Make text look like it's written on the ground?

Hi all, I'm having trouble with this effect...I've got a clip looking out the window of a plane as it's taxiing along on the ground. I want to make it look like there's text written on the ground that the plane taxis past. I've got the motion tracker working fine and applied it to a null, but when I add a text layer and parent it to a null, it doesn't look right at all. It just wobbles and moves around a bit, but doesn't look like it's stuck to the ground. Any ideas? Thanks!

Seems like the track is a little shaky; close, but not perfect. This causes the wobbly text movement. Maybe try stabilizing and precomposing your footage before tracking. You can also try using the 3D camera tracker instead of motion tracking.
