I JUST LOVE MONDAYS

entry picture

(An oldie from my back catalogue.  Mondays are doubly enjoyable when it's the first day back at school)

 

The replacement hip Gives me some jip

And my Tens just overflowed

I need Deep Heat For arthritic feet

In winter when it’s snowed

And drivers reprimand me

For shuffling across the road

But I still have reason To enjoy each season

For the rest of the time I’m owed.

I’ll tell you why I Just love Mondays

I’ll tell you why I Just love Mondays

I’ll tell you why I Just love Mondays

Cos it’s true, oo oo oo oo oo

No-one’s around

 

Cos it makes me grin When you’re all packed in

On morning commuter trains

When I’m still in bed With my dreaming head

On the pillow where it’s lain

Or you’re head to toe in tailbacks

On a motorway’s three lanes

See, I’ve got good reasons I’ve got bloody good reasons

To shun this stress and strain

Which is why I Just love Mondays

Yes, this is why I Just love Mondays

I’ll tell you why I Just love Mondays

Cos it’s true, oo oo oo oo oo

No-one’s around

 

I can ride for free On the 403

When it’s after half past nine

Take a lazy walk Through the streets of York

Cos the city’s then all mine, all mine

I can lunch in the grounds of the Minster

Washed down with a Beaujolais wine

Where you see no people Cos the rat-race people

Are at their daily grind…

Which is why I Just love Mondays

Which is why I Just love Mondays

I’ll tell you why I Just love Mondays

Cos it’s true, oo oo oo oo oo

No-one’s around

 

Yes, it makes me smirk When you’re all at work

When I, these days, am not

And of course it’s cool With the kids in school

To enjoy the peace I’ve got

So keep the nation turning

And envy my chosen lot

And did I mention That I get a pension

For doing diddley-squat

Which is why I Just love Mondays

This is why I Just love Mondays

I’ll tell you why I Just love Mondays

Cos it’s true, oo oo oo oo oo

No-one’s around

Thanks for the “Like”, Kev and the comments, fellas.
You’re right about all days feeling the same, MC. Today (Tuesday) is a bit special though; the kids go back to school today.
I’m not familiar with that one Devon. I’ll YouTube it. But here’s one of the Rats’ I’ve baked in the oven previously.

Jeez, I didn't realize this came with a free giveaway record attached. Must have a sales problem. (Just joking John) ?

J.C.,

Since your riffin' on the Rats, perhaps you could spin off "Another Piece of Red" by the same, in a Brexit sort of way. Could be fun.

In my old line of work days off arrived with "shift-work" irregularity
and Monday was (and is in retirement) just another day. But I used
to enjoy the early turn entitlement (up at 5am) that allowed me to
watch the bleary-eyed masses pour out of the underground exits
while I looked forward to my approaching breakfast break.

Thanks Devon for the “Like”.
Don- You must be hungry if she doesn’t come over the weekend.
Pleased you liked the song, Raj. But if you liked the singing you need to get your ears tested?

John, I must say I thoroughly enjoyed that. It deserves an encore.

It led me to listen to that old favourite from Bangles "Just another Manic Monday".

Well done.

I'm 'fraid I don't like Mondays
I have to stay in bed
And wait for little girly girl
To come, and me be fed

I'd rather get myself up
And stay real hid, unseen
And get my own meal ready
(To fatten up my lean)

But no, must wait for girly
Wait girly (in my bed)
I'd rather get myself up
And get my ownself fed

I hate Monday girly-wait......
