Mistaken Song Lyrics: ‘Drunk on a Plane’ by Dierks Bentley

Actual lyrics:

Buyin’ drinks for everybody
But the pilot, it’s a party

What I thought:

Buyin’ drinks for everybody
Fuck the pilot, it’s a party

 

Well shit.  I interpreted it as the pilot coming out of the cockpit after reaching cruising altitude saying, “Hey, what’s going on back here?”

And everybody who is getting loaded in the cabin being like, “Hey, fuck you, dad, why don’t you get back in there and fly the plane and leave us the hell alone?”

I guess it makes more sense that he wasn’t buying the pilot drinks because he had to fly the plane to Cancun.
