"middle eastern holiday" as written by and Richard Archer....
I've seen you darling, seen you hanging round town
You in a short skirt, shining eyes of deep brown
You had a dirty look, you caught me on your hook
Turn up the thermostat, I want to see you sweat
Oh yeah, girl, you've got something I like

I walked right over, said hi, how ya doin'?
You smiled at me and girl you tore right through me
I said come on let's dance, we've got to take our chance
You whispered in my ear, you want to get out of here

Can you feel it? Rocking the city
Ah yeah, straight out of nowhere-ness
Like a fist, can't resist you, oh no
I tell you something

You know I love ya, just want to touch ya
Stand up, knock me right off my feet
Hard to beat
Hard to beat
Hard to beat

Let's spend the night, spend the night together
Heart beating so fast, as you take my shirt off
This girl I saw round town, well now she's going down
Stuck on a losing streak, I think you've turned it round

Oh yeah, girl, you've got something I like

Read all about it, have you heard the latest?
Boy in a band, Babe actress
But baby, you and me, we came up from the street
No time to hesitate, we've got to push our weight

Can you feel it? Rocking the city
Ah yeah, straight out of nowhereness
Like a fist, can't resist you, oh no
I tell you something

You know I love ya, just want to touch ya
Stand up, knock me right off my feet
Hard to beat
Hard to beat
Hard to beat

Goodness
No, I've never known a night like this
Can't believe it, you're so hard to beat
Hard to beat

Drive me crazy, my beautiful baby
Let's spend the whole day right here together

You know I love ya, just want to touch ya
Stand up, knock me right off my feet
Hard to beat
Hard to beat
Hard to beat

Oh yeah, girl, you've got something I like
Oh yeah, girl, you've got something I like

    General CommentIts about the experience of a soldier (probably in Iraq), ironically described as a 'middle eastern holiday'

    General CommentI agree with you cityrockers. It's definitely about the war on Iraq, which hard-fi undoubtedly disagree with. They're having a pop at the government for joining it as well.
    A great use of irony that somewhat resembles Joe Strummer's and Paul Weller's witty styles.

    General CommentLyrically it is quite Jam-esque - great song that deals with the war and the governments attitude to it.
