The Lyrics

Monday has broken
Eyes are not open
White dog has spoken
'Food is all gone.'

So much for dreaming
Morning I'm mourning
I won't be springing
Blankets are warm.

Hear the cold rain fall
Limbs are all leaden
Then alarm buzz call
Snooze it won’t last

Sleep I must re-press
Or could I bargain?
Bed is my weakness
Night, alas, passed.

What is that bright light
Shown through the curtain?
Eyes are both shut tight
Sun has gained way

Curse with frustration
Curse Monday morning
Sleep’s revocation
Lost to new day

Monday has broken
Thoughts are now forming
Now cat is pokin’
Yowls with concern

Feet on the flooring
Food for the darlings
Cup for me calling
Bed, though, preferred.

Super parody that we all can relate to. Short, simple words, well placed. "Morning I'm mourning" very clever. I like this one a lot.

Good description of Mondays, and most mornings, I guess..

Everyperson's lament.

As Patrick - it's the simplicity and universality that makes this work well. Nice subs and imagery, 555s

I used this OS to do a tune about Alonzo Mourning breaking the Big East record for shot rejections; my worst pun ever ......... Mourning has broken .. The Conference record ... For shot rejections .... In a Big East career ;-D

Mourning, the former Charlotte Hornets' player of the former Charlotte Hornets. I remember him (being a NC resident myself). And speaking of the Big East, just learned my alma mater, ECU, just joined the very same conference. Lots of shuffling going on this year.

Wow! I am reading three days worth, and this is the best of the best. Great subs and a perfect visual that we can all relate to.
