Lyric of the Week: VACATION TIME
Leave my everyday behind
My responsibilities are over and done
At least for the meantime
It’s time to get out and have some fun
Throw my stuff in the car
And hit the road to points unknown
Doesn’t matter near or far
Or if you come along or I do it alone
The one thing that matters is getting away
Don’t wanna think about work, I only wanna play
How long for, I can’t say
It’s vacation time! I’m calling in today!
Too much on my mind
Pressing on my mental health
I’ve been working too hard, it’s a crime
It’s high time I do something for myself
It’s a sin to stay inside
When the sun out there is shining bright
I will not be denied
I need to exercise my rights
I will not be a slave; I will be free
I’ll live the way I want to be
Time to proclaim my liberty
It’s vacation time! Now gimme my keys.
I’m gonna do my thing
Gonna dress up right and go out on the town
Don’t know what the night will bring
But whatever’s set up, I’ll be knocking down
Gotta get out tonight and rock
Leave a trail of chaos in my wake
Gonna break through all the locks
And what I believe is mine, believe me, I’ll take
Like a bullet that’s been fired out of a gun
Like a prominence shooting out of the sun
I’m not gonna stop until I’m done
It’s vacation time! Gonna have me some fun.
Well tonight at least, the world is mine
Let the stars come out and the moonlight shine
I’ll paint the town and spill the wine
It’s vacation time! And that’s the last line.

Sometimes you just have to call in and take the time for yourself, and not think one bit about work. This seems to happen more frequently as you get older. This is one of my "fed-up-with-the-working-life songs" from the early 2000s. No music yet.
