i don’t like mondays lyrics – boomtown rats

the silicon chip inside her head
gets switched to overload
and n*body’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
her 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 reasons do you need, oh oh oh oh?

(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 the toys a while
and school’s out early and soon we be learning
and the lesson today is how to die
and then the bullh*rn crackles and the captain tackles
with the problems and the hows and whys
and he can see no reasons
’cause there are no reasons
what reason do you need to die, die, oh oh oh?

the silicon chip inside her head
gets switched to overload
and n*body’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
