I Don’t Like Mondays

All the versions of this article: [English] [français]

the silicon chip inside her head
gets switched to overload
and nobody’s gonna go to school today
she’s going to 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
’cause 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
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, down, down
shoot it all down
heeyeea

and the playing stopped in the playground now
she wants to play with her toys a while
and school’s out early and soon we’ll be learning
the lesson today is how to die

and then the bullhorn cackles
and the captain tackles
with the problems and the how’s and why’s
and he can see no reason
’cause there are no reasons
what reason do you need to die, die, ohhh

tell me why
i don’t like mondays
tell me why
i don’t like mondays
i don’t like
i don’t like
i don’t like mondays
tell me why
i don’t like mondays
tell me why
i don’t like mondays
i don’t like
i don’t like
i don’t like mondays
ooohmmm
i don’t like mondays…no…

i wanna to shoot
the whole day down
whole day…
whole day….
the whole day down
