Blue Monday People is a funky, blue song from american artist Curtis Mayfield. The track was released in his 1975 album There’s No Place Like America Today

‘Listen while you read!

Some people feel so empty

All their problems and hurt of pride

You make me so happy sweet baby

Love is by my side

Waking up now in the morning

A little morning sigh

Ready not to get it together

We know temptation

Don’t tell the whole story

But you and me baby

We have taken inventory

We Blue Monday people

And I know there’s a few

I don’t know your problems

Only you know how to solve them

When seasons are strong

Sometimes your life don’t get along

But when cupboards are bare

Our love we can share

 

Truth is not the whole question

What is the answer you hide?

The system need us

But it’s trying to mislead us

They know this money don’t feed us

 

Depression ain’t just

Quite what you promised

Won’t you mister be honest

Acting like a child

Sometimes we get wild

Right when the loving is strong

We don’t want to get along

Don’t have to listen to me

One day you may see

We Blue Monday people

Just trying in a strain

Life breaking our hearts

I’m so tired it’s a shame

This hustling affair

Ain’t the way I even care

We’ll be together in spite

Of the crimes of the night

Crimes of the night

Crimes of the night

 

Need someone to see me through

Need someone to comfort me

Sometimes you can let me be

Just let me be

 

Depression Ain’t just

Quite what you promised

Won’t you mister be honest

Acting like a child

Sometimes we get wild

Right when the loving is strong

We don’t want to get along

Don’t have to listen to me

One day you may see

We Blue Monday people

And I know there’s a few

I don’t know your problems

Only you know hot to solve them

When seasons are strong

Sometimes your life don’t get along

But when cupboards are bare

Our love we can share’
