This Song Is Not A Rebel Song

I sat and watched the news today
The sport is over, and the TV's all the same
Religious programmes, cooking shows
The shops close early and you nearly go insane

Sunday Bloody Sunday
Sunday Bloody Sunday

How long, how long will this day go on
How long, how lo-o-ong

Tonight, Monday comes too soon
Tonight

A Sunday roast, a cup of tea
Congealing gravy and the ironing's out for me
Still we hope that it won't end
Monday morning's round the bend

Sunday Bloody Sunday
Sunday Bloody Sunday

I've never been a fan of Sundays so your poem/song resonates well with me.

Lydia said...

Yeah, Sundays have never been a favorite day of mine either. This is a perfect song to describe the tone of the day.
(Have a good week!)

I REALLY wish we could have three day weekends so Sundays wouldn't be so melancholy. Who decided that five work days a week should be the norm? Can we go back & pummel him (I'm sure it was a him)? Of course, he was bringing that down from 7 days a week, so I guess I shouldn't complain. But I still will. So there!

Sunday's boring, yet Monday's not waned either.
What do you want? More sport? I know, how about going in for another bout of Olympics?

Stephen - i dunno, sunday's are at least a day off for most

Lydia - it's tuesdays and thursdays that you really have to watch!!

Bug - can we work Saturday and sunday and have the week off - for the same pay?

Friko - actually the song was inspired by a comedy character who mis-understood the message of the original U2 song
