HOLIDAY

i wanna take you away
we need a vacay
need a holiday
that's what they say
on the other side of the ocean
let's go to the other side of the ocean

let's get on a plane
we'll go to spain
but not to the plain
where it mainly rains
on the other side of the ocean
let's go to the other side of the ocean

and we can drink champagne
in champagne
and we can eat bologna
in bologna

we can go to london
we'll go to france
and we can buy some knickers
which are underpants
and if we're feeling fancy
we'll buy lingerie
we can do whatever we want
we're on holiday

[kazoo solo]

i'm starting to miss my bed
miss my home sweet home
and i'm sorry to say
but the pizza is way
better in new york
than it is in rome

we need a holiday from this vacation
need some rest and relaxation
from the other side of the ocean
let's go back to our side of the ocean

where we can look at pictures and reminisce
about eating figs at the acropolis
and it was hot as hell there
but the ouzo made it okay
and we'll sit at home till it gets boring
then we'll plan a trip to do more touring
and next summer
we'll have another
holiday
