"Another Saturday Night" as written by and Sam Cooke....
"Rolling, 'Saturday Night', take eight"
"Here we go
One, two, three, four"

Another Saturday night
And I ain't got nobody
I got some money 'cause I just got paid
Now, how I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in an awful way
Let me tell you 'bout it, lookie here

I got in town a month ago
I seen a lotta girls since then
If I could meet 'em I could get 'em
But as yet I haven't met 'em
That's why I'm in the shape I'm in

Here, another Saturday night
And I ain't got nobody
I got some money 'cause I just got paid
Now, how I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in an awful way

Now, another fella told me
He had a sister who looked just fine
Instead of being my deliverance
She had a strange resemblance
To a cat named Frankenstein

Here, another Saturday night
And I ain't got nobody
I got some money 'cause I just got paid
Now, how I wish I had some chick to talk to
I'm in an awful way, yeah

Man, another Saturday night, ain't got nobody
If I'd've been back home now, I'd've been swinging
Two chicks on my arm
Lord, sad weekend
Let me tell you now, huh

It's hard on a fella
When he don't know his way around
If I don't find me a honey
To help me spend my money
I'm gonna have to blow this town

Here, another Saturday night
And I ain't got nobody
I got some money 'cause I just got paid
Now, how I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in an awful

Here it is, another Saturday night
And I ain't got nobody
I got some money 'cause I just got paid
Now, how I wish I had some chick to talk to
I'm in an awful

One more time, another Saturday night
And I ain't got nobody
I got some money 'cause I just got paid
Now I wish I had some chick to talk to
I'm in an awful

    General CommentI like how when the backup singers say "someone" in the chorus, he keeps saying "some chick" instead.

    Also the word "deliverance" seems like an element of Sam's early gospel days, which makes the "Frankenstein" line that much funnier

    General CommentTo a modern ear this is quite misogynistic - "find me a honey to help me spend my money", "If I could meet [girls[ I could get 'em", "if I was back home I'd be swinging
    Two chicks on my arm" and the Frankenstein line. But it sounds good.

    Song MeaningI can't believe no one has pointed out the obvious truth here. The song is about renting out a hooker for the night. Why else would the money be such a central point in the song? "If I don't find me a honey to help me spend my money" ? Perhaps he meant it a bit more directly than you've given him credit for.
