Songtekst

The silicon chip inside her head gets switched to overload
And nobody's going to school today
She's going to make them stay at home
And daddy doesn't understand it
He always said she was as good as gold
And he can see no reasons
Cos' there are no reasons
What reason do you need to be sure

[chorus]:
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
As it types to a waiting world
Mother feels so shocked
Father's world is rocked
And their thoughts turn to their own little girl
Sweet sixteen, ain't that peachy keen
Now it ain't so neat to admit defeat
And they can see no reasons
Cos' there are no reasons
What reasons do you need

[chorus]
Down down, shoot it all down

And all 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
But the lesson today is 'how to die'
And then the bullhorn crackles
And the captain tackles with problems and the hows and whys
And he can see no reasons
Cos' there are no reasons
What reasons do you need to die

Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
Tell me why
I don't like [2x]
Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
Tell me why
I don't like [2x]
Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
I want to shoot the whole day down.
