I Never Go To Work – They Might Be Giants

They Might Be Giants - Here Come the 123s

I can’t stop listening to this song. It’s really rather catchy :). ‘Seven Days of the Week (I Never Go To Work)’ is one of the 24 tracks on the CD/DVD combo album by They Might Be Giants, Here Come the 123s.

My first run-in with They Might Be Giants was on the way home from a late night movie back in high school. My friends and I were scanning the radio and heard this wacky song about “triangle man hates particle man” and we were immediately hooked.

Here are the lyrics so you can sing along by yourself or with your kids 😉 –


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!
