Saturday night's a time to party

To laugh and drink rock on the hearty

Boisterous in spirit and full of vigour

Celebrate the eve with wine and rigour

A time to recollect to tell a joke

To knock back a beer to have a smoke

To swagger in your party frock

To sing and dance to joke and rock

And roll along from pub to pub

And then on from club to club

To jig and boogy and yell out loud

To pick the scene, observe the crowd

To find a love, perhaps to score

To forget ones woes to toil no more

And celebrate with party cheer

With friends aplenty far and near

A time to relax hand out and play

For of all the nights it's Saturday
