Working long hours I long to get away and find some time for myself, time to do what makes me feel free and time to be with my wife.

Verse 1

I WORK HARD, I PAY MY DUES AND I GET BY

ITS A LONG HARD WEEK, NO 9 – 5 BUT I SURVIVE

WORK AND SLEEP IS ALL I DO IT AINT MUCH A LIFE

WORK AND SLEEP AND DREAM OF BEING FREE

Verse 2

EVERYDAY I SEE THE SUN GO DOWN GO DOWN ON ME

ITS SO LONG GONE BEFORE I HIT THE STREETS

WHEN I GET HOME, I’M SO DAMN TIRED I FALL AS SLEEP

I’M BACK AT WORK BUT I WANT TO BE  HOME 

 Chorus

ROLL ON FRIDAY NIGHT, I HOPE I’M NOT TOO TIRED FOR THE WEEKEND

GOING TO DOWN SOME BEERS, GOING TO SPEND SOME TIME WITH YOU

WANT TO HAVE SOME FUN, IT’S ALL I WANT TO DO ITS THE WEEKEND

WANT TO LIVE IT LIKE, REMEMBER HOW IT USED TO BE

Verse 3

KISS ME ON THE LIPS AND TELL ME THAT I’M STILL YOUR MAN

SHOW A LITTLE LOVE A LITTLE BIT AFFECTION IS ALL I WANT

LETS GO OUT TONIGHT LETS PARTY LIKE WE’RE NOT BOTH TIRED

CAUSE I AM FEELING TRAPPED AND I JUST WANT TO GET AWAY 

Verse 4

IM SICK OF BEING TIRED, WORKING JUST TO EARN SOME PAY.

PAYING THE RENT AND THE REST IT GOING OUT FOR FOOD.

I’M FEELING SO DEPRESSED THIS AINT THE PLACE I WANT TO BE.

WHEN THE WEEKEND FINALLY COMES I WANT TO BE SO FAR FROM HERE
