About Saturday's Child

"Saturday's Child" is a popular song, written by David Gates and performed by The Monkees. The song is an electric guitar–based rock song. The song is now widely regarded as one of their best album tracks, with AMG critic Matthew Greenwald saying that it has a "proto-heavy metal guitar riff" and it is "one of the more interesting curios of the early Monkees catalog". The song still gets regular play on Oldies radio stations and has also been covered by several artists. The song is also featured on several "greatest hits" albums by The Monkees. The song was originally the second track on their self-titled debut album The Monkees with Micky Dolenz on lead vocals. The promotional video, which aired during the 26 September 1966 "Monkee vs. Machine" television show, features The Monkees playing around on the beach and having fun with five children (at any one time), in a dune buggy, on a swing set, on slides, on a jungle gym, on a horse, on unicycles, and on Honda Super Cub motorcycles, and hamming it up driving the Monkeemobile around Southern California.

Monday had a sad child
Always feeling low down,
Tuesday had a dream child
She's always on the go
Now I'm in love with Saturday's child
She drives me wild
Gonna spend my time
Makin' sure that Saturday's child is mine.

If you love a Wednesday
You'll live your life apart now
And if you love a Thursday
She's gonna break your heart,
So I'm in love with Saturday's child
She drives me wild
Gonna spend my time
Makin' sure that Saturday's child is mine.

Seven days of the week made to choose from
But only one is right for me
I know that Saturday's got what it takes, babe.
I can tell by the way she looks at me

Friday likes the good life
She'll take you for a ride now
And Sunday makes a good wife
But she wants to be a bride
So I'm in love with Saturday's child
She drives me wild
Gonna spend my time
Makin' sure that Saturday's child is mine.
