Oh no, no, I never go to work
Oh no, no, I never go to work

On Mondays, I never go to work
On Tuesdays, I stay at home
On Wednesdays, I never feel inclined
Work is the last thing on my mind
On Thursdays, it's a holiday!
And Fridays I detest
Oh it's much too late on a Saturday
And Sunday is the day of rest

Yeah, I'm thinking about copying this, but I think my theme would be mostly about Phoenix and how depressing of a year it was...

So, if you want to get depressed and hear me talk about the dog and lack of money, head on over to my blog soon!
