Manic Monday

Manic Monday
Six o'clock already
I was just in the middle of a dream
I was kissin' Valentino
By a crystal blue Italian stream
But I can't be late
'Cause then I guess I just won't get paid
These are the days
When you wish your bed was already made

It's just another manic Monday
I wish it were Sunday
'Cause that's my fun day
My I don't have to run day
It's just another manic Monday

Have to catch an early train
Got to be to work by nine
And if I had an aeroplane
I still couldn't make it on time
'Cause it takes me so long just to figure out what I'm gonna wear
Blame it on the train
But the boss is already there

It's just another manic Monday
Wish it were Sunday
'Cause that's my fun day
My I-don't-have-to-run-day
It's just another manic Monday

All of the nights
Why did my lover have to pick last night
To get down?
(Last night, last night)
Doesn't it matter
That I have to feed the both of us
Employment's down
He tells me in his bedroom voice
"C'mon honey, let's go make some noise"
Time it goes so fast
(When you're having fun)

It's just another manic Monday
I wish it were Sunday
'Cause that's my fun day
My I-don't-have-to-run-day

It's just another manic Monday
I wish it was Sunday
'Cause that's my fun day
It's just a manic Monday
Most of you know this song was made popular by the Bangles in the 1980’s but there more to it than that.  The chart topper “Manic Monday” was actually written for a band called Apollonia by Prince in 1982. Prince decided they were wrong for the song and pulled it off Apollonias album.  Two years later, using the pseudonym Christopher, he offered the song to the Bangles.  Manic Monday released with positive reviews from the critic and the rest is history.
