Thursday



"I do believe that most men live lives of quiet desperation. For despair, optimism is the only practical solution. Hope is practical. Because eliminate that and it's pretty scary. Hope at least gives you the option of living." 
Harry Nilsson


If there’s anyone who understood Thursday better than Harry Nilsson, I can't imagine who it might be. If Thursday was a boat, I bet it’d sink. And it’s surreptitiously unique. And sometimes it makes you want to run away.


Here's why I did not go to work today
Thursday's such a crazy, lazy day
Thursday has its own peculiar way of saying "hey"
Sometimes Thursday almost makes you want to run away
Thursday's such a crazy, lazy day

Yeah, Thursday's such a crazy, lazy day
Let's go have a picnic,
Thursday's such a crazy, lazy day
Hope it doesn't rain
When I'm feeling Thursday I go and have a drink
If Thursday was a boat I bet it'd sink

I did on Monday
I tried on Tuesday
Wednesday's simply not my cup of tea
Thank Heaven it's Friday
Thank the Lord for the weekend
Thursday now, that's such a crazy, lazy day

They say Monday's child is full of faith
Tuesday's child is fair of face
Thursday's child has far to go
And it's no wonder
When the week becomes a rat race
You can bet, win, show or place
But never bet on Thursday ‘cause God's not on its case

Thursday's such a crazy, lazy day
Don't get me wrong
It's just that Thursday's twice as long as it should be
It's twice as long
Mondays, Tuesdays, weekends, Fridays
Don't get in my way
But Thursday's just a crazy, lazy day

Monday is a blues day
That goes for Tuesday
Wednesday's just the middle of the week
Friday is just another payday
The weekend's just another heyday
But Thursday's surreptitiously unique

That's why I didn't go to work today
Thursday's got its own peculiar way of saying "hey"
Sometimes Thursday makes you want to run away
Thursday's such a crazy, lazy day
Thursday's such a crazy, lazy day
