about

Stuff that happened on my stay-at-home vacation the first week of November, 2009. I didn't have a plan, so I was constantly thinking, "What am I gonna do now?" Written and recorded for NaSoAlMo 2009.

lyrics

I don't have to work because I've got a whole week off
I can't sleep late because I've got to feed the dog
I'm on Staycation, what am I gonna do now?

I wanna write a song, I got some lyrics in my head
But I've gotta change the sheets because there's cat puke in the bed
I'm on Staycation, what am I gonna do now?

Staycation....
it's better than working
Staycation....
it's productive
Staycation....
it's like vacation but not as far

I tried to take a nap because my head hurt like hell
A young bearded kid with a clipboard rang my bell
I'm on Staycation, what am I gonna do now?

I went to Waterloo for some chicken ranch tacos
The sorority girl waitress didn't want to take my order
I'm on Staycation, what am I gonna do now?

Staycation....
there's no commuting
Staycation....
I'm saving money
Staycation....
it's like retirement but not as permanent

I got a tummy ache because I ate too many cookies
I drink the Topo Chico so I'll belch like a wookie
I'm on Staycation, what am I gonna do now?

I went to Coffee Bean for a ten gallon tea
The girl called me Amy and I didn't disagree
I'm on Staycation, what am I gonna do now?

Staycation....
twitter and facebook
Staycation....
epic novels
Staycation....
learning to wank on the electric guitar

Now I've got a craving for some dutch apple pie
It's dark outside so I don't want to drive
I'm on Staycation, what am I gonna do now?

Now my week off is almost half over
I better find adventures or you'll think that I'm a loser
I'm on Staycation, what am I gonna do now?

Staycation....
it's better than working
Staycation....
it's productive
Staycation....
it's like vacation but not as far
Staycation....
there's no commuting
Staycation....
I'm saving money
Staycation....
it's like retirement but not as permanent
