lyrics

Monday Sunday Funday

Woke up this morning feeling pretty drained
All that weekend sun had gotten to my brain
So I called out from work with a slight migraine
Added minor stomach discomfort, best not to over-explain

Then a thought occurred to me…
Now that I have a whole day to myself…
I could make a Monday feel like a Sunday
I could make a Monday a Sunday a fun day

Then a thought occurred to me…
Now that I have a whole day to myself…
I could be tackling the list, tackling the list, tackling the list

I could be writing a new song, getting laundry done, learning Mah-jongg
I could be making scrambled eggs, shaving both my legs, knitting spider webs

But what about my Monday, my Sunday, my Funday

I should be… tackling the list, tackling the list, tackling the list

I should pay my credit card, mow the neighbor’s yard, eat a tub of lard
I should buy a Chia Pet for men I haven’t met on the internet

Hey! What about my gift card, my gift card from Amazon
I still got a gift card, a gift card from Amazon
I could buy a book about writing a new resume
After today, I may be needing one anyway

Cause I should be tackling the list, tackling the list, tackling the list
I could crumple up the list, crumple up the list, I’m getting really pissed
I could crumple up the list, that f*cking Bucket List, I’m slitting both my wrists

And after getting nothing done, not having one bit of …Fun
I can’t believe it’s already 4 o’clock
And I made a Monday feel like…a Monday
And I guess I’m gonna need a day off!
