As I was walkin' by
Saw you standin' there with a smile
Lookin' shy, you caught my eye
Thought you'd want to hang for a while
Well I'd like to be with you
And you know it's Friday too
I hope you can find the time
This weekend to relax and unwind

My mind's tired
I've worked so hard all week (ooh, all week)
Cashed my check
I'm ready to go
I promise you
I'll show you such a good time

Come on, baby, let's get away
Let's save our troubles for another day
Come go with me, we've got it made
Let me take you on an escapade (let's go)

Escapade
We'll have a good time
Escapade
Leave your worries behind
Escapade
Well, you could be mine
Escapade
An escapade

So don't hold back
Just have a good time, yeah, yeah
We'll make the rules up as we go along
And break them all if we're not havin' fun

Come on, baby, let's get away (ooh)
Let's save our troubles for another day (ooh)
Come go with me, we've got it made (ooh)
Let me take you on an escapade (on an escapade)

Come on, baby, let's get away (ooh)
Let's save our troubles for another day (ooh)
Then go with me, we've got it made (ooh)
Let me take you on an escapade (let's go)

Minneapolis
Come on

Escapade
We'll have a good time
Escapade
Leave your worries behind
Escapade
Well you could be mine
Escapade
An escapade

My mind's tired, worked so hard (ooh, ooh)
Worked so hard all week (through the week)
I just got paid, we've got it made
Ready to go
I promise you, I'll show you such a good time

Come on, baby, let's get away (ooh) (baby, come on, now)
Let's save our troubles for another day (ooh) (save it for another day)
Come go with me, we've got it made (ooh) (baby, come on, now)
Let me take you on an escapade (on an escapade) (take the escapade)

Come on, baby, let's get away (ooh) (baby, come on, now)
Let's save our troubles for another day (ooh) (save it for another day)
Come go with me, we've got it made (ooh) (go on an escapade)
Let me take you on an escapade (let's go)

Come on, baby, let's get away (ooh) (escapade)
Let's save our troubles for another day (ooh) (escapade)
Come go with me, we've got it made (ooh) (escapade)
Let me take you on an escapade (escapade)
On an escapade, baby
