"Bummer Holiday"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

A low-bitrate mp3 of the song can be found here.
We’re all going on a bummer holiday
We are shirking work for week or two
Tent’s unsturdy on a bummer holiday
Cold snow flurries a shock in June
Sure looks bleak, it do

Wind’s blowing yeah, it rains twice-nightly
My shoes are smeared with doggy-do
Obscene cold showers in nudies
Forgot to bring shampoo…

Everybody’s had a bummer holiday
Crawly things they always haunt the loo
Ivy’s poison on a bummer holiday
Wish Cal-mine cream’s come through
For knees and boobs!

My daughter and my son whine - spite-ly
Bestowing glares, my spouse, she do…
Bein’ mean, it ill behooves me
Though threats, in mind, accrue

Everybody’s had a bummer holiday
Screwed, I think we’ve caught a nasty flu
Fam’ly ‘thanked’ me for their bummer holiday
It made esteem shoot through
I’m in the pooh…

DKTOS, but if I have a chance later today I'll come back and listen to the link. Got very little time at the moment.

Mer & Pip - tried the link, but after the first 3 notes it crashed my PC.

It is jaunty. Quite the kick off to summer vacation. Course who'd ever pack Calamine lotion? ;-) High 5's in the shade!

Paul - if you are reading this, my apologies. Although, I have just tested it again and it is fine - it should simply offer itself up as a file download???

Good job. For a duo that's named after two hobbit cousins from LOTR you guys are really really good. I tip my hat off to you.
