  1. The Hooky Song

From the recording The Hooky Song

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.

Lyrics

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!
