There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Very funny song posted by Davy on his facebook page after he and his sister took a trip 
to Malta. The song is pretty straight forward with the same chord progression through 
every verse and there is no chorus. He plays it with a capo on the 3rd fret.


Capo 3

Intro: C C7 F Fm C G C G-C

Verses 1-7:
        C                     C7
After a rather tough year, we booked a holiday
F           Fm
Under the sun, by a sandy bay
   C             G           C     G-C
We packed up our bags and we left

   C                          C7
We checked into the hotel and our hopes were high
         F                          Fm
But this swarm of god damned students shoved right by
     C                 G                  C      G-C
They nearly knocked us off our god damned feet

   C                              C7
We fought them to the lift but we didn't stand a chance
        F                    Fm
When we finally got in we were pressed against the glass
C            G             C      G-C
Stopping and hitting every floor

C                   C7
Safely in our room, mildly annoyed
   F                              Fm
We poured ourselves a glass of wine, then we heard a noise
           C                   G              C     G-C
It was the god damned students shouting from below

      C                    C7
So we went up to the pool, looking for a spite
    F                          Fm
The students were already there, shouting with all their might
         C               G                 C   G-C
Is there nowhere in this place that we can go

       C                              C7
Well I thought that I might dip a toe, maybe take the plunge
           F                              Fm
But it was overrun with students absorbing water like a sponge
     C                 G               C      G-C
They mocked me while I loitered by the pool

      C                                C7
I was just about to take the dive when one of them jumped in
      F                        Fm
And I thought to myself, well I hope that he can't swim
       C              G                 C     G-C
But he floated like a god damned greasy cork


Verses 8-13:
     C                          C7
Well back down in the corridors, weaving in and out
    F                             Fm
The students lying on the floor, I gave a little shout
     C              G                 C     G-C
As I tripped over a god damned iPhone wire

  C                           C7
Enraged by this point, well I asked the hotel staff
         F                        Fm
Is there something you can do, but all they did was laugh
    C            G       C     G-C
The students are here to stay

               C               C7
They came from Italy, Germany, Espana too
          F                              Fm
But their presence in this hotel makes me want to bash a few
     C             G                  C      G-C
I'll tell you some lessons you should learn

        C                           C7
Don't monopolize the lift, don't go running in the hall
           F                    Fm
Don't take selfies on the roof unless you plan to fall
     C                  G                    C      G-C
I'll tell you something else that you should learn

      C                                 C7
Don't yell in the dead of night, try to learn something each day
       F                             Fm
Most importantly of all, please stay out of our way
      C            G             C      G-C
We've paid for our hotel room as well

     C                          C7
We should've gone to Briton, or maybe Mexico
   F                           Fm
Or anywhere there is, where the students will not go
     C                   G          C    G-C  C7 (ring)
Next year we will take a holiday at home
