"Holiday In The Sun" as written by and Fletcher Dragge Byron Mcmackin....
How dose it feel to be one of those with your backs against the wall
The wrong way down a one way street and your headed for a fall
You got no hope and no way to go and there's no one to call a friend
Your only prayer is that someone cares enough to helping hand

There no way your not gonna see it
You better you better believe it
Lets leave this fun
It a holiday in the sun

A life so serene for you not me
Yeah we got it all, no problems my friend
We're oblivious because it us not them
Everyday in the USA its a life of luxury

Are we so blind not to satisfy to your each and every need
And we don't care about the world out there we just go about out our lives
So self absorbed we can just ignore the hate outside out eyes
There no way your not gonna see it

You better you better believe it
Lets leave this fun
It a holiday in the sun
A life so serene for you not me

Yeah we got it all, no problems my friend
We're oblivious because it us not them
Isn't it nice when you have everything you need
Just before you close your eyes

It'd nice for you and me nice for you and me
Lets leave this fun
It a holiday in the sun
A life so serene for you not me

Yeah we got it all, no problems my friend
We're oblivious because it us not them

    General CommentI'm really surprised no one commented on this song. What I draw from it is that we all get so wrapped up in our own problems and aspirations that we forget that the world doesn't revolve around us. The song makes a reference to the USA because we as a country are a perfect example although this goes on world-wide. Ignorance is bliss, and when all we see is our own well-being, we are happy.

    General CommentIt's hard to take this song seriously when there poverty is a huge problem in the US. In this song they make it seem like everyone in the US is well off and too rich to care when in fact a lot of Americans have their financial problems to worry about

    General CommentDougbranches:

    To me, the song doesn't specifically apply to Americans' views of the rest of the world. It also includes content Americans who don't think about the rest of their country. The song points out that when you have everything you need, you forget about the rest of the world...including the people around you who may not be so well off.

    General CommentIt's about the elite having a great life, and it's like a holiday in the sun. But they don't realize the rest of the world does have problems.
