So it seems Adams and Rea have disappeared

Which makes me very sad. They were a comedy music duo – and along with their disappearance their songs have disappeared into obscurity.

Since we were at a very nice party on Saturday night at which I was transiently tempted to sing one, I’m going to record the lyrics here for posterity.


Are We Havin’ Fun?

Jane, Michael, Jason,
Sit quiet in the back please,
[Mum]Your dad’s trying to drive,
We don’t want an accident,
[Mum]No we’re not there yet,
I don’t know when,
[But Mum]Give him back his gameboy
I won’t ask you again,
[Mum] We’re here at the camp site,
We’ve put up the tent,
[Mum] But your father has lost both the poles and the pegs,
See I thought [Mum.] he’d packed them,
[Mum] Oh bloody heck,
Yes okay Jane, Hang on, You can go in a sec,

Ohhh, Ohhh, Ohhh, our family holiday,
Are we having fun yet… [No]

[Mum] Boys, stop hitting those ducklings with sticks
[Mum] Jane, let’s find the loo,
Oh god the dog’s just been sick,
[Mum I’ve wee’d in the frizbee!],
That’s all that I need,
And now Jason’s eczema is starting to bleed,
Stay away from those people*
Their dog’s have got rabies,
[Mum, A dingo has taken all my jellybabies]
My head is splitting,
This holiday’s gone sour,
And Jason’s got verrucas from not wearing flip-flops in the shower,

Ohhh, Ohhh, Ohhh, our family holiday,
Are we having fun yet…. [No]

Get in the car kids,
Pack up your stuff,
We’re going home now,
I’ve had enough,
This holiday is shitty,
This camp site’s a farce,
Piss off the lot of you,
Shove your poles up your arse
[Your poles up your arse]

Jason’s inhaling the air from the bed,
Michael’s put a sleeping bag over the dog’s head,
[Mum, Jason won’t stop touching me with his warts!]
Next half-term book me a five-star resort,
I’ve set fire to the tent now I’m starting to crack,
I’ve tied up the children onto the roof rack, [whimpering]
[Mum] The dog’s in the boot,
[Mum] He’s gone cold and stiff,
I’m Thelma and Louise,
Show me the cliff,

Ohhh, Ohhh, Ohhh, our family holiday,
Ohhh, Ohhh, Ohhh, our family holiday,
Was shit.

* the original song uses a term which is now considered offensive by the group referenced.
