'Furlough Fridays'

By John Martin

WASHINGTON - There are many ways to deal with a serious situation that's annoying and over which one has no control.

Some people complain. Some people take a vacation. Some people write parodies.

At least, that's what John Martin, a civilian employee at the Pentagon, did - on his own time, of course.

"Furlough Fridays" is a song set in the style of "Monday, Monday" by The Mamas & the Papas.

Martin says, he just wanted to spread some good spirit.

"It's really a serious matter because it's going to affect a lot of people. It's going to hit some people hard. I was thinking what can I do to maybe lighten some spirits, so people can look at it and at least get a laugh," says Martin.

Listen to the song in full (on the right) and follow along with the lyrics below.

"Furlough Fridays"

Furlough Fridays, aren't cool to me
Furlough Fridays, I will be...losing money
On Furlough Fridays, Furlough Fridays you can guarantee
That Friday mornings I won't worry bout a VTC

Furlough Fridays, please go away
Friday, Friday, it used to be my favorite day
Oh, Friday mornings, are gonna be boring without any meetings
On Furlough Fridays I'll stay in bed, and watch Maury

Every other day, every other day
Every other day of the week is fine, yeah.
But whenever Friday comes - but whenever Friday comes
You may find me begging for a nickel and dime

Furlough Fridays, aren't cool to me
Furlough Fridays, I will be ...losing money
Oh, Furlough Fridays, Furlough Fridays are a little scary
Cause come October my wife may no longer be with me

Every other day, every other day
Every other day of the week is fine, yeah.
But whenever Friday comes - but whenever Friday comes
You may find me begging for a nickel and dime

Furlough Fridays, please go away
Friday, Friday, used to be my favorite day
Woah, Furlough Fridays.please go away
Furlough Fridays...please go away
Whew
Furlough Fridays
Whew
Furlough Fridays
