"Holiday on the Moon" as written by Daniel Gaston Ash, Kevin Haskins and David Jay....
You can't get a suntan on the moon!
(They say)
You can't get a suntan on the moon!

Thank you Mr. President,
For my holiday Sir,
(Thank you Sir...)
Thank you Mr. President,
For my holiday Sir,
I can't really say, that I wish you were here,
But thank you all the same, Sir...

I can't really say, that I wish you were here,
But thank you all the same, Sir,

Ahhhh, such a wonderful time, (x6)

    My OpinionI'm pretty sure you absolutely can get a suntan on the moon. Isn't that why the helmet visors are ultra-reflective?

    My InterpretationIt makes me think of when people don't like you where you work, or you're not good, they'll "promote" you to somewhere else just to get rid of you. Here's a free trip to the moon. On us. Go as soon as possible. I insist. Stay as long as you like.

    General CommentThis is my first attempt at putting lyrics up for a song, so I hope they're mostly right. If not, try to help me fix them, please! :)

    General CommentI think he's expressing one of my greater desires.

    You can't change people and their ignorance. So lets just get away from them, somewhere they were they can't bother us.
    Like the moon.

    -or-

    Possibly a satire. Maybe thanking the pres. for destroying the Earth so the only place left is the moon

    Then again it's Maynard, so only Maynard knows
