Think it’s time to take a holiday
And I’ve found the perfect place to stay
Booked the villa and the Qantas fare
Lost my Bolles so I’ll get some there

So get busy with the spray-on tan
We’ll be sitting on the sun-bleached sand
No excuses let’s just disappear
We’ll soon be jetting through the stratosphere

I know things have been crazy
Now we’ll get a bit lazy
Watch the tide roll in
Sippin’ on a gin
For 9 days in paradise

And I think it will be good for us
Cos I know there’s things we should discuss
But that’s all for another day
Let’s just pack an extra cabernet

Spending time together
All for some needed relief
Walking, swimming, dancing
Finding Nemo in a coral reef

Wish I’d spent more hours at the gym
Love handles where I once was slim
Sitting on this circular bay
Wearing nothing but a floral lei

Think it’s time to take a holiday
And I’ve found the perfect place to stay
No excuses let’s just disappear
We’ll soon be jetting through the stratosphere
