Blue Monday

It’s a blue start to the day
A melancholy Monday
Anchor round the neck
For the saddest day of the year.

Or so we’re told
Puts more pressure on
Under pressure from
What they call Blue Monday.

There’s a New Order round town
Straight from the 80’s
About Blue Mondays work ethic
Throw a sickie on that day.

How dare they put a label on it
Tagged on a Monday and say
This is the worst day of the year
And it’s called Blue Monday.
