Holiday, oh what a lovely day today
I'm oh, so glad they sent me away
To have a little holiday today, holiday

Holiday and I'm just standing on the edge 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 didn't 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 today, holiday

I'm leaving insecurity behind me
The environmental pressures got me down
I don't need no sedatives to slow me down
I don't need no sleeping pills to help me sleep sound

Oh holiday, oh, what a lovely day today
I'm so glad they sent me away
To have a little holiday

Lying on the beach with my back burned rare
And the salt gets in my blisters and the sand 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 oh, so glad they sent me away
To have a little holiday
