Lyrics

 

It seems like forever

The rain’s been coming down

All this stormy weather

I feel like I’m gonna drown

I’ve been working hard everyday

It’s a crime and it don’t pay

I don’t care where I go I just got to get away

 

It seems like I’ve never

Been this far gone before

Get your things together

We’re heading right out the door

We’ll just leave this whole scene behind

The daily bump and the daily grind

Let’s lose ourselves and see what we can find

 

Oh baby I know when I’m beat

I admit defeat

Let’s beat a hasty holiday retreat

 

I’m tired of the rat race

The rats will always win

I’m through running that race

It’s making my poor head spin

I’m quite happy to trade in my tie

For a pair of shorts and a clear blue sky

I’ll wave the white flag as I wave goodbye

 

So come on, come on, baby

This is our exit plan

There ain’t no time for maybe

Let’s get out while we can

We’ll just leave this whole scene behind

The daily bump and the daily grind

Let’s lose ourselves and see what we can find

 

 (Chorus)
