The Lyrics

Next time someone suggests a place you could travel to, research it for crying out loud!
I am a traveller
Fill my room with souvenirs from 'cross the world
And you try to convince me to go
Along with you to this 'cool place'
Now we're here, now can I go?

This place ain't great, it's a first-class sh!thole!
This place ain't great, it's a first-class sh!thole!
This place ain't great, it's a first-class sh!thole!
Your friend may have said it rocked but I'm not impressed

I'm a travel man
And the things I've seen, are much better than this
Much better than this
You're so naive, man
Why did you drag me, along for the whole trip?
You know this is a tip

I wrote the journal on crappy spots
(Number one's New Jersey)
But this big cesspit has sure topped them all
(Lookie here, we got a winner!)
The rats, they're crawling over us while we sleep
It smells not like trash or ass
No, more like s-s-s-skunk juice

This spot ain't great, it's a Grade-A sh!thole!
This spot ain't great, it's a Grade-A sh!thole!
This spot ain't great, it's a Grade-A sh!thole!
My bathtub's full with brandy bottles

I'm not happy, man
Did the brochure talk about the constant rain?
The food that causes pain?
You're so stupid, man
Did you really think I'd enjoy sinking sand?
This wasn't worth ten grand!

All the boys who got trapped in the Sludge Caves
And all the girls whose legs couldn't run fast enough
Scream, until the plane comes down

This place ain't great, it's a first-class sh!thole!
This place ain't great, it's a first-class sh!thole!
(Bad food!)
This place ain't great, it's a first-class sh!thole!
(Volcanoes too)
This place ain't great, it's a first-class sh!thole!
(Erupting!)
This place ain't great, it's a first-class sh!thole!
(Well, crap)
This place ain't great, it's a first-class sh!thole!

We're in trouble, man
And it's thanks to you, and your dumb travel tip
You're an asshole, Chip!
What a bummer, man!
Now this vacation, it may well be my last
Must run to save my ass!
Not based on a true story...I hope.

Sounds like York, South Carolina! My friend Rick used to say if he could give the US an enema he'd stick the nozzle in Johnson City, Tennessee. LOL on the NJ slam, though I bet Michael P won't appreciate it, heh heh.

brandy bottles in the bathtub? ? ? What kind of travel agent do you have, Sir?

Vacation from Hell!!! Awesome work Conqueror, make sure to read my parody of this song tomorrow.

With this and "This One Camp Trip" you are the master of bad vacations. I liked the line, "Lookie here, we got a winner!". (Heh... My Security Code is MTV, but I wouldn't recomend this spot for them to do a Spring Break shoot).

Smelly indeed

(Artistry) Have a nice trip? The spoken part puzzled me a little, but overall this was pretty good. Nice use of a new swear word to replace the other one. :)

(Artistry) Sludge caves, heh heh. I bet a lot of us can relate to this one, I know I can.

Good job. Again proof that there is no place like home. I too chuckled at "...we got a winner"

Hmm, seems this one was hard to pace well for you as well. I kinda got the idea, but not among my TCOP favorites. The first verse was particularly off for me, but still good idea to a great OS (well to me anyway:)

The title alone was hilarious, but I also found a few sections with the pacing that I didn't quite get. It seems to be a tough song to pace. 455, tho!

Never a good idea to book tours with Bubba's Travel Service and Bait Shop... ;)

Johnny Cash should have known this place - He's been everywhere, man. I am surprised that a well known author on this site did not jump into your Sh**hole with the New Jersey ref. Sounds like the plane ride wasn’t none too keen either. I could just see some old lady getting off and asking the Captain "Did we land or were we shot down"? Fine write COP.

(ABC) what's a nice Adelaide bloke like you dissing New Jersey for, bobpie? Great subs on the OS throughout - and I hope you get that bamboo wall-hanging thru customs - 555

(ABC) This ain't too bad; it's a first-class song spoof! $555 for a ticket home!

Thankfully nothing like this has ever happened to me. Good work here. 555

Still a good idea, still had a little trouble with your pacing, still a fun song.
