    “I Don’t Like Mondays” 

    the silicon chip inside her head

    gets switched to overload

    and nobody’s gonna go to school today

    she’s gonna make them stay at home

    daddy doesn’t understand it

    he always said she was good as gold

    and he can see

    no reasons

    ’cause there are

    no reasons

    what reasons do you need to be showed

    tell me why

    i dont like mondays

    tell me why

    i dont like mondays

    tell me why

    i dont like mondays

    i want to shoot the whole day down

    The Telex machine is kept so clean

    And it types to a waiting world

    And Mother feels so shocked

    Father’s world is rocked

    And their thoughts turn to their own little girl

    Sweet 16 ain’t it peachy keen

    No, it ain’t so neat to admit defeat

    They can see no reasons

    ‘Cause there are no reasons

    What reason do you need, oh-h-h

    {Refrain}

    Down, down, shoot it all down

    And all the playing’s 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

    And the lesson today is how to die

    And then the bullhorn crackles

    And the captain tackles

    With the problems and the how’s and why’s

    And he can see no reasons

    ‘Cause there are no reasons

    What reason do you need to die, die, oh-h-h

    And the silicon chip inside her head

    Gets switched to overload

    Oh, 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 as good as gold

    And he can see no reason

    ‘Cause there are no reasons

    What reason do you need to be showed
