The Beatles

Those punks from across the pond,
Hoodlums with hair way too long,
Enamoured girls scream at their sight.

Bands that changed the music scene,
Enticing rock 'n roll revolution.
Across the waters, across the world,
Tunes remembered across generations.
Love songs with a beat you can dance to,
Everyone knows them, everyone loves them.
Some even say they're the best band ever.

Universal Studios

Under the sun all day long,
Not a care in all the world.
In a paradisal, sunny spot,
Vacationing with loved ones.
Everyone laughing and enjoying,
Reaching a level of perfect bliss.
Smiles on all the faces,
Around you sounds of
Laughter fill the air.

Stepping out of the car, walking
Toward the gates, with
Universal Studios tickets in hand.
Don't you think the day
Is sure to be happy and grand?
Only in Florida can one find
Such fun in the sun, all day long.
