Lyrics
:

Waiting for the summer
Waiting for the crowds
Waiting for the holidays
Gone is the winter, here comes the summer
It�s a bank holiday weekend

From May 27 to May 28
The waiting ain�t as long as it seems
Cause here come the people
Here come the crowds
It�s a bank holiday weekend
But you know it�s got to end

It�s a bank holiday weekend
Nothing ever seems to go on
A peaceful holiday weekend
A bank holiday weekend

There�s fights on the beaches
Fights in the pubs
Kids everywhere to be seen
The summer is starting
They turn back the clocks
It�s time for icecream and rock
But you know it�s got to end

It�s a bank holiday weekend
Nothing ever seems to go on
A peaceful holiday weekend
A bank holiday weekend

But where do they come from
I don�t know (I don�t know)
And where do they go to
I don�t know (I don�t know)
But you know it�s got to end

It�s a bank holiday weekend
Nothing ever seems to go on
A peaceful holiday weekend
A bank holiday weekend

Too many people
Too many lads
Too many trying to get in
They�re looking for action
Looking for fun
It�s a bank holiday weekend
But you know it�s got to end

It�s a bank holiday weekend
Nothing ever seems to go on
A peaceful holiday weekend
A bank holiday weekend

Where do they come from
I don�t know (I don�t know)
And where do they go to
I don�t know (I don�t know)
But you know it�s got to end

It�s a bank holiday weekend
Nothing ever seems to go on
A peaceful holiday weekend
A bank holiday weekend
