"Saturday Night" as written by and Jerry/randl Rix....
Da dum
Da dum
Da dum
Da dum

S-s-suddenly there's a knock at your head
Don't let them in because they'll try to take your TV set
Ha-ha-ha-happiness is a ball in your hand
You've got to try and throw this party just as far as you can

Cre-cre-cre-creosote is pouring out of my brain
I swear I heard the floor boards they were creaking your name
G-g-get a room, get a head, get a hat
We're going to hell anyway lets travel first class

Cut through the city on a Saturday night
Watching the boys on their motorbikes
I wanna be like those guys
I wanna wear my clothes tight
With matching jackets and a fistful of notes
New sneakers, and a fresh pack of smokes

P-p-pneumothorax is a word that is long
They're just trying to put some punk back into punctured lung
P-p-p-panic over, party off, party on
'Cause we are birds of a feather and you can be the fat one

Come to the city on a Saturday night
Over your heads like a satellite
I wanna see what they see
I wanna love you like crazy
Those cameras are pointing right in your face
Can see into your room from outer space

Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh
Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh
Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh
Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh wow, oh

Cut through the city on a Saturday night
It's not the size of the man in the fight
I wanna know what that does
I wanna show what matters
Cause it's the size of the fight in the man
That makes the difference and decides who is champ

Cut through the city on a Saturday night
'Cause you and me are we're on the edge of the knife

Cut through the city on a Saturday night
I asked your mother and she said it's alright
We'll get married when we're thirty
I want to do it on your birthday
'Cause I don't wanna waste a moment with you
I just wanna dance the whole night through

Cut through the city on a Saturday night
'Cause you and me, we're on the edge of a knife

    General Commentlol, vvvvery wrong lyrics!!! here are the ones on the album :)

    S-s-s-s suddenly ther'es a knock at your head
    Don't let them in because they're trying to take your TV set
    Happiness is the ball in your hand
    You've got to try and throw this party just as far as you can

    C-c-c-creosote Is pouring out of my brain
    I swear I heard the floorboards they were creaking your name
    Get a room, Get a head get a hat
    We're going to hell anyway lets travel first class

    Cut through the city on a Saturday night
    Watching the boys on their motorbikes
    I wanna be like those guys
    I wanna wear my clothes tight
    Matching jackets and a fist full of notes
    New sneakers and a fresh pack of smokes

    P-p-p-pneumothorax is a word that is long
    They’re just tryin’ to put the punk back into punctured lung
    P-p- p-panic over party off party on
    We are birds of a feather and you can be the fat one

    Cut through the city on a Saturday night
    Over your heads like a satellite
    I wanna see what they see, I wanna love you like crazy
    When cameras are pointing right at your face
    Can see into your room from outer space

    Cut through the city on a Saturday night
    It’s not the size of the man in the fight
    I wanna know what that does, I wanna show you what matters
    ‘Cos it’s the size of the fight in the man
    that makes the difference and decides who is champ
    Cut through the city on a Saturday Night
    Cos you and me are on the edge of a knife

    Cut through the city on a Saturday night
    I asked your mother and she says it's alright
    We'll get married when we're thirty
    I wanna do it on your birthday
    Cos I don't wanna waste a moment with you
    I just wanna dance the whole night through
    Cut through the city on a Saturday night
    Cos you and me are on the edge of a knife

    General Commentthis song makes me think along drug or drink influenced lines... a lot of them are very mad random thoughts that you might associate with someone who's under the influence of something or other.

    General Commenti agree with dropsof that it is about drugs. It is about smoking, doing drugs, getting into fights and thinking it is cool and the only way to have fun

    C-c-c-creosote Is pouring out of my brain
    I swear I heard the floorboards they were creaking your name

    this is a reference to inhaling creosote.

    Matching jackets and a fist full of notes
    New sneakers and a fresh pack of smokes

    the notes refered to here are either money or doobies that are not yet rolled, personally i believe it is the drug one since that seems to be the overwelming point of this song.

    P-p-p-pneumothorax is a word that is long
    They’re just tryin’ to put the punk back into punctured lung

    pneumothorax is a bunch of gas in a cavity of the lung that results from either injuring the luing or a treatment for tuberculosis which of course is caused by smoking. So it could be a reference to smoking or to getting hurt (possibly on the motorcycle mentioned previously in the song)

    It’s not the size of the man in the fight
    I wanna know what that does, I wanna show you what matters
    ‘Cos it’s the size of the fight in the man
    that makes the difference and decides who is champ
    Cut through the city on a Saturday Night
    Cos you and me are on the edge of a knife

    this refers to fighting and the last line probily is meant to show that they are out looking for a fight, or it could be broadend to mean living on the edge and taking drugs and smoking.
