Sherlock Holmes has dropped his disguises.

He's showing himself as a simple Man.

He says "Oh, what a joy to be vulnerable

to live and love sing and dance".

 

Doctor Watson says it's irresponsible.

He says that Sherlock;s letting us down.

Sherlock Holmes says, "screw you Dr. Watson.

I'm sick of deductions and thoughtful frowns..."

 

Chorus

 

"For so long now I've been thinking

and into my head I've been sinking and sinking.

Now I know that it's time to live again.

I've taken a holiday.

I'm throwing it all away.

I've taken a holiday ay ay ay"

 

Sherlock Holmes is broadening his horizons.

Sherlock Holmes is making new friends.

Sherlock Holmes has been seen at some parties.

Sherlock Holmes is happy again.

 

Sherlock Holmes is through with deductions,

implications and probabilities.

He no longer needs satisfactory explanations

for the one big bewildering mystery.

 

Chorus

 

For so long now he's been wondering.

For so long now he's been pondering.

Now he knows that it's time to live again.

He's taking a holiday.

He's throwing it all away.

He's taking a holiday ay ay ay
