Lyrics
FRIDAY NIGHT
Music & Lyrics: Richard H. Jones

She’s down by the corner store waitin’
For the boy she adore, anticipatin’
He got paid; it’s a Friday night
She got love and he got all night
He could be a waste of time, sure
Don’t make it a crime to be out on the town, though
He good-lookin’, a real humdinger
But she got him wrapped around her little finger

Ooh, Friday night, oh, oh… Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday…
Ooh, Friday night, oh, oh, oh. Who needs Saturday?

They're glidin’ across the dance floor
He’s in a trance and she’s got him beggin’ for
More love, oh, than he can take
She’s still movin’ like a rattlesnake
Well now, he’s out of it, she’s into it
She’s up in a cloud and he can’t see through it
She’s shiftin’, he’s siftin’
They’re driftin’ closer and the fog is liftin’

Ooh, Friday night, oh, oh… Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday…
Ooh, Friday night, oh-oh-oh, Saturday’s out of style

They’re drivin’ the long way home and he’s
Tryin’ to ask her what she already knows and she’s
Playin’ games but in a gentle way
Pretends she don’t know what he’s tryin’ to say
He’s pulled up outside her place, now
Looks in her face and she raises one eyebrow
“Yes”, “No”, “Yes”, “OK”, she smile
Do you wanna come up for a while?

Ooh, Friday night, oh, oh… Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday…
Ooh, Friday night, oh, oh, oh. Who needs Saturday?

Thanks, Michael
It was no easy task getting this down in the first place. Thanks to a great guy on the mixer it came out really well, but I haven't seen the DAT we made in ages. It would have been part of a live album but life moved in another direction, as it does. I'm really not good at reviving cassette recordings. I hope someone professional can have a bash or I can get the DAT somehow.

Choubidou choubidou wouap !
It's a pity for the quality of the sound. I like all the brass instruments. With such music, I could dance from Monday morning till Friday night ♫♫♫
