I'm going to have a vacation!
      I'll leave all my housework behind,
      And not have to do any cooking;
      I'll forget all the daily grind!
I'll bask in the sunshine—don't worry!—
      And so all the things that are right;
      I'll enjoy myself every minute,
      And I'll go to a dance each night!
But when my vacation is over
      And I pack my glad rags, alone,
      I'll be happy—so very happy!—
      For, really, there's no place like home!
~Gertrude Tooley Buckingham, "My Vacation" (1940s)
