Couple Days Off Lyrics

by Huey Lewis & The News

Yeah alright

I like my job and I don't mind the work
But eleven out of twelve is bound to hurt
The pay's pretty good and the benefits are fine
But I got a little girl and I wanna make her mine

Don't mind telling you I get a little mad
To get a bit ahead takes all the time I have
Don't misunderstand me, I'm not getting soft
All I want is a couple days off

Yeah can't wait for the weekend
Ah baby just can't wait no

I don't need another high song to sing
I don't need a shiny new diamond ring
I don't need to meet nobody else
I just need a little time for myself

'Cause I'm only human, I'm no machine
I need a little loving only you know what I mean
Don't misunderstand me, I'm not getting soft
All I want is a couple days off

Yeah, just a couple days
Let me catch my breath

Thank God for the weekend

Ah back to the old grind

I don't need another long coffee break
I've had as much coffee as a man can take
I need to change my disposition change my point of view
I need time to figure out what I wanna do

Believe me when I tell you it gets a little rough
We work a little harder but it never is enough
I'm not afraid to say I'm a total loss
All I want is a couple days off

Just a couple days
Oh yes sir

Time to wait for the weekend
