Verse 1
The silicon chip inside her head
Gets switched to overload
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 sure
Verse 2
Oh, oh, oh tell me why
I don't like Mondays
Verse 3
Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
Verse 4
Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
I want to shoot
The whole day down
Verse 5
The Telex machine is kept so clean
As 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
Now, it ain't so neat to admit defeat
They can see no reasons
'Cause there are no reasons
What reason do you need oh, woah
Verse 6
Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
Verse 7
Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
Verse 8
Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
I want to shoot
The whole day down
Down, down
Shoot it all down
Verse 9
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
Verse 10
Oh, oh, oh and the silicon chip inside her head
Gets switched to overload
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 sure
Verse 11
Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
Tell me why
Verse 12
I don't like Mondays
Tell me why
Verse 13
I don't like, I don't like, 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 want to shoot, the whole day down, uh, uh, uh
