"Weekend (5 Long Days)" as written by and David Leslie Walls....
Monday comes crashing in and all the world looks grey again
Faces on the train seem grim when yesterday the same were smiling
Another week to kill, another week where time stands still
And shuffling masses feel the chill that comes with their routine
The working scene...

Crawled out of bed and then I turned on MTV again
To watch the same songs I can't stand: they sing of love and being happy
Look there's another one that sounds just like the other one
The video without a song is being a famous whore
Frustrates me more

But at the weekend, well everything will be okay
At the weekend (darling)
At the weekend, I'll tell the world that for five long days I've been wanting to say
(Wanting to say, yeah yeah)

I wanna, I wanna, I wanna ride upon a five mile tide of surprise and oblivion
Or rain or shine I'm waiting at the frontline
I need it, I need it, like you would not believe it
And I'll be dying to change, I'll be dying change my ways
'Cos I've been dry for 5 long days

I'll put the world to right, I'll fly like Superman in flight
I'll eat the day and drink the night and everyone will be there with me
This week I've seen it through on auto-pilot just like you
And now there's nothing left to do 'cept anything at all
Let's hit the wall

But at the weekend, well everything will be okay
At the weekend (darling)
At the weekend, I'll tell the world that for five long days I've been wanting to say
(Wanting to say, yeah yeah)

I wanna, I wanna, I wanna ride upon a five mile tide of surprise and oblivion
Or rain or shine I'm waiting at the frontline
I need it, I need it, like you would not believe it
And I'll be dying to change, I'll be dying change my ways
'Cos I've been dry for 5 long days

At the weekend, baby baby at the weekend
At the weekend, at the weekend
At the weekend, baby baby at the weekend
At the weekend… rock, rock, rock, roll

But at the weekend, well everything will be okay
At the weekend (darling)
At the weekend, I'll tell the world that for five long days I've been wanting to say
(Wanting to say, yeah yeah)

I wanna, I wanna, I wanna ride upon a five mile tide of surprise and oblivion
Or rain or shine I'm waiting at the frontline
I need it, I need it, like you would not believe it
And I'll be dying to change, I'll be dying change my ways
'Cos I've been dry for 5 long days

    General CommentI agree, the Wildhearts are one of the best bands in existence IMHO, and criminally underrated. I can't think of too many songwriters as good as Ginger.

    This one is self-explanatory - people go through the week at work, on autopilot, then live for the weekend where they can go out and have fun.
