Saturday Night's Alright For Sleeping

It's gettin' late and we couldn't wait. Me and Ma just downed 12 cold beers. It's seven o'clock and we both are crocked. And my drug dealer’s fi-nal-ly here. My ole Dad’s a stinkin’ like a skunk who’s been binge drinkin’ as my poor Mom slumps in her chair. My sister looks hot after smoking some pot. I’m hoping that she’ll surely share-a! OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! – C'mon and give me some medications! I've had it with your saccharine! Whoa! Saturday Night's alright for sleeping. Getta little shut-eye in. Gonna be as sleepy as Van Winkles brain. Gonna set my clock – yeah, right! Cause Saturday Night’s tonight, goodnight! Saturday Night’s tonight – Goodnight…Goodniiiiiiight! Woooooooh!Oooooooh!Ooooh!Ooooh!Ooooh! Well I’m whacked fairly tight and feeling light. Taking one more Percocet will do me right. I may slug some Robitussin and suck-in some weed. Popping three more oxycontins will be all I’ll need! A couple-of-a drugs that are really keen Are Sominex and Nytol with doxylamine. I'm a juvenile junkie who hasn’t any class Watching Motrin PM tablets fizz in a glass. OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! – C'mon and give me some medications! I'm tired of potassium! Saturday Night's alright for sleeping. Getta couple Zzzz-Zzzz’s in. Gonna guzzle Ny-Quil ‘til I feel no pain. Pullin’ down my shades real tight. Cause Saturday Night’s tonight, goodnight! Saturday Night’s tonight – Goodnight…Goodniiiiiiight! Oooooooh!Oooooooh!Ooooh!Ooooh!Ooooh! Saturday…Saturday! Saturday…Saturday…Saturday! Saturday…Saturday…Saturday! Saturday Night, goodnight! Saturday…Saturday! Saturday…Saturday…Saturday! Saturday…Saturday…Saturday! Saturday Night, goodnight! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! For: Mr. John Heck Dear John contest - Elton John (music)/Bernie Taupin (lyrics) Sung to the tune of: Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting

Very sad....Good luck in the contest..Interesting write but if a person were to do all that I don't think that they would make it until Sunday..Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my work..I think that maybe you were the only person who knew that I was speaking of "The Little Rascals"..Sara

I'm sure John will like this entry into his contest. It is not easy to add new lyrics to such a fast melody, but you performed very well with this presentation.

Kory, you employed some great satire in your interpretation of the Elton John song. It also fits well with the melody if you sing these lyrics aloud as I did. Best wishes for success in John's contest, Carolyn
