"Holiday In Spain" as written by Peter Slager and Adam Frederic Duritz....
Got no place to go
But there's a girl waiting for me down in Mexico
She got a bottle of tequila, a bottle of gin
And if I bring a little music I could fit right in

We got airplane rides
We got California drowning out the window side
We've got big black cars
And we got stories how we slept with all the
Movie stars

I may take a holiday in Spain
Leave my wings behind me
Drink my worries down the drain
And fly away to somewhere new

Hop on my choo-choo
I'll be your engine driver in a bunny suit
If you dress me up in pink and white
We may be just a little fuzzy 'bout it later tonight

She's my angel
She's a little better than the one that used to be with me
Cause she liked to scream at me
Man, it's a miracle that she's not living up in a tree

I may take a holiday in Spain
Leave my wings behind me
Drive this little girl insane
And fly away to someone new

Everybody's gone
They left the television screaming that the radio's on
Someone stole my shoes
But there's a couple of bananas
And a bottle of booze

Oh well, happy new year's baby!
We could probably fix it if we clean it up all day
Or we could simply pack our bags
And catch a plane to Barcelona 'cause this city's a drag

I may take a holiday in Spain
Leave my wings behind me
Flush my worries down the drain
And fly away to somewhere new

Take a holiday in Spain
Leave my wings behind me
Drive this little girl insane
Fly away to someone new
Fly away to someone new
Fly away to someone new

    General CommentI immeadiatly thought this was a depressing song, but it has transformed itself in my mind to a laid back, emotionless song. It reminds me of times when everything in your life is ok. Nothing exceptional, nothing heartbreaking, just fine. It is an ordinary day put to beautiful music. One of my favorites on the CD, if not #1.

    General CommentHeard this song live 10-13-02 in Pittsburgh... it was great... and before he sang the song he explained it in great detail...... what i can remeber about what he said about it is he was looking through his lyric book one day and came across some old lyrics about drinking and he said it really sucked so he sat there and rearraged and changed some of it and this is what it turned into... he said its about waking up one day from a hang over and you just feel like shit....

    durning the encore he also talked about everyone getting off their fat asses and vote in Nov...

    great show... couldnt believe all the oldies he played
    great set list page

    General CommentI totally agree with countmycrows, this is one of the best songs from the hard candy album! I love the what it starts slow, kinda "hangover-slow", and then breaks out into a harmonic and dreaming melody. And the when the drums comes in...I almost start to shiver! Probably the most optimistic and happiest song produced by CC. And best.

    General Commenti don't really see it as optimistic or happy - it just sums up life really. kinda directionless we're all gonna die so lets all get pissed - obviously it doesn't have that negetive attitude, but i think this song just kinda sums up life - or what we feel about life sometimes
