Saturdays Child - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics

By david gates

Monday had a sad child
Always feeling low down,
Tuesday had a dream child
She's always on the go
Now i'm in love with saturday's child
She drives me wild
Gonna spend my time
Makin' sure that saturday's child is mine.

If you love a wednesday
You'll live your life apart now
And if you love a thursday
She's gonna break your heart,
So i'm in love with saturday's child
She drives me wild
Gonna spend my time
Makin' sure that saturday's child is mine.

Seven days of the week made to choose from
But only one is right for me
I know that saturday's got what it takes, babe.
I can tell by the way she looks at me

Friday likes the good life
She'll take you for a ride now
And sunday makes a good wife
But she wants to be a bride
So i'm in love with saturday's child
She drives me wild
Gonna spend my time
Makin' sure that saturday's child is mine.
