Forgotten Songs take some holiday























Forgotten Songs won't have new posts over the next 15 days (except if I'm in situation to add one but I don't think I will). I take some time off this "dirty old town, I have to leave the city cos it really brought me down" (lyrics of the Ray Davies "Holiday" song you can hear and watch below). I think I'll be back except if a great big bear eats me (poor creature, not the best sustenance for such a wonderful animal) cos' I'm going in the Pyrénées (yes dear US visitors, the one mountain cyclists climb so quickly that it's not a surprise they are caught stuffed with more chemistry than Keith Richards' blood has ever seen in his whole life). But you don't care and you're right. I fucking don't exist for you, I'm only the blogging postman and it's perfect this way cos' I'm not really much more it's true.

 

Holiday, Oh what a lovely day today, I'm oh so glad they sent me away, To have a little holiday today, holiday. Holiday, And I'm just standing on the end of a pier, Hoping and dreaming you were here, To share my little holiday. Lookin' in the sky for a gap in the clouds, Sometimes I think that sun ain't never coming out, But I'd rather be here than in that dirty old town, I had to leave the city cos it really brought me down. Oh holiday, oh what a lovely day today, I think I'll get down on my little ol' knees and pray, thank you Lord, Thank heaven for this holiday today, holiday. I'm leaving insecurity behind me, The environmental pressures got me down, I don't need no sedatives to pull me round, I don't need no sleeping pills to help me sleep sound. Oh holiday, Oh what a lovely day today, I think I'll get down on my little ol' knees and pray, That's what I'll do, Thank heaven for this holiday. Lying on the beach with my back burned rare, The salt gets in my blisters and the sand gets in my hair, And the sea's an open sewer, But I really couldn't care, I'm breathing through my mouth so I don't have to sniff the air. Oh holiday, Oh what a lovely day today, I'm so glad they sent me away, To have a little holiday.
