lyrics

We set sail on a Monday
Tuesday was all at sea
Scrubbed the decks on a Wednesday
Thursday locker and key
Friday came to the coastline
Saturday I was ashore
Someday I'll quit this crazy business
And testify the law

Get even, Steven
Go down the line
Come in and get happy
And the sun will shine
Come on the right side
Get off your pride
Come in and get happy
And get satisfied

Met a young girl on a Monday
Tuesday I was in love
Saw her again on a Wednesday
And Thursday just wasn't enough
Friday I gave her a halfpenny
Saturday sat on her knee
Someday I'm gonna have to tell that girl
You're the only boy for me

Get even, Steven
Go down the line
Come in and get happy
And the sun will shine
Come on the right side
Get off your pride
Come in and be happy
And get satisfied

We made love on a Monday
And Tuesday woke up alone
Broke out in a rash on a Wednesday
Thursday I lost a stone
Friday they certified me
Saturday I was in bed
Someday I'm gonna quit this stupid song
And go back home instead

Get even, Steven
Go down the line
Come in and get happy
I wanna make you mine
Come on the right side
Get off your pride
Come in and get happy
And get satisfied (x3)
