HOLIDAY Lyrics

T-T-Tay Keith Took it to ten (hey)

Ayy, it's a holiday
I got hoes on hoes and they outta control, yeah
Ayy, it's another way
All my niggas on go and I hope that you know it

I can't even close my eyes
And I don't know why, guess I don't like surprises
I can't even stay away from the game that I play
They gon' know us today, yeah

Ayy, can I pop shit?
I might bottom on the low, but I top shit
Switch the genre on you hoes, do a rock kid
I got the biggest damn song, fuck the charts
Sis, I don't need 'em

They wanna know if I be lastin'
Bitch, even if I started floppin' that be fashion
Poppin' up in movies, ain't no Nas-y, bitch, it's Ashton
Hee, hee, I'm bad as Michael Jackson
Dun, dun, dun

Ayy, it's a holiday
I got hoes on hoes and they outta control, yeah
Ayy, it's another way
All my niggas on go and I hope that you know it

I can't even close my eyes
And I don't know why, guess I don't like surprises
I can't even stay away from the game that I play
They gon' know us today, yeah

Man, I snuck into the game, came in on a horse
I pulled the gimmick, I admit it, I got no remorse
Nobody tried to lay me in, nobody opened doors
I kick the motherfuckers down, they didn't have a choice

Dun, dun, dun
They tried to nix me, ayy, but I'm blessed, see
Ayy, no flex, but my checks givin' vet tease
Ayy, and I'm sexy, they wanna sex me
Popstar, but the rappers still respect me

They wanna know if I be lastin'
Bitch, even if I started floppin' that be fashion
Poppin' up in movies, ain't no Nas-y, bitch, it's Ashton
Hee, hee, I'm bad as Michael Jackson
Dun, dun, dun

Ayy, it's a holiday
I got hoes on hoes and they outta control, yeah
Ayy, it's another way
All my niggas on go and I hope that you know it

I can't even close my eyes
And I don't know why, guess I don't like surprises
I can't even stay away from the game that I play
They gon' know us today, yeah

Tay Keith, fuck these niggas up
Daytrip took it to ten (hey)

HOLIDAY Meanings

I personally do not agree with Thomas's interpretation of some of the lyrics. From what I understand, his interpretation about the sexuality part was from the lyrics "I might bottom on the low, but I top shit". In my opinion, this lyric is basically highlighting the fact that Lil Nas is not really a big star or big musician. He might have a few hits, but that does not mean that he is at the 'top' of the industry. That being said, he is saying that his does not care about how popular he is. He has some major hits and he "tops" in his career regardless of that. Old town road could be an example of such hits.

If Lil Nas was aiming to create a followup successful song for his previous hit old town road, then he definitely succeeded. Holiday is basically a continuation of Lil Nas X's Old town Road. In this song, Lil Nas is focusing on a couple of different things. The first thing he talks about is his sexuality. He mentioned that he might be gay last year, and some lyrics in this song might be a hint towards that. He has also given shout outs to a few hit tracks by other artists like Bad by Michael Jackson. Lastly, he is just talking about the overall holidays spirit.
