about

This song is about the feeling of a Saturday Night out. It's also a tribute to a dear friend, who we spent many nights out with and who provided lots of laughs and great music.

lyrics

VERSE 1

Ain’t got no money, but they’re asking me to pay
Gotta find me a ticket, ‘cos I need to make my way
Through the jungle and out the other side
I’m on a journey, ‘cos it’s my special Saturday Night

CHORUS

Saturday Night, Saturday Night
Saturday Night, Saturday Night
Saturday Night, Saturday Night
Saturday Night, Saturday Night

VERSE 2

Well, this drink tastes finer with every little sip
Gotta sip it all up, to the very last drip
I’m an evening alcoholic, with my slimline gin and tonic
I’m feeling amorous, ‘cos you’re looking so glamorous
In your Saturday Night gear

CHORUS

Saturday Night, Saturday Night
Saturday Night, Saturday Night
Saturday Night, Saturday Night
Saturday Night, Saturday Night

BRIDGE

We got no place to go
We just hang out with our party friends
We like that drinking part of the day
Where we can drink our troubles away

We got no work to do
We just hang, don’t need no permit
We like that drinking part of the day
No need to curb it


VERSE 3
Skinny legs, blonde hair
Belly laughs, ’til we’re gasping for air
Go outside for a cigarette
Can’t take you anywhere

My words are charming
Baby, so disarming
But when I’ve had a few
I’m so hard to subdue,

‘cos you know

CHORUS

Saturday Night, Saturday Night
Saturday Night, Saturday Night
Saturday Night, Saturday Night
Saturday Night, Saturday Night

OUTRO

We got a place to go
We just hang out with our party friends
We like that drinking part of the day
Drink our troubles away
