Lyric

    CH#1(M)  

FOR A WORKING MAN, THERE’S LITTLE TIME TO REST

 

     CH#2(M)

YOU WORK ALL HOURS, YOU JUST TRY TO DO YOUR BEST

 

     CH#3(F)

AND WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO SHOW FOR IT

WHEN YOU GET TO THE END OF THE WEEK

 

     CH#4(F)       

YOU’VE GOT BLISTERS ON YOUR FINGERS,

YOUR SPIRITS GONE AND YOUR JOINTS ALL CREAK... 

 

     CH#1

BUT YOU CARRY ON, THERE’S A LIVING TO BE MADE

 

     CH#2

AND MOUTHS TO FEED, YOU’RE LUCKY YOU’VE GOT A TRADE

         

     CH#3&4   

LIFE CAN BE HARD BUT THEN AGAIN,

WE HAVE A LOT OF HAPPY TIMES

 

     CH#1&2   

AND WHEN THERE’S A CHANCE TO CELEBRATE,

YOU DON’T NEED TO ASK US TWICE!

 

     CH#ALL   

TODAY’S A HOLIDAY, SO LET’S MAKE IT A DAY TO REMEMBER,

THROW ALL YOUR CARES AWAY, THE SUN IS OUT,

LET’S HEAR YOU SHOUT HIP HOORAY!

A HAPPY HOLIDAY, THIS FEELING SHOULD LAST FOR EVER,

TOMORROWS FAR AWAY,     

     CH#3

TAKE YOUR TIME    

     CH#4

DRINK SOME WINE                                 

     CH#2

TODAY’S ALL MINE

     CH#ALL

HOLIDAY!

    

     CH#ALL (UNDER)

WE WORK ALL HOURS    -   AND NEVER COMPLAIN
JUST ONE DAY OF REST -  AND WE’LL BE HAPPY AGAIN

 

 

              CH#1                                 CH#2

IT’S A SIMPLE COMBINATION,       

                    YOU DON’T NEED TO USE YOUR HEAD

JUST CONSIDER THIS EQUATION      

                       AND REMEMBER WHAT I SAID.

WHEN THE WORKING SITUATION       

                       STARTS TO MULTIPLY YOUR PAIN

JUST ADD A SHORT VACATION        

                       HEY, JOIN THE CELEBRATION

AND WE’LL BE HAPPY AGAIN

                       AND WE’LL BE HAPPY AGAIN

 

     CH#ALL   

TODAY’S A HOLIDAY, SO LET’S MAKE IT A DAY TO REMEMBER,

THROW ALL YOUR CARES AWAY, THE SUN IS OUT,

LET’S HEAR YOU SHOUT - HIP HOORAY!

KEY CHANGE     

A HAPPY HOLIDAY, THIS FEELING SHOULD LAST FOR EVER, TOMORROWS FAR AWAY

     

     CH#1

TAKE YOUR TIME    

     CH#2

DRINK SOME WINE,

     CH#3

THE SUN IS OUT    

     CH#4

LET EVERYONE SHOUT,

                                      

     CH#ALL

TODAY IS A HOLIDAY!
