This is just a happy song about stepping back from the daily grind to enjoy life. It is Eric's first ukulele song and you can't help but smile when you listen to it.

Hooky Song

Well the weatherman’s calling for a beautiful day

It’s sunny and seventy three

The perfect day for a get away

What do you say Baby - just you and me?

We can unwind maybe step back in time

And do like we used to do

In those good old footloose carefree days

When I used to play hooky with you

Well the weatherman’s calling for a beautiful day

Not a cloud in the clear blue sky

Let’s phone in a mental health holiday

Maybe tell just a little white lie

We could go for a ride out to the countryside

Find a quiet spot for two

Off the beaten path in the tall green grass

The perfect place to play hooky with you

We could pack a picnic basket with a blanket and some wine

Oh Darlin’ don’t that sound divine?

Well it sure would be my pleasure

Just to spend a day of leisure

Makin’ memories to treasure with you – ooh ooh

Well the weatherman’s calling for a beautiful day

Tell ya what we ought to do (We ought to do)

Let’s phone in a mental health holiday

Maybe plan a soirée for two (Sacre bleu)

You know that old cliché about all work and no play

Makin’ Jack a dull boy, well it’s true

And though I may not know Jack there’s no denyin’ the fact

I sure love playing hooky with you

And though I may not know Jack  (He don’t know Jack)

There’s no denying the fact (A fact’s a fact)

I sure love playin’ hooky with you!
