THE WEEKEND'S COMING
(Kern/Ratts/Flowers)

Every Thursday night in the checkout line
she grabs some Advil and a couple sparkling wines
every drive home as the week's winding down
he's got to stop by the shop for a bottle of Crown
you better get your act together
all the girls will be lined up soon
just forget about the weather
it's just another bright full moon

Because the weekend's coming
Friday night will soon be here
the weekend's coming
you better get yourself in gear

He rushes home to get a change of clothes
and to splash his face with some new cologne
she's got a new way she's gonna put her make-up on
she's got a new do that they did at the hair salon
They better get themselves in order
because the workweek's nearly done
and we're all standing at the border
of an awful lot of fun

Because the weekend's coming
Friday night will soon be here
the weekend's coming
we gotta get ourselves out of...

Here we go again
get off the street
and take your seat
and welcome to the working week
when Monday morning begins
the workdays never seem to end
but time is soon our friend
when Friday night returns again

He's got a full tank of gas and his window's down
before it's 5:45 he'll be the hell out of town
she's got a good book and a great cabernet
she's headed home and she's going to lock the world away
We all need to have our own space
a little time to pause the game
we all need it in our own way
but we need it just the same

Thank god the weekend's coming
Friday night will soon be here
the weekend's coming
you better get yourself in gear
yeah the weekend's coming
Friday night will soon be here
the weekend's coming
you better get yourself some beer
yeah the weekend's coming
Friday night will soon be here
the weekend's coming
you better get yourself in gear
