IRVING BERLIN lyrics - I'm Going On A Long Vacation

IRVING BERLIN
"I'm Going On A Long Vacation"

[1st verse:]
Nellie Brown, stenographer
Working on the second floor
Writing letters for a man named Kelly
Kelly's wife, a lady thin
Calls around, is ushered in
Sees her husband fondly kiss Miss Nellie
Next morning Kelly whispered in Nell's ear
She left the office singing loud and clear

[Refrain:]
I'm going on a long vacation
Oh you railway station
First in years so give three cheers
Yea bo, yea, hurray, hurray
Ev'rybody in creation
Needs some recreation
My boss guessed I need some rest
Yea, I'm going away

[2nd verse:]
Nellie told the office boy
He replied with shrieks of joy
Then went in and said to Mister Kelly
"Nellie told me where she'd go
I can tell your wife you know
Don't you think I better go with Nellie?"
Next week the office boy and Nellie Brown
Were holding hands and singing out of town
