lyrics

Monday’s on the look out
Tuesday’s gonna find out
What Monday is all about
If she doesn’t know by now

“Whatcha do yesterday?”
Said Tuesday to Monday
“I read the papers all day
Just a typical Sunday”
“Well are you giving me your honest word?
Because I heard from a little bird
You’d been out from dusk till dawn
Baby, all weekend long”

Monday’s on the look out
Tuesday’s gonna find out
What Monday is all about
If she doesn’t know by now

“What you think of Monday?”
Said Tuesday to Wednesday
“Well I heard down the way
That Monday was a bad day”
“Why did no one warn me
Things would turn out this way
The week started off so good
God, I’ve been an awful fool”

Monday’s on the look out
Tuesday’s gonna find out
What Monday is all about
If she doesn’t know by now

“Babe you’re gonna lose me
Cried out Tuesday
“And I know you’re gonna rue that day
You’ll wind up with the blues, babe”
“That’s what you say”
Replied Monday
“If you could see yourself clearly
You’d think that you were crazy”
“No, you’re the one that’s crazy”
Said Tuesday back to Monday
“For treating me this a-way
Well you’re gonna get your own some day”

Monday’s on the look out
Tuesday’s gonna find out
What Monday is all about
If she doesn’t know by now
