I need a vacation
I'm goin to Decatur where it's greater
See if I can stack me up some paper
I need a vacation
I'm goin to The Bluff where it's rough
See if I can pick me up enough
I need a vacation
I'm goin to College Park where it's dark
See if I can get me up some hard
I need a vacation
I'm goin to the Four where it good
And errbody know I make it snow
I need a vacation

Blessed be the man who invented vacations! Deeply as I am interested in education, much as I am attached to the young men whom Providence places under my instruction, and much as I find of interest in the sciences which it falls to my lot to teach, yet the annual return of the Summer vacation is always expected with pleasure and hailed with welcome.
