"Off On Holiday" as written by and Mcpherson,graham/barson,michael....
Finally the car is packed
We're on our way
Down to the south east coast
On our holiday

The kids are rowing in the back
About who's coat flew off the roof rack
We're on our way
We're off on holiday

Hey hey
We're off on holiday
Hey hey

Some seek enlightenment
On the hippy trail
The Great Wall of China
The Head of Kinsale

I'm just as happy with a pot of tea
In a rotten little beach hut by the sea
We're on our way
We're off on holiday

Hey Hey
We're off on holiday
Hey Hey

Now we're away
We're not coming back
Stick your bills and phone calls
And give me the sack
We're on our way

It's only a small place
It's often cold and grey
The beach is made of pebbles
Not many people come this way

But when the temperature's climbing
And the sun is shining
We're on our way
We're off on holiday

Hey Hey
We're off on holiday
Hey Hey
We're off on holiday

We're on our way
Hey Hey
We're off on holiday
Hey Hey
Now look today

Hey Hey
Hey Hey

Holiday
Holiday
Holiday
Holiday
Holiday
Holiday

    My OpinionThis song makes me so happy :) Since I can remember, I've been going on trips with my mom, dad, and brother, and this always reminds me of all the places we've gone within driving distance.
    I think the lyrics are pretty straightforward. Some people want to go abroad, and visit exotic places on the other side of the world from them, but the narrator is happy going to a quite spot where not many people come. Makes think of my family's getaway spot, New Brunswick.
