I got out of work and I headed for the neighborhood beer joint 
I sat around and had a beer with the boys like I always do 
Well I didn't have nothin' to say anyway there ain't no point 
There's just something 'bout a Monday that always makes me blue 

Well it was well after dark so I knew my wife and kids were waitin' 
And I guess I took a left where I generally take a right 
Well I filled her up with gas, checked the oil at the Texaco station 
I threw the car seat in the dumpster and headed off into the night 

Woo-ohh-ooh-ooh-ooh 
There's somethin' 'bout a Monday that always makes me blue 
Well I headed south on 35 hell bent for vinyl 
I hadn't never had her up past 55 before 

Well somethin' 'bout that little red line always looked so final 
Buddy you'd be surprised how fast a Chevrolet truck can go 

Now, down in Mexico they've got a little place called Boystown 
Where a man's still a man if you know what I'm talkin' about 
Well, I walked into the Cadillac bar and I laid my cash down 
I said "there's plenty more where that came from" and the lights went out 
 
Well I woke up in a county jail 'cross the line in Laredo 
With a headache and a deputy staring at me through the door 
Well he said "Now how you got across that river alive, I don't know 
But your wife just made your bail so now you're really dead for sure" 

Now my wife, she called my boss and cried so I got my job back 
And the boys down at the plant, they whisper and stare at me 
Yea well my wife can find a lot of little jobs to keep me on the right track 
Well, but that's a small price to pay for a week of living dangerously 

Yeah-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-wee 
That's a small price to pay for a week of living dangerously
