Monday Blues Again

Author’s Note: I wrote this last week but waited ’til Monday to post it. “Case of the Mondays” came from the film Office Space by Mike Judge, starring Ron Livingston and Jennifer Aniston. Well, last week, I’m having Monday blues again and then I remembered that film and borrowed that epic line! Actually…

I am tired of listening to my whines
I am tired from writing about my cries
I tried hard to conquer Monday blues
Don’t know how to start, effort is no use

I keep telling myself it’s just a phase
I am convincing myself it will pass
I tried so hard to escape from my woes
Yet here I am, writing about my rant

So here it goes…

Monday blues, it’s striking again
It’s dull and I am uninspired
If only I can pull the hours
Fast forward my week to Friday

Zoning out, my sanity’s gone
I am restless and exhausted
Yet the week has barely started
Well, it’s the case of the Mondays!

Blame the dark and gloomy weather
Blame the October fall morning
Blame my dreary and tiresome job
But all blame is actually mine!

Monday Blues

Author’s Note: Garfield hates Mondays and this picture is the perfect fit for “Monday Blues”. I wrote this yesterday after a weekend that (always) feels so short.

Filipino Version:
Bitin na naman ang Sabado at Linggo
At kulang na kulang pa ang pahinga ko
Gusto ko ay palaging mamaluktot
Kasama ng aking unan at kumot
Kung maaari ay magpakabatugan
Humiga sa kama ng walang alisan
Hayaang buong araw akong matulog
At bawal ang kahit ano mang bulabog
Ngunit Lunes na naman pala ngayon
Dapat kumayod; kailangan bumangon
Kahit ako ay sobra pang inaantok
Kaladkarin na ang sarili papasok

English Version:
My weekends are always not enough
I need an extra day to recharge
I want a snooze, followed by a slumber
Be with my pillow and comforter
If I may, just let me hibernate
Never leave and stay lying on my bed
Allow me to nap and sleep all day
Disturbance is stricly prohibited
But today is actually a Monday
I must work; now, I need to get up
Though I’m sleepy and not in the mood
I have to drag myself and force my groove
