The Boomtown Rats - I don’t like Mondays
Tekst en muziek: Bob Geldof
(1979)






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
And 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 reason do you need to be shown



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 wanna 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 sixteen ain’t that peachy keen
No, it ain’t so neat to admit defeat
They can see no reasons
’Cause there are no reasons
What reasons do you need, oh ohohoh



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 wanna shoot
The whole day down, 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, ohohoh



And the silicon chip inside her head
Gets switched to overload
Oh, and nobody’s gonna go to school today
She’s gonna make them stay at home
And 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 reason do you need to be shown



Tell me why
I don’t like mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like, I don’t like
Tell me why
I don’t like mondays



Tell me why
I don’t like, I don’t like
Tell me why
I don’t like mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like mondays
I wanna shoot
The whole day down
Oh ohoh, oh ohoh, oh ohoh, oh
