Well, if you're feelin' lonely
And gettin' in a stew
Just bend your ear, come over here
And, man, here's what you do

If you got the blues, I got some news
Join in the fun in your blue suede shoes

Join the holiday rock, the holiday rock
The holi-holi, hi-de-hi, holiday rock
Hi-de-hi-de-hi, Ho-de-ho-de-ho
Go, go, go to the holiday rock
Hi-de-hi-de-hi, Ho-de-ho-de-ho
Go, go, go to the holiday rock
Maplin's Holiday Camp has not only an Olympic-sized swimming pool and an Hawaiian ballroom, but it also has a funny cupboard, and some very funny entertainment. From Ted, the scheming host... to Peggy, the chalet maid with big dreams... and not forgetting the drunken Punch & Judy performer who hates kids. There's fun for all the family, rain or shine.
