You know I need a little break to get away for a holiday
So I can see the sun
'Cos in The Sun they say it’s fun
If you get some

Well I could take a train or a boat or an aeroplane
Or I could steal a car
'Cos in a car you can go far
It just depends what kinda guy you are
What kinda guy you are

I met a funny-looking girl on a crowded beach in Spain
Her name was Avaline
She said she came to Spain
To have a good time

But she was with her mum who had a face like a nun in pain
She said her name was Dot
She didn't half talk a lot
I couldn't tell if she was mad or not
Mad or not

But don't you know
I should have stayed in England
On my polluted beach
With all my special friends

And don't you know
I should have stayed in England
With my big house
And my big car
And all my friends there at the bar

Well I need a little break to get away for a holiday
So I can see the sun
'Cos in The Sun they say it’s fun
If you get some

Well I could take a train or a boat or an aeroplane
Or I could steal a car
'Cos in a car you can go far
It just depends what kinda guy you are
What kinda guy you are x2

    General CommentLiam&Noel say... Bonehead's Bank Holiday- "Well, you know how The Beatles used to like get Ringo to sing the odd tune here and there? Well, he´s (Bonehead) our Ringo isn´t he, you see? And he´s ugly as sin, you know what I mean? Completely untalented and the luckiest man in rock so we thought we´d write him a song, you know what I mean? Bonehead´s Bank Holiday - It´s about nicking cars and going to Spain and meeting girls who´s mothers are nuns."

    General CommentDefinetely a summer song. Great chord progression of sevenths. It's only on the vinyl of Whats The Story, I'm sorry. Great lyrics - so relaxing, you feel stoned! If there ever was a lyric that Noel showed how much he loved England, it would be here. Like Don Logan of Sexy Beast - he is a true Brit!

    General Commenti got this song on a tape given away with melody maker newspaper back in 1995 or 96 and its been a favourite of mine since. love the lyrics saying
    But don't you know
    I should have stayed in England
    On my polluted beach
    With all my special friends
    its meaning is basically as much as the sunshine holiday is great, England is where there hearts are, where they know whats what and whos who. the humour in the lyrics is very typically british, comedy nuns and self efacing words. it does put me in a good mood to listen to this song.
