I don't like Monday's

 - Bob Geldorf -

Boomtown Rats - 1979

 
 The silicon chip inside her head 
Gets switched to overload 
And nobody's gonna go to school today 
She's gonna make them stay at home 
And daddy doesn't understand it 
He always said she was good as gold 
And he can see no reason 
Cos there are no reasons 
What reasons do you need to be shown 
 
Tell me why 
I don't like Mondays 
Tell me why 
I don't like Mondays 
Tell me why 
I don't like Mondays 
I want to shoot 
The whole day down 
 
The telex machine is kept so clean 
And it types to a waiting world. 
And Mother feels so shocked 
Father's world is rocked 
And their thoughts turn to 
Their own little girl 
Sweet 16 ain't that peachy keen 
No it ain't so neat to admit defeat, 
They can see no reasons 
Cos there are no reasons 
What reasons do you need oh oh oh oh 
 
Tell me why 
I don't like Mondays 
Tell me why 
I don't like Mondays 
Tell me why 
I don't like Mondays 
I want to shoot 
The whole day down, down, down 
Shoot it all down 
  

 

 
 
And now the playing's stopped in the playground now 
She wants to play with her toys awhile 
And school's out early and soon we'll be learning 
And the lesson today is how to die 
And then the bullhorn crackles 
And the captain tackles 
With the problems and the how's and why's 
And he can see no reasons 
Cos there are no reasons 
What reason do you need to die, die, oh oh oh 
 
And the silicon chip inside her head 
Gets switched to overload 
And nobody's gonna go to school today 
She's gonna make them stay at home 
And daddy doesn't understand it 
He always said she was good as gold 
And he can see no reasons 
Cos there are no reasons 
What reason do you need to be shown 
 
Tell me why 
I don't like Mondays 
Tell me why 
I don't like Mondays 
Tell me why 
I don't like, I don't like 
I don't like Mondays 
Tell me why 
I don't like, I don't like 
I don't like Mondays 
Tell me why 
I don't like Mondays 
I want to shoot 
The whole day down
