SEVEN DAYS TO A HOLIDAY
Album : Summer Holiday
Cliff Richard & Michael Sammes Singers
I’ve got it! (Got what?)
Got this bus, London Transport said, "OK"
(OK? OK to what?)
OK to use this bus for transport on our holiday.
They’re with it. (With what?)
With the plan that I have landed them today
(What plan?) (That’s right, what plan?)
If we can do it once, they’ll back us all the way.
7 Days to a holiday and there’s such a lot to do.
Come on fellas, it’s up to you,
we’re in an awful stew,
get us out of this spot.
Are you with us, or not?
6 Days to a holiday, and this bus must look like new.
Shiny bright as a birthday gift. Give it a real face-lift,
and its body the sheen, of a top beauty queen.
5 More days, just 5 more days
to fix up dozens of things.
Let’s spring-clean it, from front to rear
(Yes, I've cleaned all the springs!)
4 Days to a holiday and we know before we’re through,
our bus will be safer than any bank,
tough as an army tank.
We will check everywhere, though it’s hard to get there.
3 Days to a holiday and those sunny skies of blue.
By the time that it leaves our shed,
our bus will be bright red
and we know that we will...
(...paint Pa-ree redder still!
2 Days to a holiday, all of the inside to do,
so this old London bus can pass, as a hotel first class.
We’ll make everything fit.
Including...(Ah, yes, that’s it)
1 More day, just one more day,
so we must not waste an hour.
Come on let’s get the plumbing in,
(Cor, blimey...what a shower!
Off we go on our holiday, and it’s you we have to thank...
"Fellas, I cannot thank you enough for helping us with our bus"
