Lyrics
Well, it's time for my vacation
It's time for me to have some fun
Yes, it's time for my vacation
I wanna lay out in the sun way down in Florida

'Cause I been workin' every weekend
I been workin' overtime
Now it's time for my vacation
Havin' nothin' on my mind, that's right

Goin' swimmin' in the blue hole
And fishin' with an ol' cane pole

'Cause I can't be like Walter Mitty
It must be real, I must be right
'Cause it's dog eat dog to the pinnacle
And success is an uphill fight

I am fresh and clean every mornin'
And dead on my feet every night

Said it's time for my vacation
It's time for me to have some fun
Yes, it's time for my vacation
And lay out in the sun all day long

We are back to basics
And count my blessin's one by one

We're up for school by seven
Got exams all week long
It's been study, study, study
But come Friday, gonna be gone
I'm gonna get out of here

Are and are on Saturday and Sunday
And party, party on and on

Well, I've been drivin' on the freeway
Traffic slipped and traffic slide
It's wall to wall insanity
Blowin' horns or showin' lights

Should I wind my watch in frustration
Or should I go flying high, no

Gonna take my vacation
Travel on beach to have some fun
'Cause it's time for my vacation
I wanna lay out in the sun, all day long

Headed back for Mother Nature
And party, party all night long, oh
