It was on a Monday Morning that the airconditioner broke
The temperature was forty plus it really was no joke
So down we went to Fabegas to try and sort a deal
They said "Deliver Tuesday?" and so the deal was sealed.
Oh it all makes money for the electricals superstore.
It was on a Tuesday morning the delivery van called round
They lugged two parcels out the back and left them on the ground
So are you coming in the house to put it all together?
Sorry, mate, that's not our job, you'll have to call a plumber
Oh it all wastes time on the delivery driver's round
It was on a Wednesday morning that the installer came to call
He was a part-time pest-controller - had no air-con skills at all
He bodged it and he banged it and when the concrete failed
He left it on the balcony suspended by a nail
It's much more fun than killing cockroaches all day.
It was on a Thursday morning that we dragged the poor man back
Do you really think we're going to let you leave it all like that?
So he grumbled and he cursed but then he did it right at last
Then put his elbow through the window which was how he broke the glass
Oh it all makes work for the working man to do
It was on a Friday morning that the glazier turned up here
He'd brought a patterned, reeded glass although we'd ordered clear
He came back in the afternoon and siliconed in the pane
It ippsed down all the evening and in came all the rain
On Saturday and Sunday they do no work at all
So it will be on a Monday morning that...
..I'm going to go down to Jumbo, get some linseed oil putty or, better
still some butyl rubber putty as recommended in uk.d-i-y and bloomin'
well do the job myself
