Monday, Monday... so good to me
Monday morning... it was all I hoped it would be
Oh Monday morning, Monday morning couldn't guarantee
That Monday evening you would still be here with me

Monday, Monday... can't trust that day
Monday, Monday... sometimes it just turns out that way
Oh Monday morning, you gave me no warning of what was to be
Oh Monday, Monday... how could you leave and not take me?

Every other day... every other day...
Every other day of the week is fine, yeah
But whenever Monday comes... but whenever Monday comes
You can find me cryin' all of the time

Monday, Monday ... so good to me
Monday, Monday ... it was all I hoped it would be
Oh Monday morning, Monday morning couldn't guarantee
That Monday evening you would still be here with me …
How could you leave and not take me?
 
Monday, Monday ...
Can’t trust that day
Monday, Monday ...
Sometimes it just works out that way
Monday, Monday ...
Ooohhhh….
Monday, Monday ...
Sometimes it just turns out that way
Monday, Monday ...
Can’t trust that day
Can’t trust that day
Can’t trust that day
Oooohhhhhh…
Can’t trust Monday

ABOUT THE SONG

A rather interesting series of events led me to record this version of Monday, Monday: 

Last holiday season, my landlords asked me watch their house as they went on a cruise.  One morning I awoke to find that the alarm company had responded to a smoke alarm, found no problem and left a note.  I entered their house to check things, and discovered there was a low battery in one smoke detector in the living room.

While I was there, I noticed some songbooks on their piano.  I decided to browse them for songs I might want to learn.  Sure enough, one of them had 'I Left My Heart In San Francisco' ... a song I'd been wanting to learn since I met Antonia Bennett (Tony's daughter) at the Winery Music Awards.

I borrowed the book and played various songs for a few days ... including 'Monday, Monday.'  I played it in a different way that soon inspired me to move from my grand piano to the studio ... launching the Pro Tools ... and this version was the result.  I originally named it 'Monday on Saturday,' but many overdubs and vocals later it returned to it's original name.
