This little ditty was inspired by a holiday at Noosa Heads in Queensland, Australia. Despite all the leathery-skinned, wrinkled old people (they were probably a lot younger than they looked!), young people were still sun-baking on Noosa Beach and ending up badly sunburnt every afternoon. We used to walk along Hastings Street in the evenings having a competition to see who could spot the most sunburnt person.
You can swap Noosa for your favourite sun-drenched holiday destination to add a personal touch to the song.
