Verse 1:
Wake up in the morning
Must make my bed
Brush all my teeth
Comb the hair on my head
Eat all my breakfast
My mom makes a fuss
Then rush out the door
Barely catching a bus
Filling my head with these figures and facts
When school is over
I take the bus back
The chores that are waiting
Just to be done
I thought being a kid would be fun

Chorus:
We need a vacation
From our daily vocation
Oh, oh, oh
It's not easy just being a kid
We're tired just thinking of all that we did
We need time away from
All the work and the hum-drum
Oh, oh, oh
Don't call us, we'll call you
We need some time off

Verse 2:
I love playing baseball and soccer
You bet!
But this is hard work
You should see how I sweat
Hide-and-seek is not easy
It's serious work
Climbing up trees
Getting covered with dirt
We keep up the schedule
Just day after day
We make our suggestions
They don't hear what we say
I'm burning my candle
Out at both ends
I'm taking time off with my friends

Chorus:
We need a vacation
From our daily vocation
Oh, oh, oh
It's not easy just being a kid
We're tired just thinking of all that we did
We need time away from
All the work and the hum-drum
Oh, oh, oh
Don't call us, we'll call you
We need some time off

Verse 3:
Can you picture it now
As we lie on the beach?
Tall frosting fruit punches
Just out of reach
Soaking our troubles away in the pool
Don't anyone dare mention school!

Chorus:
We need a vacation
From our kid life frustration
Oh, oh, oh
Don't call us, we'll call you
We need some time off
We need some time off

We're taking time off!
