A Holiday Like Home

Mums had enough of all the rain
She’s booked a holiday
Somewhere nice and warm and dry
Thats sunny every day

She packed our bags and cases
Already for the off
Passports and the suncream
With other holiday stuff

Then to the travel agent for our money she did go
And picked up all the tickets
My mum did not go slow
Now the taxi to the airport we were almost there

There were a lot of people doing just the same
So it was just as well they had a really big big plane
Then when we were sitting down I heard a revving noise
Dad said we were climbing up into the sky

The flight was quite a long one so it seemed to me
When I looked out the window all that I could see
Was lots and lots of water as blue as blue can be
Untill the clouds like cotton wool covered up the sea

But when we arrived there
Much to mums surprise
The place was deep in snow drifts
She couldn’t believe her eyes

We spent the next two weeks there
And much to our surprise
We had the bestest holiday
The best time of our lives

Mum’s booked us in for three weeks next year.

The Cider Press

Sitting in the sports bar
Listening to the band
Sing songs which we once sang to
Whilst watching footballs land

Drinking local cider
Sweet but sometimes dry
Remembering my childhood
In a county quite near by

This old and traditional pub
Sits there quiet and still
In the middle of Torquay high street
On the side of a small hill

Remembering an England past
And times now far away
When people gathered in a pub
And sang the night away

Reflections of an age long gone
When we were all once young
Of songs and singing heroes
The pubs were filled with fun

These two lads were singing songs
That filled the charts back then
Plus requests we made to them
We had a lovely time

So if your down in Torquay for summer by the sea
Visit at The Cider Press and have a glass for me
Then sing along to “Poster Child’ you’ll be really glad
You’ll leave happy and contented now that can’t be bad

Happy New Year

Well Christmas is over the sales have begun

Now come the rush to the shops oh what fun

Next it is New year and bubbly all round

But the next day we are back on the ground


We all start the year with new resolutions

But what we do next is plan our vacations

To somewhere that’s nice and sunny and hot

Not raining all day or pouring a lot


We work out how much we have to spend

Then do sums again just incase we were wrong

And just when we think it’s all sorted out

Up pops the Easter Bunny Ohh goody we shout


Chocky oh chocky we eat by the egg

Before we realise it the inches have spread

Now down to the gym for a workout we go

Got to get fit for the holidays you know


The holidays are looming and then they are gone

The autumn approaches with harvest and fun

Now we have fall with fireworks then winter has come

All of a sudden its CHRISTMAS again  now we start all over again
