Saturday you woke me up from a dream
Torn out of the pages of a magazine

REPEAT #1:
You got to play tough, my love (whoa)
You got to play cool (whoa)
You got to play tough, my love
When you play me for a fool
(When you play me for a...)

Saturday you woke me up into a drag
Peaches in the creases of a plastic bag

REPEAT #1

When you play me for a fool
A fool
A fool
When you play me for a...

Saturday is not the ideal day to break up
Don't you know it takes a little time to wake up

REPEAT #1

REPEAT #1

(For a fool
You fool
You fool
When you play me for a fool)

    Memorythis song makes me think of torture. the really sadistic "I do this cause I love you" kind. you know, the good kind.

    General CommentAfter the final verse and the repeated coarse, it goes

    The sun is out
    The sun is out
    come on come on come on come on come on come on
    check it out

    to me this song is about a guy talking to his girlfriend and saying that even though she cheated on him(played him for a fool) she has to act unhurt by the break up. i.e. play tough. And in the last verse he is saying don't be sad, the sun is out, and it's beautiful, come check it out.
