Somebody's Saturday night

View the lyrics

Somebody‚??s Saturday night seems pleased to meet you
Slouched in a booth at Pamela‚??s Pistol Dawn
Drink drink cigarette talkie talk drink drink smoke smoke cigarette
Up to the room with the beddie-bye goin‚?? on

Somebody‚??s Saturday night says oh I get it
You want to go where no man‚??s ever been
Down in the coal mine goin‚?? down turn around push push turn around
Digging up the gold and carrying it back again

                       BbMaj7         Fmaj7
She looked good

In the available light

               D7sus4    C7sus4                            Gm7(3/6)    <-----(D E G/G)
She was some                  body‚??s Saturday night

                           BbMaj7         Fmaj7
She said it ain‚??t wrong

But it‚??s not quite right

                D7sus4    C7sus4                           
Guess it‚??s some                body‚??s Saturday night

Somebody‚??s Saturday night says hey it‚??s raining
You wouldn‚??t kick a good girl out on a night like this
He says she says the demon in me says just you watch me
Pucker up darling for my legendary good night kiss

She‚??s no fool
But she‚??s none too bright
She‚??s just somebody‚??s Saturday night
She stays cool
If not watertight
Such is somebody‚??s Saturday night

Only a girl ‚??

One more is up and gone

Leaving nobody

To blame the whole thing on ‚?? baby

Somebody‚??s Saturday night is walking in the moonlight
Playing on the beads of her beatnik rosary
Thinking: Nobody gives it exactly the way that you want it
No one ever gets it with a money-back guarantee

But I been born with the second sight
Now I‚??m looking in the mirror at somebody‚??s Saturday night
I get along
In fact I do all right
Being somebody‚??s Saturday night
