Rock Lyrics Vol. 12 – Friday

Alright! It’s Friday! TGIF and all that. I’ve been waiting for today impatiently. This entry into my Weekday series of posts is going to blow your mind.

As soon as anyone mentions Friday in a music sense, you immediately think of Rebecca Black. Love her or hate her, that’s what you think of. With over 100 MILLION views of her video, you can’t be blamed. However, the song ‘Friday’ has an old and esteemed pedigree that will surprise you! A very knowledgeable gentleman will fill you in with all the details and surprising facts at the beginning of the video. I was astounded.

Also, keep an eye on who announces the band in the video! NCIS fans will find this quite ducky. (ATTN: the volume increases a lot after intro talk)

Friday

The Byrds

7am, waking up in the morning
Gotta get dressed, gotta go downstairs
Gotta have my bowl, gotta have my cereal
Seein’ everything, the time is goin’
Tickin’ on and on, everybody’s rushin’
Gotta get down to the bus stop
Gotta catch my bus, gotta see my friends
I see my friends

Kickin’ in the front seat
Sittin’ in the back seat
Gotta make my mind up
Which seat can I take?

It’s Friday, Friday
Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend
Friday, Friday
Gettin’ down on Friday
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend

7:45, we’re drivin’ on the highway
Cruisin’ so fast, I want time to fly
Fun, fun, think about fun
You know what it is
I got this, and you got this
My friend is by my side
I got this, and you got this
Now you know it

It’s Friday, Friday
Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend
Friday, Friday
Gettin’ down on Friday
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend

Live Long And Prosper

The Upcoming Week

For the rock song lyrics project I am doing, there will be two main themes in the upcoming week:

  • Songs about the life of a rock star, as written by rock stars
  • Songs about the days of the week

There will be one or two surprises in both series, but I was most surprised by the life of a rock star tunes. As I told you in this post, I rarely listen to the lyrics of a song, so I was totally taken aback when I researched songs for this series. “That’s what this song is about?!? Who knew?” Well, people who listen to lyrics knew. I didn’t.  😳

As for the days of the week, some songs will probably pop into your head automatically … say, for instance, Monday, Friday and Saturday. You may be surprised that I didn’t go with some obvious choices. You’ll have to wait and see! I’m starting the week off with Monday, because for me that’s when the week starts. And because I really like the upcoming Sunday post and I want to save it for last. It’s fun!

I may throw in a random post here or there as well as these themed series. For instance, today we are going out to Shaw’s Maple Syrup & Pancake House (along with several thousand other people, I’m sure) and I’ll take some photographs and make a post about the trip. Life goes on.

Live Long And Prosper!
