Boycotting British Airways

Boycotting British Airways
By Sonala Olumhense

(Sing to the tune of "Blowing In The Wind")

What will you do when Nigerians hear

You bought British Airways tickets?

What will you say when people see you

At BA checking-in?

What will you do when you know we saw you

Boarding a British Airways flight?

What will you do when Nigerians hear

You really breached the boycott?

The answer, my friend, is crying in the wind

The answer is weeping in the wind

What will you say when Nigerians see you

Coming off a BA plane?

When what will you do when our friends ask you:

"You didn't, did you?"

What will you do when the cart porter

Tells you to keep your tip?

What will you do when the street beggar

Throws your money back to you?

The answer, dear friend, is swirling in the wind

The answer is smelling in the wind

What will you say when Immigration

Claps for you but won't say why?

What will you do when the Customs boss

Says: "Open up everything!"

What will you say when the policeman

Asks: "Na where your baggage tags, I beg?"

What will you say when the area boys

Say they already know about you?

The answer, my friend, is teasing in the wind

The answer is freezing in the wind.

What will you do when your own boyfriend

Refuses to meet you at BA?

What will you say when your own driver

Refuses to touch your luggage?

What will you do when your very own cook

Says you must be full from the flight?

What will you do when your very own blood

Says Bro, Who really are you?

What will you do when the manager

Says hotel is overbooked

The answer, my friend, is cooking in the wind

The answer is baking in the wind

What will you do when your dad calls you

Says "Son d'you know your History?"

What will you say when your mother cries

And tells you to remain in the house?

What will you do when your biz partner

Swears he advised you about BA?

What will you swear when the restaurateur

Recognizes you from television?

The answer my friend, is screaming in the wind

The answer is steaming in the wind

What will you say do when complete strangers

Call you "BA" on the street?

What will you do when your very own friends

Refuse to call you on the phone?

What will you do when your own family

Won't even accept your calls?

What do you do when each time the phone rings

Its BA offering you a free flight?

The answer, my friend, never...never BA

The BA boycott is May 15...

The BA boycott is May 15...

The BA boycott is May 15...
