"Thursday" as written by and Mark Sandman....
We used to meet every Thursday Thursday
Thursday in the afternoon
For a couple of beers and a game of pool
We used to go to a motel a motel

A motel across the street
And the name of the motel was the Wagon Wheel
Oh
One day she said come on come on she said

Why don't you come back to my house
She said my husband's out of town
You know he's gone till the end of the month
Well I was just so nervous so nervous

You know I couldn't really quite relax
'Cause I was never really quite sure when her
Husband was coming back
Sure one of the neighbors yea one of the neighbors

One of the neighbors that saw my car
And they told her yea they told her
I think they know who you are
Well her husband he's a violent man a very violent and jealous man

Now I have to leave this town I got to leave while I still can
We should have kept it every Thursday Thursday
Thursday in the afternoon
For a couple of beers and a game of pool

We should have kept it every Thursday Thursday
Thursday in the afternoon
For a couple of beers and a game of pool
She was pretty good too

    General CommentI'll gladly make the first post.

    I've had this cd for a while now and have barely ever listened to it (maybe once as background music). The other day I made a mix with a song for everyday of the week and used this one because it was the only song I had with Thursday in the title. Now I love this song and will be giving the album a good, hard listen. I'm well excited.

    As for the song, I think the story speaks for itself.

    My InterpretationI always thought the ending of this was really ominous, the way he pointedly refers to her in the past tense, like the husband killed her or something.
