"Holiday" as written by Robin Hugh Gibb and Barry Alan Gibb....
Let's go away for a while
You and I
To a strange and distant land
Where they speak no word of truth
But we don't understand anyway

Holiday
Far away, to stay
On a Holiday, far away
Let's go today
In a heartbeat!
Heartbeat, heartbeat

Don't bother to pack your bags
Or your map
We won't need them where we're goin'
We're goin' where the wind is blowin'
Not knowin' where we're gonna stay

Holiday
Far away, to stay
On a Holiday, far away
Let's go today
In a heartbeat!
Heartbeat, heartbeat

We will write a postcard
To our friends and family
In free verse
On the road with Kerouac
Sheltered in Bivouac
On this road we'll never die...

Let's go away for a while
You and I
To a strange and distant land
Where they speak no word of truth
But we don't understand anyway

Holiday
Far away, to stay
On a Holiday, far away
Let's go today
In a heartbeat!
Heartbeat, heartbeat

    General Commenti can't believe no one has picked up on this. the song is full of jack kerouac puns. for those who don't know kerouac is a famous writer often referred to as a "beat neck" generation leader. "on the road" is a book that he wrote and a "bivouac" (they wrote it wrong) is a temporary shelter. "heartbeat" is a movie about him. i'm sure there are more, but that's all i could thnk of. smooth out on the eazy-e tip!

    General CommentI love this song, one of the best on Blue (I love every single song on that cd though) It's just about getting away for a while and just going where the road takes ya. Great song!

    General CommentThis song isn't about the words. It's about expressing a fleeting and instantaneous feeling of excitement that you get when you, for instance, just get with a new girl. You feel like everything you do will be the funnest activity ever engaged in and you will always have a great time no matter what you're doing, as long as you're with each other. This song is so precious because it's so hard to recreate that feeling and you only get to feel it a precious few times in your life. Yeah, you can hop from woman to woman after the feeling dies down, but it keeps getting harder to feel it at all after you become jaded and know that it will never last. To get the feeling at all you have to find room in your heart to believe that it will last and this relationship is different. Thanks Weezer.

    General CommentRivers said about Holiday and In the Garage: "Written in a sudden burst of confidence and optimism right after we got a record deal. Those positive emotions have since dissipated - along with our cash advances - but I still like the songs."

    General CommentThis is obviously about Rivers wanting to spend time w/ his chick. Somewhere where they could be alone and have fun.
