About Blue Monday

"Blue Monday" is a song originally written by Dave Bartholomew, first recorded in 1953 by Smiley Lewis and issued as a single, in January 1954, on Imperial Records (catalog # 5268). The single, with a slow-rocking beat, features an instrumental electric guitar solo by Lewis. It was later popularized in a recording by Fats Domino in 1956, also on Imperial (catalog # 5417), on which the songwriting credit was shared between him and Bartholomew. Most later versions have credited Bartholomew and Domino as co-writers. The baritone saxophone solo is by Herbert Hardesty. Domino's version was featured in the 1956 film The Girl Can't Help It. It became one of the earliest rhythm and blues songs to make the Billboard magazine pop music charts, peaking at number five and reaching the number one spot on the R&B Best Sellers chart. It reached number 23 on the UK Singles Chart It was included on the 1957 album This Is Fats and the 1959 album Fats Domino sings 12,000,000 Records. The song title was used for a 2006 biography of Domino by Rick Coleman.

Blue Monday, how I hate blue Monday
Got me workin' like a slave all day
Here comes Tuesday, oh hard Tuesday
I'm so tired, I've got no time to play
Here come Wednesday I'm beat to my side
My girl calls, I gotta tell her that I'm out
'Cause Thursday is a hard-workin' day and Friday I get my pay

Saturday morning, oh, Saturday morning
All my tired has gone away
Got my money and my honey
And I'm out on the scene to play
Sunday morning my head is bad
But it's worth it, all the times I had
But I've got to get my rest
'Cause Monday is a mess

Saturday morning, oh, Saturday morning
All my tired has gone away
Got my money and my honey
And I'm out on the scene to play
Sunday morning my head is bad
But it's worth it, all the times I had
But I've got to get my rest
'Cause Monday is a mess
