Drivin' in the south of France
And I'm blastin' Abba
Moroccan guy askin me
A sensual question
Lookin' at the beach
It's a shame
That it's a-rainin'
I wish I could take a swim
Instead I'm stuck in a cab with a stranger
Drank last night and I feel like shit

I hate every book I've ever read
Take back the words I never said
I need somewhere to rest my head
I'm lookin' for a big old, big old med

Two years later I'm back in the same town
This time I brought my girlfriend
We fought at the beach and slept at a ??
We told each other it was the end
All the girls on the beach all topless and tan
Real pretty bodies what would they taste like, man
I wish I was different
More like Duvall (?)
But every time I try I realize I can't

I hear a party and ??
I can hear all of them ??
Ever wait four years ??
I'm just gonna wait for the next day

Next day I wake up
I drink coffee
And I go for a walk around town
Buy some drugs off a street man
Go back hotel
Lie back down
I'm thinkin' there's a gas leak in my room
I'm on drugs
I'm freakin' out
Do I call the ?? and tell him
Or do I just go back to sleep

I hate every book I've ever read
Take back the words you never said
I need somewhere to rest my head
I'm lookin' for a big old, big old med

    Lyric CorrectionA few corrections:

    "I'm lookin' for a big old, big old bed"

    "I hear a party in room 13
    I can hear all of them begin to scream"

    "Do I call the deskman and tell him
    Or do I just go back to sleep"

    Lyric CorrectionDrivin' in the south of France
    And I'm blastin' Abba
    Moroccan guy askin me
    A sexual question
    Lookin' at the beach
    It's a shame
    That it's a-rainin'
    I wish I could take a swim
    Instead I'm stuck in a cab with a stranger
    Drank last night and I feel like shit

    I hate every book I've ever read
    Take back the words I never said
    I need somewhere to rest my head
    I'm lookin' for a big old, big old med

    Two years later I'm back in the same town
    This time I brought my girlfriend
    We fought at the beach and slapped at a fish
    We told each other it was the end
    All the girls on the beach all topless and tan
    Real pretty bodies but with faces like men
    I wish it was different
    More like before
    But every time I try I realize I can't

    I hear all the partyin', from the beach
    I can hear all of them
    People think there's a wait for the end to the fucked up drape
    I'm just gonna wait for the next med

    Next day I wake up
    I drink coffee
    And I go for a walk around town
    Buy some drugs off a street man
    Go back to hotel
    Lie back down
    Start thinkin' there's a gas leak in my room
    I'm on drugs
    So I'm freakin' out
    Do I call the deskman and tell him
    Or do I just go back to sleep

    I hate every book I've ever read
    Take back the words you never said
    I need somewhere to rest my head
    I'm lookin' for a big old, big old med
