Let me just sit down
And relax a minute
Let me tell you about ut

A ha, 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'm-a
(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...
