Album: Will You Be Staying After Sunday? (1969)
Charted: 32
  • Don't let a lonely Monday come again...

    Will you be staying after Sunday? Or go home on Monday?
    Will you be staying after Sunday or go home?

    Your lips are warm on Friday night
    The next two days you hold me tight
    But when it's done you always go and I'm alone

    Will you be staying after Sunday? Or go home on Monday?
    I'll keep waiting for that one day
    You'll be mine

    I'd give the world to keep you here
    Why do you need to disappear
    And When I press you do your best
    To stall for time

    I wouldn't try to own your soul
    You can be free
    I only want you here each night
    Loving me

    Will you be staying after Sunday? Or go home on Monday?
    We gotta let this feeling grow
    Or Let it end

    You say you care
    Well if you do
    Don't ever go
    I'm begging you

    Don't let a lonely Monday come again...

    Will you be staying after Sunday? Or go home on Monday?
    (Repeat last line 4x)

  • Don from Willoughby, OhHas anyone noticed that this sounds like Sunday Will Never Be The Same by Spanky & Our Gang?.
    Sunday Will Never Be The Same was first offered to the Mamas and Papas but was turned down because But John Philips, is doing mostly his own songs at that time.
    One can't help but wonder how much Mama Cass had to do with this song.
  • Scott from Portland, OrWhat a lovely slice of Sunshine Pop. So glad to hear Bonnie went on to much success in the health care field. I hope she still sings--even to a grand baby or two!
