Any fool can play executioner for a day, 

and say with fingers pointed in both directions 

'he went thataway',

But you still wear a cross, 

and you think you're gonna get in. 



Ah, but the pardons never come from up-stairs. 

They're always a moment too late, 

but it's entertainment 

keep the crowd on their toes, 

it's justice, we're safe. 

It's not a hit, it's a holiday 

shoo-bop-shoo-bop my baby 



It's a holiday for hanging, yeah 

It's a holiday for hanging, yeah 

It's a holiday for hanging, yeah 

It's a holiday for hanging, yeah 



I'm a holiday for hanging, 

I'm a holiday for hanging, 

I'm a holiday yeah 

I'm a holiday for hanging, 



It's a holiday for hanging, yeah
