Jumpin' out the window Movin' on, groovin' on Which way will the wind blow? We can't be wrong, so say "So long" Imma pick you up, Imma pick you up Whatcha tryin' to say to me? Catch the train at two, what you try'na do? Are you gonna play with me?
[Chorus] All my life, I've been waiting Pass my time, procrastinating now It's a trip, Imma flip And flash right through the scene Can't you see what I mean?
Breaking through the boundaries Rollin' on, strollin' on They won't ever find me After all, we'll have a ball Imma pick you up, Imma pick u up We're gonna see where we can go This is how I live, this is what I give And you're the one I want to know
Tiny minded two-toned suckers Same old faces make me shudder Countless times I've screamed oh brother! Where are you? I need someone to be my lover!
It's a trip, Imma flip And flash right through the scene Can't you see what I mean?
New Order took the title for "Blue Monday" from an illustration, which read "Goodbye Blue Monday," in the Kurt Vonnegut book Breakfast Of Champions. The image referred to the invention of the washing machine improving housewives' lives.
