I’ve noticed quite a few strong learners still have some trouble remembering or pronouncing the days of the week. Here’s a catchy tune from the 90s to help you remember.
“Friday I’m In Love”
I don’t care if Monday’s blue Tuesday’s grey and Wednesday too Thursday I don’t care about you It’s Friday I’m in love Monday you can fall apart Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart Thursday doesn’t even start It’s Friday I’m in love Saturday wait And Sunday always comes too late But Friday never hesitate… I don’t care if Monday’s black Tuesday, Wednesday heart attack Thursday never looking back It’s Friday I’m in love Monday you can hold your head Tuesday, Wednesday stay in bed Or Thursday watch the walls instead It’s Friday I’m in love Saturday wait And Sunday always comes too late But Friday never hesitate… Dressed up to the eyes It’s a wonderful surprise To see your shoes and your spirits rise Throwing out your frown And just smiling at the sound And as sleek as a shriek Spinning round and round Always take a big bite It’s such a gorgeous sight To see you in the middle of the night You can never get enough Enough of this stuff It’s Friday I’m in love
