Let me just sit down
And relax a minute
Let me tell you about it
Aha, it's Friday
Oh ho, thank God, it's Friday
And I just got paid
Going across town
Gonna pick up my lady
Have a little bit of fun
Just ain't no telling
Where I might end up
You might see me on the east side
Ha, the west side
I'm even going cross the bridge
'Cause I, 'cause I, 'cause I hear
They really get down over there
(Well, well, I)
Owe it to myself
(Well, well, I)
Gonna party
(Well, well, I)
Gonna party
(Well, well, I, well, well, I)
I owe it to myself
(Well, well, I)
Oh, party, party
I'm just living, yeah
(Living for the weekend)
Woo hoo, said I'ma
(Living for the weekend)
I said right now, I'm
(Living for the weekend)
I said this evening
(Living for the weekend)
For the next two days
(Living for the weekend)
Gonna have a real good time
(Living for the weekend)
Gonna have a real, real
Real good time
(Living for the weekend)
Gonna party hard, hard
Come on, y'all
Let's go downtown
Come on, y'all
Let's groove, hey, hey
Monday to Thursday
I'm dead on my feet
Most of the time too tired to eat
When I try to read the paper
I fall fast asleep
But as soon as Friday rolls around
I lay all my weekly burdens down
I put on my glad rags
And paint the town
(Living for the weekend)
Friday night alive
(Living for the weekend)
Said, I'm living for the weekend
(Living for the weekend)
Don't stop when I party down
Party hard, party down
Party hard, party down
Soon as on Monday
Rolls around again
I got to put all that
Partying to an end
Got to solve that same old grind
With those five day week
Sometimes, I get frustrated
Through the day, take off early
And a cut in pay
At the time, I don't really care
Because I done took
All that I can bear
(Living for the weekend)
(Living for the weekend)
(Living for the weekend)
That's when I party down
Party hard, party down
