Jacqueline was seventeen
                      Ab                    Bb
Working on a desk when Ivor peered above a spectacle

Forgot that he had wrecked a girl
Cm               Ab                           Bb
 Sometimes these eyes forget the face they're peering from

When the face they peer upon
G                            Cm
 Well, you know that face as I do
                 Ab
And how in the return of the gaze
          Bb
She can return you the face
              Cm
That you are staring from

Cm (for lead guitar riffs)


CHORUS

Cm           Eb        Bb
 It's always better on holiday
Cm       Eb        Bb
 So much better on holiday
Cm             Eb   Bb
 That's why we only work when
Cm  Eb       Bb
 We need the money


REFRAIN
 
Cm
Gregor was down again
    Ab
Said "come on, kick me again"
    Bb
Said "I'm so drunk I don't mind if you kill me"
Cm           Ab            Bb
Come on you, gutless, I'm alive, oh, I'm alive!
G
Oh, I'm alive!

          Cm
And how I know it's true
        Ab            Bb
But for chips and for freedom I could die


CHORUS

Cm           Eb        Bb
 It's always better on holiday
Cm       Eb        Bb
 So much better on holiday
Cm             Eb   Bb
 That's why we only work when
Cm  Eb       Bb
 We need the money

 That's why we only work when
