Weekend Song
From the album:
Streetlife Serenade

This backbreakin’, boneshakin’, bellyachin’,
Hardworkin’, two more hours to go
Yes, it’s keepin’ me alive doin’ nine to five
And I got nothin’ to show
Pretty soon I’ll be leavin’, with the wages
I’m receiving, but I know it’s gonna be alright
Come on, babe, and take me away
We got some money to spend tonight
Pick me up at the station, meet me at the train
Have a meal and a shower and a change of clothes
I can’t afford a vacation, but I can take the strain
Long as I can be with you, find a way to burn it as quickly as I earn it

And it’s backbreakin’, boneshakin’, bellyachin’,
Hardworkin’, two more hours to go
Seven long years for the same corporation and
I ain’t got nothin’ to show
And tonight when I’m leavin’ I’ll be just breakin’
Even but i know it’s gonna be alright
I shake off my blues when you put on your shoes
We got some money to spend tonight

I don’t wanna stand here and sound accusin’
Ev’rybody does their share of losin’
If I’m gonna lose it I might as well be doin’ it right

And it’s backbreakin’, boneshakin’, bellyachin’,
Hardworkin’, two more hours to go
It’s keepin’ me alive doin’ nine to five
And I got nothin’ to show
And tonight when I’m leavin’ I’ll be just breakin’
Even but I know it’s gonna be alright
Come on, babe, and take me away
We got some money to spend tonight
Come on, babe, and take me away
Got some money to spend tonight
