Wake up! It's a Monday morning
No time left to say goodbye
Can't breathe and the lights are changing
You can live your own life
Making it happen
Working on your own time
Laid back and laughin'...
Oh no, oh no.

Headlights, make it home by sundown
Feeling that the day is through
Return back to where you come from
You can live your own life
Making it happen
Working on your own time
Laid back and laughin'...
Oh no, oh no.

You wake up in the mornin'
And the sun's comin' up.
Its been up for hours and hours and hours
And hours and hours and hours
It's been up for hours and hours and hours
And you light up the stove
And the coffee cup, its hot
And the orange juice is cold, cold, cold
Monday morning,
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Its time to go,
Time to go to work.

You can live your own life
Making it happen
Working on your own time
Laid back and laughin'...
Oh no, oh no.
No, no, no.
No, no, no.
No, no, no.

    General CommentThis whole song paints the perfect image of getting up in the morning for work, miserable.
    I feel it's about society's view and concept on how you should live your life - work. Get up in the morning, go to work, come back late in the day. "Feeling like the day is through" is so true. I think there are people in life who can be fine with their lives being based on working like a drone. And then there are others who can't live like that, they are those who live life for the sake of their happiness (which I feel is the way to live). The key is finding the right balance between these two. I think that's what this song is about. Living your own life and not letting the sad truth that you HAVE to work in life actually ruin your life.

    Most people I talk to have a real negative concept of their work life. For them it's like a weight attached to your foot every day of your life, but they bear with it and continue on that way for whatever reason. I am a firm believer that life doesn't have to be this way.

    General CommentJust need to say, the bass in this song. Killer. Turns it from a good song, to a great song.
