Holiday

Holiday,

Oh what a lovely day today,

I'm so glad they sent me away,

To have a little holiday today, holiday,

Holiday,

And I'm just standing on the end of a pier,

Hoping and dreaming you were here,

To share my little holiday,

.

Lookin' in the sky, for a gap in the clouds,

Sometimes I think that sun ain't never coming out,

But I'd rather be here than in that dirty old town,

I had to leave the city cos it broke me down,

.

Oh holiday, oh what a lovely day today,

I think I'll get down on my little knees and pray, thank you Lord,

Thank heaven for this holiday, holiday,

I'm leaving insecurity behind me,

The environmental pressures got me down,

I don't need no sedatives to pull me round,

I don't need no sleeping pills to help me sleep sound,

.

Oh holiday,

Oh what a lovely day today,

I think I'll get down on my knees and pray,

That's what I'll do,

Thank heaven for this holiday,

.

Lying on the beach with my back burned rare,

And the salt gets in my blisters and the sand gets in my hair,

And the sea's an open sewer,

But I really couldn't care,

I'm breathing through my mouth so I don't have to sniff the air,

.

Oh holiday,

Oh what a lovely day today,

I'm so glad they sent me away,

To have a little holiday.
