A holiday, far away, that’s what I’d like to take today
But where to go? That’s what I’d like to know.
There are a squillion places with my trillion gold pesetas
All around this brilliant planet don’t you know?

I could stay in a Swiss mountain-top chalet
Or in a five-star hotel by a lakeside for a day
Or maybe I should choose to take a very long world cruise
On a huge and modern liner. “What you say?”

Don’t forget about a cabin in the woods
That would to me be very, very good
I could sit there by the fire and the embers I’d admire
As I’d think about the next place I could go

A train ride would be very, very nice
A long one or a short one would suffice
A steam train would be best. On the Orient Express?
Or the Trans Canadian Railroad? I dunno

Or maybe I could do the tourist thing
And try to see just every blinking’ thing
This one would take a lot, but that wouldn’t worry me one jot
As I could ponce around the world just like a king?

Or I could hire me a flashy, fancy car, and travel every
Highway, road and by-way that there are
I know it’s not that cool to be using that much fuel
But that wouldn’t matter much to me now I’m a star

What about a mansion by the beach?
With maids and butlers. That would be a peach
There’d be no more time for dreamin’ ‘cause to the servants I’d be screamin’:
“Go and get another jolly ……” eech!!

Or maybe I’ll just stay here where I am and enjoy each day the best way that I can
It wouldn’t cost me so much money yet life could still be sweet as honey
If I were just satisfied with what comes from Gods hand

    I enjoyed your poem very much, and yes just enjoying what God provides like stars and sunsets is hard to beat! I do my travelling in books from the comfort of my sunny porch... great writing.
