Lyrics of

Black Friday

Play the MIDI file View the transcriptions
When Black Friday comes I'll stand down by the door
And catch all the grey men as they dive from the fourteenth floor.
When Black Friday comes I'll collect everything I'm owed,
And before my friends find out I'll be on the road.

When Black Friday falls you know it's got to be,
Don't let it fall on me.

When Black Friday comes I'll fly down to Muswellbrook,
Gonna strike all the big red words from my little black book.
Gonna do just what I please, gonna wear no socks and shoes,
With nothing to do but feed all the Kangaroos.

When Black Friday comes I'll be on that hill,
You know I will


When Black Friday comes I'm gonna dig myself a hole, 
Gonna lay down in it till I satisfy my soul
Gonna let the world pass by me, the Archbishop gonna sanctify me
And if he don't come across I' m gonna let it roll.

When Black Friday comes I'm gonna stake my claim,
I guess I'll change my name.
