Written with other writers on a retreat with Chris Difford (Squeeze) in Glastonbury 2019.

Lyrics

Never had a holiday I never went away
Sitting in my little room counting down the days.
Church or Chapel, Band of Hope was all the same to us
A year of fire and brimstone for a day trip on the bus

Kiss me quick wish you were here
Same old postcards every year
I invented Staycation, I never went away
Cause every day’s a holiday

Nose stuck to a window pane looking for a patch of blue
Then skipping to the Whippy Van and tryin' to jump the queue
Falling down a mountainside flattening the ferns
Psycho flicks a lighted match we watch the banking burn

Kiss me quick wish you were here
Same old postcards every year
I invented Staycation, I never went away
Cause every day’s a holiday

Now I'm wise and older
In a comfy little place
Virtual reality helps me leave the human race behind

Kiss me quick wish you were here
Same old postcards every year
I invented Staycation, I never went away
Cause every day’s a holiday x3
