It’s Always Monday (a demo)

This little ditty uses Monday as a metaphor for when life doesn’t seem to be working out just right. And in this case, all bad things seem to happen on Monday.

It also speaks to that particular day of the week that hardly anyone wants to see arrive. It’s just a bad day all around.

It’s the reason why “it’s never Sunday long enough,” is my favorite line, as it sums up so well almost everyone’s feelings.


It’s Always Monday

It’s always Monday when you’re coming down
It’s always Monday when the boss comes ‘round
It’s always Monday when you’re too tired to move
It’s always Monday when you’ve been acting a fool.
It’s always Monday when your car won’t start
It’s always Monday when things fall apart

It’s always Monday when you need to go fishing
And it’s always Monday when the clock stops ticking
It’s always Monday when you see the crack of dawn
It’s always Monday when you want to go home
It’s always Monday when she lays down the law
It’s always Monday when you need a back door

And Tuesday is Monday in disguise
And Wednesday is like thorn in your side
And Thursday like watching paint dry

It’s never Friday when you’re ready to run
Never Saturday when you need some sun
And it’s never Sunday long enough

    Amen. Love the “paint dry” line. Wish it was sung like that – all drawn out.. Solid song, though.

    I like this. I am so blessed to be retired. About this time every Sunday I started dreading the work week ahead. Monday’s were the worst. Thanks for sharing in your music so many of the thoughts we all have!
