They jumped aboard a plane one day
To cast their cares away
They traveled to a foreign land
To experience all they may

They had but one single week
To cast their cares aside
Hoping in this short short time
From their troubles they could hide

They packed thier bags so full
Not wanting a thing left behind
And running to depature gate
With joyous gleeful minds

They checked into the hotel
Drank a complimentary drink
Popped their suitcase open
And put tootbrush on the sink

They signed for every tour
For nothing did they want to miss
Fell asleep soundly every evening
To what they considered true life bliss

Each day that did pass them by
Each tour they returned from
Left them more exhausted
And worn out by the sun

Finally the day did come
When they must return home
And neither one did say it
But in their desire, neither was alone

They struggled with their baggage
Feeling tired and overworn
And as they crossed home threshold
Felt the greeting oh so warm

They talked about how they needed
Just a day or two of rest
But tommorow was the day
They resume to the work desk

So they made a pact in earnest
And keep it each vacation holiday
To enjoy things at a simple pace
And sip pleasure as slowly as they may
