lyrics

Saving It All For A Saturday

First one up the brickworks will be captain for the afternoon
The car parks been abandoned now the works have been shut down
A taste in moderation, sister slips into a coma
And she wakes with muddy finger marks beneath her new white blouse
And no wonder all the shops are hiring thugs to gyard te doors
It’s not what the came to the country for
They were hoping for a little bit more than this

Underneath the TV set a stain upon the carpet
Barely covered by the VHS that nobody can work
Empty cans of kestrel by the cigarette burned sofa
Now there’s extra medication every evening down the pub
Oh Lord another mouth to feed that no one can afford
One more to fill the lines and numbers

Oh we’re saving it all for a Saturday
All of the family and everybody else
The weekends coming and I won’t be stopping in
All by myself

Almost 50cc of unbridled teen rebellion
When the boys all ride together to the sound of angry bees
Postman flips a finger to the girl upon the corner
Who’s been hanging out her nighty with her fanny in the breeze
On board the number thirty to the other sound of town
You’re one more among the endless faces

Oh we’re saving it all for a Saturday
All of the family and everybody else
The weekends coming and I won’t be stopping in
All by myself
The weekends coming and I won’t be stopping in
All by myself

Clones by starlight
We’ll be home by sunrise

Oh - saving it all for a Saturday
All of the family and everybody else
The weekends coming and I won’t be stopping in
All by myself
Yeah - Oh we’re saving it all for a Saturday
All of the family and everybody else
The weekends coming and I won’t be stopping in
All by myself
The weekends coming and I won’t be stopping in
All by myself
