I’m on a tropical vacation
Fruit drink elation
In an island nation.

Sipping by the seaside
Watching the tide
Oh, I must confide,

This relaxes the tired and weary.
And days become bleary,
Then eyes become teary

As I realize that the conclusion
Is nearing its completion.
Reality clears my vision

As I down the last little flute
Say bye to grapefruit,
Reality slowly dilutesโ€ฆ

It seems like I arrive and then blink
Glass empty of drink,
Then itโ€™s time to thinkโ€ฆ

Of saying to this paradise, โ€œShalom!โ€
Of going back to sweet homeโ€ฆ
And greeting the garden gnome.
