Trivia

Wist je dat? In de songtekst wordt gerept over Moby Dick. Dat was niet alleen een Engelse pub in de Spaanse vakantieplaats Lloret de Mar, het was ook de naam van een walvis in de gelijknamige roman van de Amerikaanse schrijver Herman Melville uit 1851 over de jacht op de witte potvis Moby Dick. Een potvis is een walvisachtig zoogdier. In de songtekst wordt verhaald over 'a whale of a time' (een geweldige lol), waarbij de vertaling van 'whale' op zichzelf natuurlijk 'walvis' is.

Songtekst

{transcribed by Adri Verhoef, 12-2-2013}

Went to Spain to find some rest
A plane brought me to Lloret
Spent the nights drinking wine
Oh, I had a whale of a time

Sittin' outside the Moby Dick
Tryin' to pick up a girl
If you got one, don't ask her why
Every night we say goodbye

[chorus]:
I hope you're gonna hit the big time
I hope you reach something more
I hope you're gonna hit the big time
I hope you reach something more

Time went fast, I must go back
Back to daily life again
Gonna leave the girls, the sun and the sea
To say goodbye is always hard for me

[chorus]
