Kinks – Holiday lyrics

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 'cause 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.
