Each week I put my clothes on the same way
Each week I put my hair up the same way
Each night I laugh and cry the same way

Each night I sleep the same way
The only thing that's different
Is I'm going to the theatre
Tonight

No fun in sitting alone reading a book
No fun in watching some broads in a show
No fun in sitting doing some work
No fun in watching them fight

Going to the theatre
On a Saturday night
I'm gonna have some fun
Tonight

Going to the theatre
On a Saturday night
And I'm gonna chase some chicks around the isles
I'm going to the theatre
On a Saturday night
And I'm gonna catch me some great disease
I'm going to the theatre
On a Saturday night
And I'm gonna become a great disgrace

Hey, who's that in the booth watching over us
Hey, is that Henry's mom coming to get him
Look at him hide
Look over there it's Billy and Sally
Their faces are all wet
Who knows where they've been?
Who knows where they've been?

I hope tonight never ends
I hope tomorrow never comes
I hope tonight never ends
So long as I've got my black cape on tonight

    General CommentThis song gets me every time.

    I love how it starts out somber, and then gets uplifting and sort of spritely.

    It just about good friends breaking through that incorrigible boredom of youth. And that immortality we all feel, whilst not believing that hardships will occur, or at the very least, not caring.

    "And I'm going to catch me some great disease...
    And I'm going to become a great disgrace..."

    It's a wonderful song. I love Audra. I can't believe there's only one song by them on here. :(
