One Friday evenin'
What a feelin', feel like singin'
Tired of workin', my mind is buzzin'
Feel like dancin' yes I do

But you gotta make the best of life while you're young
Good people, weekend
Do just what you want to do, weekend
When those workin' days are through
Weekend, weekend, weekend
Weekend, weekend
You know it's time to get away, weekend
I want to hear ev'rybody say 
Weekend, weekend, weekend

Saturday night feelin' just right 
Makin' new friends, lazy Sunday
Every Monday ends my weekend, yes it does
But you gotta make the best of life while you're young
Listen people, weekend
Party down with all your friends, weekend
It's party, hearty time again
Weekend, weekend, weekend
Weekend, weekend
Spendin' all my hard-earned pay, weekend
With crazy nights and lazy days
Weekend, weekend, weekend

But you believe me right now, weekend
Watchin' all the people play, weekend
I want to hear ev'rybody say 
Weekend, weekend, weekend
Weekend, weekend
Do what you want to do, weekend
When those workin' days are through 
Weekend, weekend, weekend
Ah you gotta make the best of life while you're young
Right now, weekend
Do what you want to do, weekend
When those workin' days are through
Weekend, weekend, weekend
Yeah weekend
