Off of Harry Nilsson's "Sandman." I've written out the lyrics, since I couldn't find them anywhere online. But there's a part that always got me, where Nilsson quotes a Mother Goose poem, "Monday's Child is Fair of Face."
He says, "Monday's child is full of face."
I don't know what that's about. My friend has this album on vinyl and I'm pretty sure that the lyrics on the inside of the album cover say "full of grace." So that's what I put.

here's why i did not go to work today
thursday's such a crazy lazy day
thursday has its own peculiar way
of saying hey
sometimes thursday almost
makes you want to run away
thursday's such a crazy lazy day

yeah, thursday's such a crazy lazy day
let's go have a picnic
thursday's such a crazy lazy day
hope it doesn't rain
when i'm feeling thursday
i go and have a drink
if thursday was a boat
i'd let it sink

i did it on monday
i tried it on tuesday
wednesday's simply not my cup of tea
thank heaven it's friday
thank the lord for the weekend
but thursday is such a crazy lazy day

they say monday's child is full of grace
tuesday's child is fair of face
thursday's child has far to go
and it's no wonder
when the week becomes a rat race
you can bet win, show, or place
but never bet on thursday
cause god's not on its case

thursday's such a crazy lazy day
don't get me wrong
it's just that thursday's twice as long as it should be
it's twice as long
monday's tuesdays, weekends, fridays
don't get in my way
but thursday's such a crazy lazy day

monday is a blues day
that goes for tuesday
wednesday's just the middle of the week, yeah
friday's just another payday
the weekend's just another heyday
but thursday's surreptitiously unique

that's why i didn't go to work today
thursday's got its own peculiar way
of saying hey
sometimes thursday makes you want to run away
thursday's such a crazy lazy day
thursday's such a crazy lazy day
