Lyrics 

I don’t care if Monday’s blue

Tuesday’s grey and Wednesday too

Thursday, I don’t care about you

It’s Friday, I’m in love

Monday you can fall apart

Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart

Oh, Thursday doesn’t even start

It’s Friday, I’m in love

Saturday, wait

And Sunday always comes too late

But Friday, never hesitate

I don’t care if Monday’s black

Tuesday, Wednesday, heart attack

Thursday, never looking back

It’s Friday, I’m in love

Monday you can hold your head

Tuesday, Wednesday, stay in bed

Or Thursday watch the walls instead

It’s Friday, I’m in love

Saturday, wait

And Sunday always comes too late

But Friday, never hesitate

Dressed up to the eyes

It’s a wonderful surprise

To see your shoes and your spirits rise

Throw out your frown

And just smile at the sound

Sleek as a shriek, spinning ’round and ’round

Always take a big bite

It’s such a gorgeous sight

To see you eat in the middle of the night

You can never get enough

Enough of this stuff

It’s Friday, I’m in love

I don’t care if Monday’s blue

Tuesday’s grey and Wednesday too

Thursday, I don’t care about you

It’s Friday, I’m in love

Monday you can fall apart

Tuesday, Wednesday, break my heart

Thursday doesn’t even start

It’s Friday, I’m in love

Do-do, do-do, do-do, do

Do-do, do-do, do-do, do

(Oh, oh, whoa, whoa)
