  • When I was younger I used to be wild
    As wild as an elephant's child
    No one could hold me down
    No one could keep me around
    Now it's your turn, take a shot
    Baby show me everything that you got
    Maybe you can keep me alive
    Maybe you can get in my mind
    But it's only a matter of time

    Before I run far away
    I need to take a holiday
    Maybe it's a fall from grace
    I gotta find a new place
    A holiday
    I'll set off on a new chase
    I gotta see a new face
    I need to take a holiday

    My father, he was always wise
    As wise as an elephant's eyes
    He couldn't hold me down
    He couldn't keep me around
    So are you gonna take your shot?
    It's the only one that you got
    Maybe I'll go out on a limb
    Maybe I'll jump in for a swim
    When the lights go dim

    You know I'll run far away
    I need to take a holiday
    Maybe it's a fall from grace
    I gotta find a new place
    A holiday
    I'll set off on a new chase
    I gotta see a new face
    I need to take a holiday
    (Need to take a holiday)

    Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

    A new start
    I've broken too many hearts
    And I don't have any clue where to go
    I don't know
    But maybe I'll be back someday after my holiday

    When I was younger I used to be wild
    As wild as an elephant's child
    And I don't think I'll ever change
    I think I'm gonna stay the same

    I'll run far away
    I need to take a holiday (need to take a holiday)
    Maybe it's a fall from grace
    I gotta find a new place
    A holiday
    I'll set off on a new chase (set off on a new chase)
    I gotta see a new face
    I need to take a holiday

    A new start
    I've broken too many hearts
    And I don't have any clue where to go
    I don't know
    But maybe I'll be back someday after my holiday

    All of the wasted time
    The hours that were left behind
    The answers that we'll never find
    They don't mean a thing tonight Writer/s: MARTIN JOHNSON
