The Lyrics

Vacation days, where can we go
The choices to be found
Planes fill the sky
One is for me
Just get me off the ground

See the Champs-Elysees
Go to Disney World on bargain day
And our NASCAR seats will be right on the track

We drove away, we didn't fly
You took me to the woods
Big tent, campfire, no gourmet foods
Just squirrels for me to fry

Giant bugs, held at bay
With a ladel and a breakfast tray
And they look like sharks with wings upon their backs

Toledo Mosquito
They eat-o burritos

How can you shoo
Off a bug that belongs
In the San Diego Zoo

Wash in a creek, sleep on the ground
A bear just bit my toe
Bowels in turmoil, roiling around
In bushes I must go

Monster flies, snatch my lunch away
While I'm flicking off the fleas all day
And the bugs are keeping me under attack

Toledo Mosquito
They eat-o burritos

Toledo Mosquito
I need-o Sangritos

DKTOS and can't check youtube at work, but you've been so supportive of my BEATLES works. I promise I'll be back to check this out later. Right now, all I can do is say 'Toledo Mosquito/They eat-o burritos' sounds awesome regardless how you slice it.
