The Lyrics

Lights out tonight
You're in vacation world
You're already lost
Hopeless directions, girl
You're still on the highway
Looking for your motel
But there's one thing I know for sure, that's
You don't know a thing
About getting anywhere
You don't know a thing
So you pull at your hair
I'm gonna tell you you're gonna get lost
In Alaska now
Talk about a dream,
Getting there this week
You wake up in the night
In a motel near the street
That just happened
To have a vacancy
Well go, now start driving

Bad plans, you live your vacation today
Let me tell you girl
That's the price you gotta pay
Until you understand the map
Or ask for directions, yeah

Drivin' down the road
You end up in Ohio
When you were aiming for
The city of Chicago
Baby get your facts
or You'll end up in Maine
You'd better listen to me baby
You crossed the border
Into Mexico
As you were headed for
The town of Fargo
Please don't go out tonight
You'll only get more lost

I believe that you can improve
You might one day drive without going to
Peoria's statue
of Columbus, you would get where you want

Above these bad plans, You live your vacation today
Let me tell you girl
That's the price you gotta pay
Until you understand the map
Or ask for directions, yeah

Get rid of your foolish notions
That tell you, "use instinct"
It's got you nowhere, your internal compass stinks
I wanna see one place that you can find
Without getting yourself

Into a bind with these bad plans, You live your vacation today
Let me tell you girl
That's the price you gotta pay
Until you understand the map
Or ask for directions, yeah
