Testo in due versioni trovato sul solito e sempre ottimo Mudcat Café

I Never Go To Work


L’ho assegnato ad anonimo perché l’attribuzione è incerta. Pare che fosse un cavallo di battaglia di John Hasted (1921-2002), celebre fisico e folksinger inglese.

Here Come the 123s

Più recentemente ne hanno offerta una loro versione i They Might Be Giants nel loro album “per bambini” intitolato “Here Come the 123s” (2008)
[Version 1]

On Mondays, I never goes to work.
On Tuesdays, I stays at home.
On Wednesdays, I never feel inclined.
Work is the last thing on my mind!
Thursday's an 'oliday,
And Fridays I detest.
It's too late to make a start on Saturday,
And Sunday is the day of rest.

[Version 2]

On Monday, I never go to work.
On Tuesday, I lie in bed.
On Wednesday, I stay at home.
Work is the last thing in my head.
On Thursday, it is 'dole' day,
And Friday I detest.
It's too late to go to work on Saturday,
And Sunday is the day of rest.

La versione dei They Might Be Giants
SEVEN DAYS OF THE WEEK (I NEVER GO TO WORK)

Oh no, no, I never go to work
Oh no, no, I never go to work
Oh no, no, I never go to work
Oh no, no, I never go to work

On Mondays I never go to work
On Tuesdays I stay at home
On Wednesdays I never feel inclined
Work is the last thing on my mind

On Thursdays, it's a holiday
And Fridays I detest
Oh, it's much too late on a Saturday
And Sunday is the day of rest

Oh yes, yes, practice trumpet everyday
Oh yes, yes, practice trumpet everyday
Oh yes, yes, practice trumpet everyday
Oh yes, yes, practice trumpet everyday

Practice Monday
Practice Tuesday
Practice Wednesday

Practice Thursday
And Friday
And I practiced all night on Saturday
So on Sundays I played best

Oh no, no, I never go to work
Oh no, no, I never go to work
Oh no, no, I never go to work
Oh no, no, I never go to work

On Mondays I never go to work
On Tuesdays I stay at home
On Wednesdays I never feel inclined
Work is the last thing on my mind

On Thursdays, it's a holiday
And Fridays I detest
Oh, it's much too late on a Saturday
And Sunday is the day of rest
It's the day of rest
