Holiday in the Sun in 1991 (feat. Eli Hermit)
Took a holiday in the sun In nineteen-ninety-one We met them at the continental breakfast bar Pineapple juice, croissant, small jams in jars Ken took an adjacent table Larger than life Smelt coffee on his breath Felt sorry for his wife Announced his name Was Ludlow Strange In a conspiratorial American accent And that he was a well-known actor On downtime After filming with Jodie Foster Waiting to shoot a fight scene with Kevin Costner Shared anecdotes of Hollywood around the pool The manager loved him Put them in the penthouse suite Already had their picture framed above the lobby desk Helped them to get the best of the best - Tables at the front of booked up restaurants Free rides around the town For the legendary Ludlow I could not believe it Everywhere we'd go They're there ahead of us Skipping queues and private viewings It was a holiday in the sun In nineteen-ninety-one It was a holiday in the sun In nineteen-ninety-one He kept it up for about six days 'til Me and Hazel Out for a Sangria in the afternoon Last full day of our honeymoon Clocked them out on high stools at a bar by the harbour Recounting a tale of an elephant's trunk swinging Ken knocked their table Glasses rolled and smashed Bloody Mary and beer All over his ridiculous linen suit Soaking in and staining He yelled something profane in A Northern accent We both cracked up Went over to help 'em They're Ken and Jean not Ludlow and Margo We had a laugh We hung out all night Nearly missed our flight home We had a holiday in the sun In nineteen-ninety-one We had a holiday in the sun In nineteen-ninety-one We had a holiday in the sun In nineteen-ninety-one We had a holiday in the sun In nineteen-ninety-one We kept in touch By post and by phone It was pre-internet for us Though they had a dial up modem Met once or twice a year At the sea or by 'falls Fun times Ken could be wild But these things peter out We had a daughter And lost touch Though Jean still writes at Christmas We were shocked when we read that She'd left him after almost three decades together But not totally surprised She said she could no longer see the real Ken When she looked in his eyes His daydreams and manias had taken him away from her His daydreams and manias had taken him away from her His daydreams and manias had taken him away Our daughter shared the clip But didn't know about our trips With the man in tears We've still got our souvenirs
