Song Spotlight: Long Live The Weekend By The Living End

Time to take an up close look at a new song. Sometimes it's amazing just how perfectly a band can get it. Take for example, take the Aussie punkabilly band The Living End, who get it just right with this tune from their 5th album, which just came out here in the US last month.

Workin' for a man that you don't understand
so forget it.
Spendin' all your dough, yeah, you know
as soon as you get it.
Wastin' Your time on an assembly line
you want out of it.
Pickin' up your pay at the end of the day
and get out of it.
And Get away.
Cause you're wonderin' if its gonna change
Cause the weekdays are the same as always
never changing.

Make or break,
Another Escape.
I gotta get out, I gotta get out.
Make or break,
Another escape.
I gotta get out, I gotta get out.
Long live,
The weekend.

Monday - Don't want to get out of bed.
Tuesday - I'm walking with the dead.
Wednesday - Never felt so wrong.
Thursday - Takes twice as long.
But Friday, I know where I'm gonna be
faraway from the same old
everyday, ordinary.

Make or break
Another escape
I gotta get out, I gotta get out.
Make or break
another escape
i gotta get out, i gotta get out.
Long live,
the weekend
Long live the weekend.

Week in. Week out.
Week in. Week out.
Week in, week out. Week In, week out.
I don't care if if I don't get paid.
I can't sit here for one more day...
Wasting away.
Cause now you're wondering if it's gonna change
Cause the weekdays are all the same as always
Never changing

Make or break
Another escape.
I gotta get out, I gotta get out.
Make or break
another escape.
I gotta get out I gotta get out.
Long live the weekend
Long live the weekend
Long live the weekend.
