   G
   Never on a Sunday when the church is full of people
           D7
   And the bells are ringing in the steeple,
                                   G    D7
   La   La-la-la    La-la    La-la-la...
   
 G                          D7  
1. Oh, you can kiss me on a Mon-day
                                     G
   A Mon-day, a Mon-day is very very good
                           D7
   Or you can kiss me on a Tues-day
                                             G
   A Tues-day, a Tues-day in fact I wish you would
                           D7
   Or you can kiss me on a Wed-nes-day
                                            G
   A Thursday, a Fri-day, and Sat-ur-day is best
                          D7
   But ne-ver ne-ver on a Sun-day
                                                G
   A Sun-day, a Sun-day 'cause that's my day of rest

Chorus: Come   a   -  ny  day and you'll be my guest
                    Am7    D7              G

             Edim   D7    G                     D7
    | 𝄽 Just name   the | day that you like the best

2. You can kiss me on a cool day
                                            G
   A hot day, a wet day which e-ver one you choose
                          D7
   Or try to kiss me on a grey day
                                        G
   A May day, a pay day and see if I re-fuse
                        D7
   And you make it on a bleak day
                                             G
   A freak day, a week day why you can be my guest
                          D7
   But ne-ver ne-ver on a Sun-day
                                           G
   A Sun-day's the one day I need a day to rest
