bye bye bmibaby ... all my bags are packed I'm ready to go

So many songs come to mind with the news that BMI Baby is to close its base and cease flying in and out of Belfast from 11 June, and to ground its fleet completely after 10 September (unless a buyer can be found).

If you hate me after what I say
Can't put it off any longer
I just gotta tell you anyway

Bye Bye B M I Baby Goodbye
(Bye, baby, baby, bye, bye, ahh.)
B M I Baby don't make me cry
(Bye, baby, baby, bye, bye.)

Launched in early 2002, 420,000 passengers went through George Best Belfast City Airport last year on bmibaby. They never did fix their online check in process that would allocate very young children in a different row to their parents. But Tiny - bmibaby's baby logo - will be backing his bags for the last time soon.

All my bags are packed I'm ready to go
I'm standin' here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin' it's early morn
The taxi's waitin' he's blowin' his horn
Already I'm so lonesome I could die

There's so many times I've let you down
So many times I've played around
I tell you now, they don't mean a thing
Every place I go, I'll think of you
Every song I sing, I'll sing for you
When I come back, I'll bring your wedding ring

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time let me kiss you
Close your eyes I'll be on my way
Dream about the days to come
When I won't have to leave alone
About the times, I won't have to say

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh baby, I hate to go
