot Snooki at the Jersey pier.

Knicks play at the MSG,
Derek Jeter and the New York Yankees,
Eloise at the Plaza Hotel,
Donald Trump thinks it’s really swell!

It’s fun to fly with SWA, 
It’s fun to fly with SWA!
Let’s go to NYC,
And then New Jersey,
And remember your bags fly free!
It’s fun to fly with SWA!
