  • Jacqueline was seventeen, working on a desk
    When Ivor peered above a spectacle
    Forgot that he had wrecked a girl
    Sometimes these eyes forget the face they're peering from
    When the face they peer upon
    Well, you know that face as I do
    And how in the return of the gaze
    She can return you the face that you are staring from

    It's always better on holiday, so much better on holiday
    That's why we only work when we need the money
    It's always better on holiday, so much better on holiday
    That's why we only work when we need the money

    Gregor was down again, said, "Come on, kick me again"
    Said, "I'm so drunk, I don't mind if you kill me
    Come on, you gutless
    Yeah, I'm alive, oh, I'm alive
    Oh, I'm alive and how I know it
    Oh, but for chips and for freedom, I could die"

    It's always better on holiday, so much better on holiday
    That's why we only work when we need the money
    It's always better on holiday, so much better on holiday
    That's why we only work when we need the money

    It's always better on holiday, so much better on holiday
    That's why we only work when we need the money
    It's always better on holiday, so much better on holiday
    That's why we only work when we, we need the money Writer/s: Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Nicholas John Mccarthy, Paul Robert Thompson, Robert Hardy
