"Saturday Morning" as written by Mark O. Everett and Kelly Logsdon....
Saturday morning
Who's gonna play with me?
Six in the morning, baby
I got a long, long day ahead of me

The parents are sleeping soundly
The neighbors are dead as wood
I'm getting up and coming over
We gotta rock the neighborhood

Nothing's ever gonna happen 'round here
If we don't make it happen
Sleep away the day if you want to
But I got something that I gonna do

It's Saturday morning
And this ain't the place for me
I'm giving you warning, baby
We got a whole big, fat world to see

Nothing's ever gonna happen 'round here
If we don't make it happen
Sleep away the day if you want to
But I got something that I gonna do

It's Saturday morning
And who's gonna play with me?
Six in the morning, baby
I got a long, long day ahead of me

Saturday morning
Saturday morning

    General Commenthaving run a radio show on saturday mornings on a sleepy campus in the depths of maine, this song was a perfect morning kick to get into the groove of radio, and basically summs up that feeling of bored restlessness that sneaks into the sole every now and again.
    who's gunna play with me?

    General CommentI love this song! It honestly has to be the happiest, most optimistic song ever written!

    I think it's pretty self explanatory. He's saying that whilst everyone else is wasting their time not doing things with their lives (sleeping away in bed), he'd rather be out doing things and being productive. It's a real "come on and do something, dammit" song.

    General Commentyeah through the image of the kid waking up, enthousiastic about everything while being innocent
    E insites us on looking on at the bright side.
    and..
    well let's go crazy let's get nuuuuts..
    you don't like the world you're living in
    but are we gonna let the elevator bring us down?
    oh noOo let's goooO
