about

The title says it all. For everyone who has ever been overworked and overwhelmed, this is your theme song!

lyrics

I need a vacation, Away from email, faxes and phone.
I need a vacation, I wanna be someplace that’s not home.
I wanna get away from the daily grind
And if I don’t go soon I’m gonna lose my mind, because
I need a vacation! I’ve been workin’ too hard for too long.

I need a vacation, So I can stay up as late as I want.
Unplug the alarm clock,
My only goal is to have me some fun.
I wanna sleep in late, have breakfast in bed
Then maybe read a book or take a nap instead, because
I need a vacation! I’ve been workin’ too hard for too long.

I need a vacation, Someplace warm, with a tropical breeze,
With white, sandy beaches,
And lots of handsome cabana boys, please!
I wanna sip my drink from a cocoanut shell,
While I lie out on the beach. My boss can go to hell, because
I need a vacation!
I’ve been workin’ too hard for too long.

Tag: I need a vacation!
I’ve been workin’ too hard for too long. (x2)
