"The Holiday Song" as written by and Charles Thompson....
Well sit right down my wicked son
And let me tell you a story
About the boy who fell from glory
And how he was a wicked son

This ain't no holiday
But it always turn out this way
Here I am, with my hand

He took his sister from his head
And then painted her on the sheets
And then rolled her up in grass and trees
And they kissed till they were dead

This ain't no holiday
But it always turns out this way
Here I am, with my hand

Well sit right down my evil son
And let me tell you a story
About the boy who fell from glory
And how he was a wicked son

This ain't no holiday, oh no
But it always turns out this way
Here I am, with my hand

This ain't no holiday
But it always turns out this way
Here I am, with my hand

    General Comment"Sister" doesn't have to mean his actual sister. Some people use sister in the some way "brother" is used. So, "sister" could just mean "girl". Although, knowing what Frank Black's like lyrically, he probably is talking about his sister.

    To me "He took his sister from his head/And then painted her on the sheets/And then rolled her up in grass and trees/And they kissed 'till they were dead" means that he was imagining he was having sex with a girl in a grassy area - maybe a tropical forest? That's what I imagine - until they couldn't continue, and he ejaculated all over his sheets.
