​Take Me to the Sunshine

This song is by Sting and appears on the single When We Dance (1994).

I've been working too hard at the office all year
I've been saving all my days for a break
So I've gotta get away with my baby for a time
If it's just for my sanity's sake

Nothing but work and never no play
Make Jack a dull boy or so they say
And nothing in the world gonna make me stay
I've just got to get away for a day

The smog in the city is clogging up my head
And the noise of the traffic and the poison lead
Too many people I must confess
I'm looking for the cure of a terminal stress

Take me to the sunshine
Take me to the sun

It's a perfect paradise but there ain't no trick
You can walk, you can run, play golf till you're sick
Swim all day, you can dance all night
You can even fall in love if you're feeling right

The surf will roar and the birds will sing
And the warm wind sighs as you practice your swing
And the cares of the world will fade away
As you watch the sun setting on a golden bay

They say that modern man needs to find himself
And what's bad for his spirit is bad for his health
And when the world's used up and there's nowhere else
You'll realise mother nature is the Commonwealth

Take me to the sunshine
Take me to the sun

Take me to the sunshine
Take me to the sun

Take me to the sunshine
Take me to the sun

Take me to the sun
Take me to the sun

I've been working too hard at the office all year
I've been saving all my days for a break
So I've gotta get away with my baby for a time
If it's just for my sanity's sake

Nothing but work and never no play
Make Jack a dull boy or so they say
And nothing in the world gonna make me stay
I've just got to get away for a day

The smog in the city is clogging up my head
And the noise of the traffic and the poison lead
Too many people I must confess
I'm looking for the cure of a terminal stress
