Monday Nights At The Retreat Hotel

from When I Was On The Moon by Charles Jenkins



5 Monday Nights At The Retreat Hotel

On Monday nights I wonder
Who is coming under
Out of the rain and thunder like me?

Tuesdays are best forgotten
And so I do my washing
Separating colours and cottons naturally

Wednesdays are for the gamblers
The lovelorn ramblers
The emotional baggage handlers lost at sea

The rest of the week plays out down a familiar path
I do a bit of shopping and on Sundays I draw a bath

So Mondays are for the winners
And very clean folk singers
The saints and the sinners
The bar flies the beginners
Stretched across the front bar like me
At the Retreat Hotel
