"Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting)" as written by Travis Barker, Tim Armstrong and Rob / Aston....
It's getting late have you seen my mates
Ma tell me when the boys get here
It's seven o'clock and I want to rock
Want to get a belly full of beer

My old man's drunker than a barrel full of monkeys
And my old lady she don't care
My sister looks cute in her braces and boots
A handful of grease in her hair

Oh, don't give us none of your aggravation
We had it with your discipline
Oh, Saturday night's alright for fighting
Get a little action in

Get about as oiled as a diesel train
Gonna set this dance alight
'Cause Saturday night's the night I like
Saturday night's alright alright alright, ooh

Well they're packed pretty tight in here tonight
I'm looking for a dolly who'll see me right
I may use a little muscle to get what I need
I may sink a little drink and shout out she's with me

A couple of the sound that I really like
Are the sounds of a switchblade and a motorbike
I'm a juvenile product of the working class
Whose best friend floats in the bottom of a glass, oh

Don't give us none of your aggravation
We had it with your discipline
Saturday night's alright for fighting
Get a little action in

Get about as oiled as a diesel train
Gonna set this dance alight
'Cause Saturday night's the night I like
Saturday night's alright alright alright, ooh

Oh, don't give us none of your aggravation
We had it with your discipline
Saturday night's alright for fighting
Get a little action in

Get about as oiled as a diesel train
Gonna set this dance alight
`Cause Saturday night's the night I like
Saturday night's alright alright alright, ooh

Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, Saturday,
Saturday night's alright

Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, Saturday,
Saturday night's alright

Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, Saturday,
Saturday night's alright, ooh

    General CommentThis song rocks! It's the most ass-kicking thing Elton ever recorded. My only bummer: I always thought the refrain said, "Girl, I'm gonna come on like a diesel train," and I thought that was such a great image, only to find those aren't the real words! I still sing it my way though.

    BTW, for those who are non-Brits, "braces" are our "suspenders," not metal bands on her teeth.

    General CommentThis song kicks godly amounts of ass. I listen to it when I need to get pumped up for something. Be it a night out drinking, hanging with friends, or just trying to get with the girl I like ;)

    General Commenti love this song, it has great energy...lol, it's rare that i rock out to a song with piano in it. :-) this is the first time i've read the lyrics, and i'm a bit put off by the "I may use a little muscle to get what I need" line, lol, but hey...elton can do no wrong.

    General CommentBernie said this is the first truly English (his home town) inspired song. (All the rest were inspired by his new found love for the American West)

    General Commentwow thanks law4 i really didn't know that about braces. BTW: Elton didn't write these lyrics emobettyrocket, even though that comment was like 4 years ago haha, Bernie Taupin did, so Elton literally did no harm with these lyrics, unless you were to hold him responsible for singing another person's lyrics.
