Now that your picture's in the paper being rhythmically admired And you can have anyone that you have ever desired All you gotta tell me now is why, why, why, why? Welcome to the working week Oh, I know it don't thrill you, I hope it don't kill you Welcome to the working week You gotta do it till you're through it, so you better get to it.
