Verse 1
Oh what a [E]lovely [A]day [F#]today,
[Bm]I'm oh so [E]glad they [A]sent me [F#]away,
To [Bm]have a little [E]holid[A]ay to[F#]day, [Bm]hol[Eb]ida[E]y.
Verse 2
[Bm]And I'm just [E]standing on the [A]end of a [F#]pier,
[Bm]Hoping and d[E]reaming [A]you were [F#]here,
[Bm]To share my [E]little [A]holiday.
Verse 3
[A]Lookin' in the [F#]sky for a [Bm]gap in the [E]clouds,
[A]Sometimes I [F#]think that sun ain't n[Bm]ever coming [E]out,
But I'd [A]rather be [A7]here than in that [D]dirty old [Bm]town,
I [E]had to leave the city cos it really brought me down.
Verse 4
Oh [A]holid[F#]ay, [Bm]oh what a [E]lovely [A]day tod[F#]ay,
[Bm]I think I'll get [E]down on my little ol' knees and [A]pray, thank you [F#]Lord,
Thank [Bm]heaven for this [E]holid[A]ay tod[F#]ay, [Bm]holida[E]y.
I'm [D]leaving insecurity [A]behind me,
The [D]environmental pressures got me[A] down,
[A]I don't need no [A7]sedatives to [D]pull me [Bm]round,
[E]I don't need no sleeping pills to help me sleep sound.
Verse 5
Oh holiday,
Oh what a lovely day today,
I think I'll get down on my little ol' knees and pray,
That's what I'll do,
Thank heaven for this holiday.
Verse 6
Lying on the beach with my back burned rare,
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.
Verse 7
Oh holiday,
Oh what a lovely day today,
I'm so glad they sent me away,
To have a little holiday.
