If we took a holiday
Took some time to celebrate
Just one day out of life
It would be, it would be so nice

Everybody spread the word
We’re gonna have a celebration
All across the world
In every nation
It’s time for the good times
Forget about the bad times, oh yeah
One day to come together
To release the pressure
We need a holiday

If we took a holiday
Took some time to celebrate [Come on, let’s celebrate]
Just one day out of life
It would be, it would be so nice
If we took a holiday
Took some time to celebrate [Come on, let’s celebrate]
Just one day out of life
It would be, it would be so nice

You can turn this world around
And bring back all of those happy days
Put your troubles down
It’s time to celebrate

Let love shine
And we will find a way to come together
And make things better
We need a holiday

If we took a holiday
Took some time to celebrate [Come on, let’s celebrate]
Just one day out of life
It would be, it would be so nice

Oh yeah, oh yeah
Come on, let’s celebrate
We have got to get together

If we took a holiday
Took some time to celebrate [Come on, let’s celebrate]
Just one day out of life
It would be, it would be so nice

[Holiday]
[Celebrate] Come on, let’s celebrate
[Holiday] Just one day out of life
[Celebrate] It would be so nice

[Holiday] Holiday, celebration
[Celebrate] Come together in every nation
[Holiday] Holiday, celebration
[Celebrate] Come together in every nation

[Holiday, celebrate]
[Holiday, celebrate]

[Holiday] We have got to get together
[Celebrate] Take some time to celebrate
[Holiday] Just one day out of life
[Celebrate] It would be so nice

[Holiday] Holiday, celebration
[Celebrate] Come together in every nation
[Holiday] Holiday, celebration
[Celebrate] Come together in every nation
