(With apologies to Alan Jay Lerner)

Will China deign to give us back our plane?
We know they've got it.
Will China deign to give us back our plane?
For sure, they've got it.
It goes against our grain
To explain. It's a pain.
And yet they still retain
Our plane. Our plane!
Will China deign to give us back our plane?
Will China deign to give us back our plane?
What more can they obtain
That's germane from our plane?
In vain do we complain.
It's plain insane!
Their government is truly inhumane,
So should we bomb them into beef chow mein?
