Friday On My Mind


 

Written by Vanda & Young and performed brilliantly by their band The Easybeats, there's something about Bowie's version from his Pinups album that has creeps into my mind at the end of many work weeks.

I'll change that scene one day. 

 
Monday morning feels so bad
Everybody seems to nag me
Coming Tuesday I feel better
Even my old man looks good
 
Wednesday just don't go
Thursday goes too slow
I've got Friday on my mind

Gonna have fun in the city
Be with my girl, she's so pretty
She looks fine tonight
She is out of sight to me
 
Tonight I'll spend my bread, 
Tonight I'll lose my head, 
Tonight I've got to get to night
Monday I'll have Friday on my mind

Do the five day grind once more
There is nothing else that bugs me
More than working for the rich man
Hey! I'll change that scene one day
 
Today I might be mad, 
Tomorrow I'll be glad
'Cause I'll have Friday on my mind

Gonna have fun in the city
Be with my girl, she's so pretty
She looks fine tonight.
She is out of sight to me
 
Tonight I'll spend my bread, 
Tonight I'll lose my head, 
Tonight I've got to get to night
Monday I'll have Friday on my mind
