Lyrics

(Folk song)

Today is Monday, today is Monday,
Monday wash day,
All you hungry brothers,
We wish the same to you.

Today is Tuesday, today is Tuesday,
Tuesday string beans, Monday wash day,
All you hungry brothers,
We wish the same to you.

Today is Wednesday, today is Wednesday,
Wednesday soup, Tuesday string beans, Monday wash day,
All you…

Today is Thursday, today is Thursday,
Thursday roast beef…

Today is Friday, today is Friday,
Friday fish…

Today is Saturday, today is Saturday,
Saturday pay day…

Today is Sunday, today is Sunday,
Sunday church…

Recorder Notes D, G, A, B, C, D’

  1. Thanks for posting this! My adult kids sang this when they were small and last night none of us could remember what went with Wed. It was driving us nuts!

  2. I learned this song in grade school many years ago (I am 71). The line “All you hungry brothers” was taught to us as “All the salt and pepper”. The song came to my mind but I couldn’t remember exactly which food item went on each day. Now I know! Thanks!
