Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ohhh…

Won’t you come see about me?
I’ll be alone, dancing you know it baby

Tell me your troubles and doubts
Giving me everything inside and out and
Love’s strange so real in the dark
Think of the tender things that we were working on

Slow change may pull us apart
When the light gets into your heart, baby

Don’t You Forget About Me
Don’t Don’t Don’t Don’t
Don’t You Forget About Me

Will you stand above me?
Look my way, never love me
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down

Will you recognise me?
Call my name or walk on by
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down, down

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ohhhh…

Don’t you try to pretend
It’s my feeling we’ll win in the end
I won’t harm you or touch your defenses
Vanity and security

Don’t you forget about me
I’ll be alone, dancing you know it baby
Going to take you apart
I’ll put us back together at heart, baby

Don’t You Forget About Me
Don’t Don’t Don’t Don’t
Don’t You Forget About Me

As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
When you walk away

Or will you walk away?
Will you walk on by?
Come on - call my name
Will you call my name?

I say:
La la la…

We are not alone 
'Cause when you cut down to the bone 
We’re really not so different after all 
After all we’re not alone

What do you think the next day in school was like for all the characters including Vernon and Carl?

Well, here’s my idea of what happened to the five kids on Monday.

As for Vernon, I assume he woke up that morning and, after spending the weekend pondering his behavior, he tried to clean up his act. However, only fifteen minutes after he arrived at school, he probably ended up yelling at some slacker kid. And he concluded, “My behavior is perfectly acceptable. There’s nothing I need to change. It’s these kids that need to change.” But later in the day he might’ve spotted two of the kids walking together in the hallway. And that prompted him to realize, once and for all, that he truly needed to change.

As for Carl, he probably went about his day as usual. Maybe feeling a little more accomplished than usual. Maybe respecting the kids’ privacy a little bit more… not to say he was all that nosy before. And maybe one of the kids exchanged a smile with him in the hallway - probably Bender.

Do you think the "I don't like Mondays" scratched graffiti means something? Like, reference to how much it hurt on Monday when they didn't stay The Breakfast Club? Or the nervous anticipation before they found out of they were still alright with each other on Monday? Is there some kind of significance there

I always assumed that it simply represented the aversion teenagers have to school. I never looked at it as a reference to the next Monday, but that’s very observant! Technically, it stemmed from this:

"This refers to a school shooting in 1979 committed by 16-year-old Brenda Spencer. Brenda’s father gave her a rifle for Christmas in 1978. On January 29th, 1979, she used her new rifle to shoot 10 children and staff at Clevelend Elementary School in San Diego, California. The school was across the street from her house, where she was during the incident. She killed the school’s principal and one of the custodians, and injured 8 children. After 6 hours, she was apprehended by police. When asked why she did it, she said “I don’t like Mondays. This livens up the day.” As for selecting her targets, she said “I like red and blue jackets.” As of April, 2009, she is serving a life sentence, and has been denied parole 4 times. At her 2005 parole hearing, she claimed that her father had sexually abused her as a child, and that she was drunk and on PCP at the time of the shooting. According to her, the authorities and her attorney conspired to hide the drug test results. As for remorse, she said at the time “I had no reason for it, and it was just a lot of fun”, “It was just like shooting ducks in a pond”, and “[The children] looked like a herd of cows standing around; it was really easy pickings.” The incident and Spencer’s lack of remorse also inspired the Boomtown Rats’ hit “I Don’t Like Mondays”.”
