Monday morning
Eighteen years of dawning
I said how long
Said how long

It was one dull morning
I woke the world with bawling
I was so sad
They were so glad

I was of the feeling
It was out of control
He said it was
Out of control

Boys and girls
Go to school, and girls
They make children
Not like this one

I was of the feeling
I was out of control
He said it was
Out of control

I was of the feeling
I was out of control
He said it was
Out of control

You’ve been standing
I’ve been waiting
While I’ve gone you said good bye
I would say so
The sky

Out of control
Out of control
Out of control

I fought fate
There's blood at the garden gate
The man said childhood
It's in his childhood

One day I'll die
The choice will not be mine
Will it be too late
You can't fight fate

I was of the feeling
It was out of control
Hey said it was
It was out of control

Thank you
