It's getting late I haven't seen my date
So tell me when the boys get here
It's seven o'clock and I want to rock
Want to get a belly full of beer

My old man's drunker than a bar full of winos
And his old lady she don't care
My sisters lookin' cute in her braces and boots
And a handful of grease in her hair

Oh don't give us none of your aggravation
We had it with your discipline
Saturday night's alright for fighting
Get a little action in

Get about as oiled as a diesel train
Gonna set this town alight
Saturday night's the night I like
Saturday night's alright alright alright, oh oh oh

P-p-p-p-packed pretty tight in here tonight
I'm looking for a woman to treat me right
I could use a little muscle to get what I need
I'll drink a fifth of jack and scream out, "She's with me"

A couple of the sounds that I really like
Are the sounds of a switchblade and a motorbike
And I'm a juvenile product of the working class
Whose best friend floats from the bottom of a glass

Don't give us none of your aggravation
We had it with your discipline
Saturday night's alright for fighting
Get a little action in

Get about as oiled as a diesel train
Gonna set this town alight
Saturday night's the night I like
Saturday night's alright alright alright, oh oh oh

Oh don't give us none of your aggravation
We had it with your discipline
Saturday night's alright for fighting
Get a little action in

Get about as oiled as a diesel train
Gonna set this town alight
Saturday night's the night I like
Saturday night's alright

Ooh Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday night's alright

Ooh Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday night's alright

Ooh Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday night's alright

    General CommentThis is just an awesome song especially Nickelback's version. Elton John's version wasn't that bad either.

    General Commentlol LOVE THIS SONG.. it's soo true... Nickelback's version is more rockish.. lol... This song is a hockey song..

    "So tell me when the boys get here
    It's seven o'clock and I want to rock"

    this part means.. when do the hockey players get it.. and usually it's 7o clock.. lol.. and and...

    Mainly "saturday night in canada" sometimes uses this as their theme song .. or what ever you call it.. hints the "satuday, saturday, saturday night's alright.. " lol

    General CommentIt's also been used on TBS's Saturday Night College Football. It's not better or worse than the Elton John version, it's just different. Both are good, though.

    General CommentIt doesn't really have any meaning coming from Nickelback, it's just a fairly poor cover of a good Elton John song.
