  • Mondays is for drinking to the seldom seen kid

    I've been working on a cocktail called grounds for divorce
    Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Polishing a compass that I hold in my sleeve
    Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Down comes him on sticks but then he kicks like a horse
    Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    There's a tiny cigarette case
    And the rest you can keep
    And the rest you can keep
    And the rest you can keep

    There's a hole in my neighborhood
    Down which of late I cannot help but fall
    There's a hole in my neighborhood
    Down which of late I cannot help but fall

    Mondays is for drinking to the seldom seen kid
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    There's this whispering of jokers doing flesh by the pound
    To a chorus of supposes from the little town whores
    There'll be twisted karaoke at the Aniseed Lounge

    And I'll bring you further roses
    But it does you no good
    And it does me no good
    And it does you no good

    There's a hole in my neighborhood
    Down which of late I cannot help but fall
    There's a hole in my neighborhood
    Down which of late I cannot help but fall

    There's a hole in my neighborhood
    Down which of late I cannot help but fall
    Mmm

    Someday we'll be drinking with the seldom seen kid
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh Writer/s: Guy Edward John Garvey, Craig Lee Potter, Mark Potter, Peter James Turner, Richard Barry Jupp
