Verse 1
A     F#     Bm
          E      A   F#
Oh what a lovely day today,
Bm        E         A       F#
I'm oh so glad they sent me away,
   Bm            E    A    F#   Bm Eb E
To have a little holiday today, holiday.

Verse 2
A     F#
Bm           E               A        F#  
And I'm just standing on the end of a pier,
Bm          E       A        F#
Hoping and dreaming you were here,
Bm          E      A
To share my little holiday.

Verse 3
A              F#        Bm         E
Lookin' in the sky for a gap in the clouds,
A           F#                    Bm          E
Sometimes I think that sun ain't never coming out,
        A         A7                D         Bm
But I'd rather be here than in that dirty old town,
I had to leave the city cos it really brought me down.

Verse 4
   A    F#  Bm        E      A      F# 
Oh holiday, oh what a lovely day today,
Bm               E                               A               F#          
I think I'll get down on my little ol' knees and pray, thank you Lord,
      Bm              E    A     F#  Bm    E
Thank heaven for this holiday today, holiday.

    D                  A
I'm leaving insecurity behind me,
    D                             A
The environmental pressures got me down,
A               A7           D       Bm
I don't need no sedatives to pull me round,
I don't need no sleeping pills to help me sleep sound.

Verse 5
Oh holiday,
Oh what a lovely day today,
I think I'll get down on my little ol' knees and pray,
That's what I'll do,
Thank heaven for this holiday.

Verse 6
Lying on the beach with my back burned rare,
The salt gets in my blisters and the sand gets in my hair,
And the sea's an open sewer,
But I really couldn't care,
I'm breathing through my mouth so I don't have to sniff the air.

Verse 7
Oh holiday,
Oh what a lovely day today,
I'm so glad they sent me away,
To have a little holiday.

About the artist behind Holiday Chords:

The Kinks were an English pop/rock group formed in 1963, and categorised as a British Invasion band, along with the other members of the so-called Big Four (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who). Despite being less commercially successful than these three contemporaries, mostly because of a four-year ban from the United States in the mid-to-late 1960s, the Kinks are cited among them as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time and have 12 top 40 hits in America.[1]

The band's early hard-driving singles set a standard in the mid-1960s for rock and roll, while albums such as Face to Face,[2] Something Else, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, Arthur and Muswell Hillbillies are highly regarded by fans, critics, and peers, and are considered amongst the most influential recordings of the era.[3]
