Eight Days a Week Lyrics
Hope you need my love babe just like I need you
Hold me, love me
Hold me, love me
Ain't got nothing but love, babe
Eight days a week
Love you every day girl, always on my mind

Monday = 1
Tesday = 2
Thursday = 4
Fri = 5
Sat = 6
Sun = 7
Mon = 8
Mon to Mon = 8 days
Monday to Monday, in practice, is 8 days.
If you love girl starting Monday morning, she'll remember that Monday and she'll want the following Monday to be same... It makes sense to her.
It may be that 8 days is the "girl's week"... not strictly technically true BUT true from her point of view of being together with you.
Easier to understnad if you sleep with a girl starting, say, Sunday morning. She'll want to be with you the following Sunday morning too. And Sunday is a better example than Monday. If you sleep with her Sunday, then next Sunday will be the same. Logical, since work starts Monday. You wouldn't blow her off Saturday at midnight. You'd spend the following Sunday with her.
Thus... 8 days, Sunday inclusively. It's an INCLUSIVE week... it's a girls idea of a week. A romantic week.

The band was geting driven somewhere( I believe it was after a concert) they got into the car being stressed Ringo says I've been working eight days a week. I think Paul and John both wrote the song off of that.

In 1964 the Beatles had some hits on the charts,but there was a brief envelope of time when they were able to walk around the (un-touristed) neighborhoods in comparative anonymity...they enjoyed taking the [London]
tube train to some remote stations to do so.
Once in the neighborhood of Cockfosters',John and Paul noticed a sign in a shop window which was very rare for that place and time:it read,
"Open Seven Days A Week".They decided to write a song about it; John suggested, "Let's call the song 'I'll Love You Seven Days A Week'...yeh!...Paul said, "Wait a minute! Why don't we write,'I Love You EIGHT Days Week'...That's never been done, nobody could copy it,and it will be a #1 hit!"(which of course it was)
...to which John replied,"You've topped me again...you fucker!"

Even though his girlfriend might not love him the way he loves her he has got nothing but love for her 8 Days a week

it means that you love your woman and 7 days a week is not enough. Hence the lyrics "eight days a week is not enough to show i care"

I think that they lobe some girl so much that she can't believe them so they are telling her that she is always on their mind. They are thinking too much about her, almost the whole week and there's only 7 days a week so they are thinking about her so much like there's 8 days a week...
