"Come Saturday" as written by and William Douglas Kerry Tucker....
I can't stand to see your picture
On the dresser where I left it
Another sunny day
And you're eighty miles away, Tuesday

Come Saturday, you'll come to stay
You'll come to sway in my arms
Who cares if there's a party somewhere
We're gonna stay in

And come Saturday, you'll come to say
Maybe there's no harm
In a wasted summer with no drama
We're gonna stay in

I could stand to be a fixture
In your faded family picture
But I can't see into the sunset
All I know is that you're perfect right now

Come Saturday, you'll come to stay
You'll come to sway in my arms
Who cares if there's a party somewhere
We're gonna stay in

Come Saturday, you'll come to say
Maybe there's no harm
In a wasted summer with no drama
We're gonna stay in

You don't have to write at all
You don't have to make a call
I know that you will come again and again
You don't have to dress to please
Perhaps undress for me
I know that when you come we'll be staying in

    My InterpretationI see it as a song of youthful longing. They don't have much time together or they don't see each other often. "I can't stand to see your picture..." "I don't want to be a fixture in your faded family picture..." the verses suggest they mostly see each other in treasured photographs. But Come Saturday they make the most of what they have and spend every waking hour together.

    Of course it can't last forever "I can't see in to the sunset" But he's living in the moment and enjoying what they've got "All I know is that you're perfect right now"

    Of course, maybe I'm being coy about the whole thing. There are some massive double entendre worked in there.
