It's been so long, yes since I got away
But now my plane leaves today
I've worked so very hard
through the whole year
Now my vacation is here

Tropical isle in the warm southern seas
Tropical isle waits for me
Packing my things just as fast as I can
You knows I will be there by three

No more traffic jams
No more boss
No more clocks to watch
Hey my vacation started today!

Sleep in the morning as long as I want
Sit on the beach all the day
And in the evening - the music cafe
Listen to the natives play

Basking in the heaven of Shang-gri-La
This place I'll never forget
Maybe I'll stay here the rest of my life
If circumstances will let
