"Friday I'm in Love" as written by Robert James Smith, Perry Bamonte, Simon Gallup, Porl Thompson and Boris Williams....
I don't care if Monday's blue
Tuesday's gray and Wednesday too
Thursday I don't care about you
It's Friday I'm in love

Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday Wednesday break my heart
Thursday doesn't even start
It's Friday I'm in love

Saturday wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday never hesitate

I don't care if Monday's black
Tuesday Wednesday heart attack
Thursday never looking back
It's Friday I'm in love

Monday you can hold your head
Tuesday Wednesday stay in bed
Or Thursday watch the walls instead
It's Friday I'm in love

Saturday wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday never hesitate

Dressed up to the eyes
It's a wonderful surprise
To see your shoes and your spirits rise
Throwing out your frown
And just smiling at the sound
And as sleek as a shriek
Spinning round and round
Always take a big bite
It's such a gorgeous sight
To see you in the middle of the night
You can never get enough
Enough of this stuff
It's Friday
I'm in love

    General CommentIt's about being in love at this exact moment, and nothing else matters. Who cares if the rest of my week, or month, or life, is awful because I'm happy and in love right now.

    General CommentI disagree intoodeep. I think what is going on is he is being hurt by a girl quite a bit "throughout the week"...not so much literally but more in a sense that even though it is the majority of the time, when it comes down to it...he loves her. He is saying that whatever they went throught he puts behind him cause "it's Friday and I'm in love!"

    General CommentOral sex? Come on... it's the Cure. They're much more romantic than that, I think.

    The last stanza sounds like it's describing a night at an amusement park or something.
    "Dressed up to the eyes," shows that she's... well... dressed up. That probably means that they're out.
    "To see your shoes and your spirits rise." Shoes rising. That could mean that she's jumping. Or it could be an amusement park ride.
    "And just smiling at the sound." Sound, eh? Amusement parks do tend to be noisy.
    "And as sleek as a shriek." Shriek. Getting the point?
    "Spinning round and round." This one's pretty obvious.
    "Always take a big bite." Cotton candy. Yum.

    I like to interpret this in the same way that rockorager did, where it's a relationship where most of the time, it doesn't appear to be all that great on the surface, but every now and then, there's a happy time, represented by "Friday" in this song, when he can really appreciate how much he loves her.

    General CommentIn an interview, Robert Smith himself said that this song was an out and out love song... but I think the lyrics should explain this themselves. Who got the idea that it was about a drug addiction?

    General CommentWhat I think about when I hear this song is something like this:

    You have a crush on a girl (or a boy) and you can't wait to see them again. But you are always working on weekdays and you don't have the nerves to call them after work. So you are just waiting for Friday so you can get drunk and brave enough to go talk to her, and hopefully get closer than just talking.

    It's probably not what Robert Smith had in mind but it's how I connect it.

    General CommentThis song came out when i was in II standard so like alot of the songs of the last 80's & early 90's, i have childhood attachments to it. This is such a super fun song, i dont care if it's about sex or drugs, i love it!! It's one of the most fun videos to watch! Fully grown men running around, acting all silly as if they're having the best food fight of their lives!! Priceless!! I have to admit though, this is the only Cure song i know.hehe.
