On 6 May 1966, the record "2 Day's Monday" (ref R5443) was released in the UK on the Parlophone label. This was the first single from The Scaffold, and it was produced by George Martin of Beatles production fame.
The Scaffold were 3 Liverpudlian artists who came together in the height of sixties Liverpool-mania to write and/or record a variety of off-the-wall material, including a lot of children's stuff, "Thank U Very Much" and their famous anthem, "Lily The Pink", featuring Jack Bruce (Cream), Graham Nash (Hollies and Crosby Stills & Nash), and the pre-Elton John, Reg Dwight.
The trio consisted of:
There seem to be a number of variants of this traditional children's song, which is used to teach days of the week by means of music and repetition. Some versions use different foods for different days. The Scaffold's version drew on the traditional North of England words based partly on daily activities, partly on food.
The verses were:
Today's Monday, today's Monday
Today's Tuesday, today's Tuesday
Wednesday's roast beef
As each day is added, the previous days are repeated in reverse order until all 7 days of the week have been covered.
Today's Sunday, today's Sunday
