Baja Holiday[i]

By Doug Moreland, from the album Everybody Knows My Name

 

Wasting away for seven days,

Crashing through the waves.

Sailing away from yesterday,

On my Baja Holiday.

Yeah, yeah … Baja Holiday!

 

Someone’s singing Boats Drinks[ii]

Can’t a fella bring me some rum?

Maybe a little splash of coke, I think.

Umbrella to shade it from the sun.

 

It wasn’t three days ago, I was headed west

With just one thought on my mind.

Advice to myself, my advice is no best.

Leave your worries and Texas behind!

 

Wasting away for seven days,

Crashing through the waves.

Sailing away from yesterday,

On my Baja Holiday.

Yeah, yeah … Baja Holiday!

 

Someone says, “Cabo, next port of call.”

Man I love that part of Mexico.

But you have got to stand, before you can walk.

I guess I’ll just sit here on the boat!

 

It wasn’t three days ago, I was lower than I’ve ever been,

I knew a vacation was coming someday.

You say … how can a man take time off,

When he ain’t got a job anyway?!

 

Ahhh, Wasting away for seven days,

Crashing through the waves.

I’ve been sailing away from yesterday,

On my Baja Holiday.

Yeah, yeah … Little Baja Holiday!

 

I have no one to send a postcard to,

So I send one to myself

Says “You’re drunk in Mexico.

Love, Yourself”

 

It wasn’t three days ago, I was headed west

With one thought on my mind,

Advice to myself, my advice is no best.

Leave your troubles and Texas behind!

 

Wasting away for seven days.

Crashing through the waves.

Yeah, sailing away from yesterday,

On my Baja Holiday.

For seven days

Crashing through the waves

I’ll be sailing away from yesterday

On my Baja Holiday!

Yeah, yeah … Little Baja Holiday!

Yeah, yeah … Baja Holiday!

 

 

 

 

 

Wishing all of you a little “Baja Holiday”!

 

Love,

 

Yourself!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



[i] We humbly suggest you play the song while reading the lyrics.  Doug hasn’t done a video, It’s just the song playing.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xyA96p9WFxM

 

[ii] A Jimmy Buffett classic!  Jimmy’s story about this song is: “It was February in Boston, and I was cold and wanted to go home.  Rum and tonic was the antifreeze, and the newspaper was full of ads for warmer climates.  I was in a place owned by Derek Sanderson, who was a very famous player for the Boston Bruins in the 70’s.  I came out of the bar and couldn’t find a cab except for the one that was running in front of a nearby hotel.  There was no driver in it, and I was too cold to think about the consequences.  There is an old Navy expression which says, “Beg forgiveness, not permission.”  I hopped in and drove the cab back to my hotel.  I did leave the fare on the seat.”  What his video here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjPUiXWFtB4
