"Living for the Weekend" as written by and Richard Archer....
Oh, I've been working all week and I'm tired.
I've been working all week and I'm... just living for the weekend.

Hey hey, I got some money, I just got paid, got some money and I can't wait for 6 O'Clock,
I'm outta' heeeere

End of the night there's a club and a glass got my name on.
Run down my street I have glass in my feet, I can't fight it........

I did overtime, working is such a bind, got some money to spend, living for the weekend,
When it gets too much, I live for the rush, got some money to spend, living for the weekend!

Man! Yeah, I've been working all week and I'm shot, yeah, I've been working all week for what?
Just living for the weekend.

Ahhh. Shit. Saw my girl and I had a fit. Saw my neighbours and all it is...
No she can't come in, she caught her voice.
Slip round the back, at the back there's a place where there's a window.
Drop to the floor, can't risk eyes through the door, I got a family.....

I did overtime, working is such a bind, got some money to spend, living for the weekend,
When it gets too much, I live for the rush, got some money to spend, living for the weekend!

Can you feel it? Feel the pressure? Rising?

Pressure
Pressure
Pressure, Pressure, Pressure
Feel the pressure
Pressure
Pressure
Pressure

Living for the weekend
Living for the weekend
Living for the weekend
Living for the weekend
Living for the weekend
Living for the weekend
Living for the weekend
Oh, Living for the weekend

Going out tonight
Going out tonight
Girl, with you and I going out tonight [Repeat: x4]

    General Commenti can't believe noone's commented on it, so I will.Great song, once again the fi have got working Britain right - local indie thus being proved. It is a great song to dance to at indie clubs.

    General CommentAwesome song... Not sure why the lyrics are written like that but whatever. You would have thought it would be a song you get sick of after a while, but it's very listenable.

    General Commentthis band is so talented...i feel like they have been unfairly pegged by the stupid uk music press, saying ridiculous shit like "a shout from below the breadline" crap. every song is amazing...this is like what franz ferdinand could have been like if they didn't go to art school.

    General Commentwrong lyrics....................
    they should be:

    ahh, shit! so my clothes are all counterfeit
    so my name isn't on the list
    'no you can't come in, so go home boys'
    slip round the back
    at the back there's a cracked toilet window
    drop to the floor, covers us through the door
    i'm on fire!

    WORKING ALL THE TIME
    work is such a bind
    got some money to spend
    living by the weekend
    when it gets to much -
    i live by the rush
    got some money to spend
    just living by the weekend!

    i think...................................................................

    General CommentI think this song has many hidden meanings. Maybe a hint at finding a spiritual pathway in life, and its deep and meaningful undertones really emphasises how RUBBISH this band are!!!! The line "saw my girl and had a fit" is the only line i can really understand in this song - as the lead singer looks like he is seriously having a fit when he's on stage!! They suck. Thank you please.

    General Commentum Pammy1978, that's what you really are! living in 1978, get over you're stupid self and see that Hard-fi says it like it is. Ever had one of those crazy ass weeks when work drags on? and the weekend is just such a welcome? honey, be a little less ignorant.
