Permanent Vacation

Album: Permanent Vacation (1987)
  • I got a letter from a friend the other morning
    He say it's hot down by Montego Bay
    I got the point and now I think it's finally dawning
    Yeah, yeah, I got to get away
    I got to take myself a Permanent Vacation
    The sky's the limit, but my plane won't fly
    My nose is clean and Lordie don't need no sedation
    Yeah, yeah, and that's the reason why
    I really need it, really, really need St. Tropez
    I want a tan where the sun it never shines
    I really need it, really, really need St. Tropez
    You best believe it that I got to get away
    I got a sister, man she really got a pin head
    She think she kinky but she can't get straight
    She say she livin', but I kinda think she's brain dead
    Just excess baggage on a late night freight
    I really need it, really, really need St. Tropez
    I want a tan where the sun it never shines
    I really need it, really, really need St. Tropez
    You best believe it that I got to get away
    I gotta take me on a Permanent Vacation
    The girl's be cummin' down in Cayman Brack
    I gotta hand it to a firm situation
    Yeah, yeah, got to cut me some slack
    I really need it, really, really need St. Tropez
    I want a tan where the sun it never shines
    I really need it, really, really need St. Tropez
    I really need it, really need it, really really... Writer/s: STEVEN TYLER, BRAD WHITFORD, BRAD E WHITFORD
