The Lyrics

Dis is a song about a holidaay. pretty simple stuff
Verse 1:
I'm into long vacations, seven trips to the local mall
Nothin' beats that great sensation, when u enter the hotel hall
(I was) Watchin a derby of demolition, i got a call, gave me such a fright
Some guy said that i had won a ticket, for 12 days and 11 nights

i asked were i was goin, he said 'u can choose the place yourself'
i jumped around so much i ran into my bookshelf
and i think i hurt myself

Long thin tall palm trees
Stayin in Costa Rica
I'll go on shopping sprees
(While I'm) Stayin in Costa Rica
I'll see some cool monkeys
who compared to me, are so much weaker
Hope I don't catch a disease
Stayin in Costa Rica
Stayin in Costa Rica
Stayin in Costa Rica

Verse 2:
Stopover in New York City, this is really makin me mad
There's a Russian sitting right next 2 me, ends ev'ry sentence with 'eh, comrade?'

When i got there i saw a guy just chewing on a bone
I thought he was insane, but a tourist said "When in Rome"
He really should be in a 'home'


It's time to go but i really really don't wanna leave
But at least i'll actually be back in time for Christmas Eve
Ans I'll see my best mate Steve
