"I don't like mondays", Tori Amos

"I don't like mondays" est une chanson des Boomtown Rats, écrite par Bob Geldof. Le 29 janvier 1979, Brenda Ann Spencer, 16 ans, fait feu sur un terrain de jeu scolaire. Elle tue deux adultes, et blesse huit enfants et un agent des forces de l'ordre. Interrogée par un journaliste sur les raisons de son acte, elle répond:

"I don't like mondays."

 

La chanson de Bob Geldof fait partie de la culture populaire anglo-saxonne. Elle a été reprise de nombreuses fois, et j'aime particulièrement celle de Tori Amos.

 

 

Tori Amos I don't like mondays

 

 

The silicon chip inside her head

Gets switched to overload

And nobody’s gonna go to school today

She’s gonna make them stay at home

And daddy doesn’t understand it

He always said she was good as gold

And he can see no reasons

'Cos there are no reasons

What reason do you need to be show-ow-ow-ow-own?

 

Tell me why

I don’t like Mondays

Tell me why

I don’t like Mondays

Tell me why 

I don’t like Mondays

I wanna shoo-oo-woo-woo-woo-oot the whole day down

 

The Telex machine is kept so clean 

And it types to a waiting world

And mother feels so shocked

Father’s world is rocked

And their thoughts turn to their own little girl

Sweet 16 ain’t that peachy keen

Now that ain’t so neat to admit defeat

They can see no reasons

'Cuz there are no reasons

What reasons do you need?

Oh Oh oh whoa whoa

 

Tell me why

I don’t like Mondays

Tell me why

I don’t like Mondays

Tell me why 

I don’t like Mondays

I wanna shoo-oo-oo-woo-woo-oot 

The whole day down, down, down, shoot it all down

 

And all the playing's stopped in the playground now

She wants to play with the toys a while

And school's out early and soon we'll be learning

And the lesson today is how to die

And then the bullhorn crackles

And the captain tackles

(With the problems of the how's and why's)

And he can see no reasons

'Cos there are no reasons

What reason do you need to die, die?

Oh Oh Oh

 

Tell me why

I don’t like Mondays

Tell me why

I don’t like Mondays

Tell me why

I don’t like 

I don’t like (Tell me why)

I don’t like Mondays

Tell me why

I don’t like

I don’t like (Tell me why)

I don’t like Mondays

Tell me why

I don't like Mondays

I wanna shoo-oo-oo-woo-woo-woot the whole day down
