I dangled a juicy carrot and my hubby took the bait
I played Greek music loudly and out came the sun
"Turn that din off," he said, though only said in fun
I got out his fancy shorts and placed for him to see
Do you like these my dear? the one's below the knee
I got out the photos saying do you remember when?
I can picture myself back there, I looked so tanned then
He began to take an interest when my daughter laughed out loud
He was caught dancing the Zorba kicking his legs high and proud
He looked a proper twit, although he thought he was the best
He looked like he was having a fit in his shorts and yellow vest
Let me see! was his cry as we put away the proof
Snatching at the packet and nearly hitting the roof
What's wrong with my dancing I was every bit as good?
Then he remembered the woman on whose toe he stood
She spoke a foreign language but you could clearly tell
She wasn't very happy coz her finger wagged as well
Sorry! was his sweaty reply as danced like the Greeks
The art of silly dancing and king of all the geeks
My daughter had disowned him and kept her head down low
He's not my dad -- please mum can we go?
Our last trip to Greece and the practice he does need
So straight into action I planned my dirty deed
I praised his wonderful effort and then moaned about the rain
I moaned about my Raynaud's and how we should go back again
I think I may need an infusion if my fingers keep turning blue
And you'll have to survive a week and make your dinners too
I'd rather save the effort and fix my problem for free
The sun does absolute wonders for all of us you see.
It didn't take much persuading when I kept on with my plan
And finally he realised he was a beaten man.
We'll see what's available what deal we can get
So I switched on the computer and clicked on internet!
It didn't take long to secure our seat
A bargain price so hard to beat
So I clicked on "book" and off we go!
Back to Greece -- I told you so!
My case is packed with all my wear
I cannot wait to get there!
I'll be out at night without a vest
And get a tan, well I'll do my best
To feel the sun upon my skin
Is worth the nicest lottery win
No raynaud's attacks in my fingers and toes
To go outdoors in skimpy clothes
To sit and watch the lovely sunset
Instead there's rain in Blighty I bet
To hear the music in my ears
The end of the day nears
The twinkling night lights fill the bay
So different from the heat of the day
I can see an ocean liner as it passes by
On the horizon against the sky
Oh yes! I'm off to Greece again
Away from all the cold and rain
Who knows what company we will meet
On my idyllic Greek island down on Crete!
