I'm going on holiday soon--I'm taking my first trip to the Baltic Sea. I am excited to have a few free days and bike, go to restaurants and relax. To get ready, I'm listening to this song:

Madonna - Holiday

Powered by

(Holiday-Urlaub, Ferien, Feiertag)

Holiday Celebrate (celebrate-feiern)
Holiday Celebrate


If we took a holiday (took-nähmen)
Took some time to celebrate
Just one day out of life
It would be, it would be so nice (it would be-es wäre)

Everybody spread the word (spread the word-sag's weiter)
We're gonna have a celebration (we're gonna-we're going to-wir werden)
All across the world
In every nation
It's time for the good times
Forget about the bad times, oh yeah
One day to come together
To release the pressure (release the pressure-Dampf ablassen)
We need a holiday


You can turn this world around
And bring back all of those happy days
Put your troubles down
It's time to celebrate
Let love shine
And we will find
A way to come together
And make things better
We need a holiday


Holiday Celebrate

Holiday, Celebration
Come together in every nation
