The Lyrics

From Jay Leno's monologue on the Tonight Show a couple of weeks ago: "Here's an odd story, did you hear about this? President Bush came out of his ranch house today, saw his shadow, and that means six more weeks of vacation!"
I can never know about the days to come.
But I get some warnings anyway.
And you wonder if I'm really with it now
or just chasing after some time-off day.

I'm on vacation!
I'm on vaca-a-tion!
Don't bug me today!
I'm staying here
play-ay-ay-aying!

And I tell you, how my war is working out so well.
You say two Court vacancies I got?
And I reversed my poll numbers last night
'cause I'm not thinking about New Orleans' real tough spot?

I'm on vacation!
I'm on vaca-a-tion!
Don't bug me today!
I'm staying here
play-ay-ay-aying!

And tomorrow you'll still suffer from weather.
I'm no prophet, that's Pat Robertson's way.
So I won't pay attention to your needs now.
I'll stay right here
'cause these are the good old days.
These are the good old days.
These are the good old days.
These are the good old days.
These are... are...
the good old days!

Wow, William Tong did "Don't Bug Me, I'm On Vacation" to "Another Brick In the Wall" at the same time. Did a really good job, too. Even included the "Don't bug me" phrase that I used. I better check my computer to see if it's bugged!

Go ahead, Carol, fake a tear or two. No, on second thought, don't. I wouldn't want you to lower your fine self to Georgie's level.
