Vampire Weekend ‘Holiday’

Holiday, oh, a holiday
And the best one of the year
Dozing off underneath my sheets
While I cover both my ears

[Chorus] But if I wait for a holiday
Could it stop my fears?
To go away on a summer’s day
Never seemed so clear

[Verse 2] Holiday, still so far away
A republic on the beach
I can’t forget just how bad it gets
When I’m counting on my teeth

[Chorus] But if I wait for a holiday
Could it stop my fears?
To go away on a summer’s day
Never seemed so clear

[Bridge] A vegetarian since the invasion
She’d never seen the word ‘bombs’
She’d never seen the word ‘bombs’
Blown up to 96-point Futura
She’d never seen an AK
In a yellowy Day-Glo display
A T-shirt so lovely, it turned all the history books grey

[Verse 3] I got wheels, I got Cutter spray
And a healthy sense of worth
Half of me is the gasoline
But the other half’s the surf

[Chorus] But if I wait for a holiday
Could it stop my fears?
To go away on a summer’s day
Never seemed so clear
